The tuition itself is $3,795. We estimate that a round trip ticket between Tokyo and Chicago will cost about $1,100. My goal is to raise as much as I can towards this $4,895 goal so that we don't have to dip into my college savings.
I will personally try to earn money through babysitting and cookie sales. I'm asking my parents and my grandparents to consider cash gifts in the place of other birthday gifts this year.
Thank you for helping me get to Chicago! It is very much appreciated!
