My semester with Up With People

I have been accepted to travel with the international organization Up With People starting in January 2018. It is a global educational and crosscultural organization where youths from all around the world travel together for six months and do community work as well as perform a multicultural music show. The show in which the Cast sing and dance draws attention to the issues the world face today.  The idea is to inspire people to change the way they want to see the world, and that there are many different ways to do so. 

The funds from this fundraising effort will be a help along the way for me to pay my program fee, and I will need it by the end of the year 2017. 

The support would mean a lot to me since it would help me make one of my dreams come true. I have for as long as I can remember wanted to travel with Up With People. It will be my own way of trying to make the world a better place. I will learn about different cultures and differences, which will help me to continue our journey towards a better world.

Those of you who choose to support me will recieve a newsletter once every three to four weeks. In the newsletter  I would write about the places we visit, my host families and basically my thoughts of the experience. This will be done through e-mail. 

Any contribution, big or small is highly appreciated. I will be forever grateful.
