My Au Pair Trip: Bonnieux, France

Bonjour mes amis,

I am fortunate enough to have the opportunity to study abroad/take care of children in the place of my dreams, FRANCE! I will take on this 3 month adventure, focusing on practicing French (my minor) while also exploring all the beautiful scenery and culture this country has to offer.

Unfortunately, this voyage is out of my budget, especially as a college student already in debt. A roundtrip ticket to France is nearly two grand.

I've NEVER traveled outside of the United States but I am determined to make this summer my time to fly. While my financial fears still stand, I am also aware that giving up before I try is not an option. If I can make this work, I plan on using what I learn in France to further shape my identity and aid the communities I care about.

Your donation will make it possible for me to go on a trip of a LIFEITME. I am grateful for any donation within your means...every penny counts.

This is an incredible, once in a lifetime experience and I thank all of you for your consideration and generosity in helping me follow this dream.

I can't even begin to describe how excited I am to share part of this journey with you via my instagram @nessahopee...

If you would like to contact me please use my main e-mail for a fast response: [email redacted]

Peace and love,
