Hi my name is Alysa Vigil and I am raising money to go to a Journalism and Media Conference at George Mason University in Washington D.C. I need your help because a few obstacles are preventing me from going. On July 31, 2014, my older brother was in a car accident which left him a quadraplegic. Because of his accident my younger brother and I had to change schools three different times in one year. It has been a year since his accident, and my family has been on this amazing journey. This accident has brought my family closer together. My parents really want me to go on this trip and so do I. I have always been helping others so it would be nice to get to do something for myself.
