Study Abroad: China


My name is Felix Zavala, and I attend college at the University of Michigan studying Movement Science with a current GPA of a 3.0. While enrolled at the University of Michigan's School of Kinesiology this freshman year, I applied to Go Global study abroad. I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to China's cities of Beijing and Shanghai for study credit at two Universities: Shanghai Sports University and Beijing Sport university. This trip would be from May 26 to June 10th.

Throughout the trip, I will have the opportunity to visit the Great Wall of China and many other popular sights. It has been my dream for years now to visit parts of the world, especially parts of Asia. I only left the country once, and that was when I visited family in Mexico when I was eight years old. Now, I am 19 and coming from a working-class family. I knew for a fact that plane tickets would be costly for my family, let alone tuition and expenses.  I want to take advantage of studying in a complete new environment, and I do not want something like the cost of a plane ticket or tuition to hinder me from an opportunity that could change my life.

I am creating this GoFundMe because I can use the help paying for my plane ticket , tuition, and expenses. All donations will be appreciated greatly because you can make my dream of traveling to Asia come true, and this will help be an extremely amazing help to my family. Even if the message is passed along, I will be grateful to have it spread.  I wan to reach my goal by the end of May 4th in hopes that the price of my plane ticket does not increase. In advance, thank you for supporting my dream and goals and sharing the message. 

With Much Love,
Felix Z.
