Help Corina study abroad in London

$6,150 of $6,137 goal

Raised by 66 people in 40 months

Hi everyone! My name is Corina Vatthongxay. I am 19-years-old and am currently a full-time student in my sophomore year at American River College in Sacramento, CA.  Since summer 2012, American River College's Professor Mark Stewart takes his students on a hands-on learning experience to London. I would like to be one of those students who goes to study abroad in London this summer 2015. Going on this trip would be a great experience to not only travel, but to learn about the culture in London as well.  I would be pushing myself outside of my comfort zone, but I am sure it will be well worth it. In London, we get to visit five museums, the home of  Charles Darwin, three galleries, and so much more. I would also complete a 3-unit course in "Psychology 415: Psychological Elements of British Life and Culture" while being there.The program itself costs $4,395.00 (not including airfare or food). I have only included the program cost and airfare to raise. I, unfortunately, do not receive any financial aid to help me pay for the program, but I do work part-time at my local ULTA Beauty and am applying for scholarships. I don't make much money, but most of the I do make goes towards gas and textbooks. Therefore, I am here asking you to please help me reach my goal by donating or passing the word along for others to hear, so I can experience this incredible opportunity. Thank you so much for your time.

$5,010 raised for my London study abroad program for this summer! If you would kindly share my GoFundMe page, spread the word, and/or contribute, I would greatly appreciate it. 8 weeks ago, I started to raise money so that I would be able to study abroad this summer. I admit that I had a really rough and stressful start. With the help of many friends and family, I was able to overcome that emotional obstacle. I want to especially thank my friends and family who have not only contributed by donating money, but who have gone above and beyond to make this possible for me by staying updated with me and encouraging me through words of love and support. I was literally defeated at a point in time until I talked to Apple Manisap who encouraged me to push through for myself. I am so grateful to have the support I have and gained. Please continue to help me at!

Please please please continue to help me by telling all your friends and family about my campaign to better my college experience. I leave in 6.5 weeks to London and only have about two weeks left to finish my payment. Thank you so much, everyone! ✈️
