Maddie's Mission Trip to Peru

I have the opportunity to travel to Peru in May 2018 with a volunteers around the world program at The Ohio State University. For this trip, a group of 20 students are selected with an interest in dentistry to go and provide dental care to less fortunate areas in Peru. The students shadow dentists, learn how to take vitals, go to orphanages and teach children about dental hygenine, and learn about the culture and medical practices in this foreign country. It has always been a dream of mine to go to Peru and I am praying I am able to go despite the cost.  It has also been my dream to become a dentist since I was 9 years old. I think this trip would be life changing and allow me to fully accept my future as a dentist.  The funds would go towards medical expenses, housing, food, and a plane ticket. I would ideally appreciate the funds before March and you would be supporting both myself and the people of Peru.  In conclusion, I would just like to thank you in advance for considering funding me for this amazing opportunity. I would also like to thank you in advance for your concern for the people in Peru and supporting equal medical opportunity for all.
