Make Sure Niko Doesn't Starve In Australia Fund

I have been given an amazing opportunity by Texas Tech and Global Experiences. I have been offered an internship at a nonprofit in Sydney, Australia for Spring 2020. I will be leaving Feb. 6th, 2020 and will be spending 3 months there. These funds will go a long way in helping me purchase airfare and my visa that are necessary for such a trip. I know the goal is a bit steep but I wouldn't be asking if I didn't absolutely need it. There are other expenses that I have taken care off, but this will also help with moving out of my apartment and renting a storage unit while I am away. This is such an amazing opportunity that I couldn't refuse and is something that I worked very hard to get. Now its just a matter of having enough funds. 

Thank you so much if you end up donating and even if you can't I would love it if you shared the link to this page!

I will be making videos for every time we pass a tier for this GoFundMe and with every donation, you can suggest what challenges are in store for me in each video!
