Need help: Youth Leadership Forum

I was selected through an academic partnership with George Mason University and invited to attend a national leadership forum on medicine which is being held at a number of select Universities nationwide.  I chose Emory University because it's a nationally recognized university for medicine; plus it's local too. 

Among the numerous benefits in attending, I will enhance my academic skills and discover how to step forward as a leader throughout the rest of my education and beyond.

I will be visiting and practicing in the same training simulation centers that med students, residents, and physicians use to hone their medical skills.  I will gain hands-on experience in a variety of medical procedures using the latest technology used by medical professionals, with guidance from experts.  I will watch a real-life medical video and have a physician talk me through the procedure and answer questions in real-time.  

By taking part in the program, I will learn all about the medical school application process, explore the many career options available, and specifically identify strategies, academic pathways, and career skills I need to be successful in the medical and health fields.

I will discover and begin applying communication, conflict resolution, critical thinking, and decision-making skills that will help me become a strong, motivated leader both in school and in my future career.

I am an 11th grade homeschool student using a nationally and internationally recognized accredited program in which I maintain a 4.12 GPA.  I am the youth leader for my church and perform in our dance ministry.

My participation in the program depends on whether I can raise $4,300 in sponsorships by June 15th, 2018, which will cover tuition, housing, two meals per day (for this 9 day forum), instruction, supervisory personnel, program materials, all forum activities, site discoveries, local transportation during the program, and donation related transaction fees.

Imagine if you had been given this opportunity for a life-changing experience when you were in school and were unable to participate due to lack of funds.  That is why I am asking you - your support for my sponsorship request is sooooo greatly appreciated.  Will you help me.  Thanks in advance for your generosity.
