Cortona, Italy Study Abroad Opportunity

$1,730 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 50 people in 66 months
Dear Family and Friends,

I have been blessed with the opportunity to study abroad in Cortona, Italy. I will be a participant in the Science Maymester Cortona Program where I will be enrolled in two courses: Biology for Medicine and Art History. As a dual degree major in Biology/Pre-Dental and Digital & Broadcast Journalism, this is a great opportunity for me to immerse myself in a new environment and a different culture while taking classes that pertain to my majors.

After completing college I plan to enroll in dental school. Therefore, while in Italy I'm hoping to compare and contrast the operational methods of the healthcare system abroad to those of the healthcare system here in the U.S. Gaining international knowledge pertaining to dental medicine would allow me to learn unique techniques which I could incorporate into my future professional studies.Upon graduating from dental school, I intend on using my broadcast journalism background to create and host my own dental television show, like Dr. Oz and Dr. Gupta, to educate people on proper oral hygiene. This trip would therefore lay the foundation for my future success.

As happy and blessed as I am to be one of a select few chosen, my family and I are unable to pay for this trip. Even though it's discouraging to see that after applying for scholarships & working extra hours to save money I still have six thousand dollars to pay for the trip, I turn to Joshua 1:9 for inspiration, "Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go". I am asking that you support me as I courageously pursue academic excellence. Your contributions will help alleviate program costs, institutional fees, airfare, and meals. Any amount donated would be greatly appreciated as a little goes a long way.

Walt Disney once said, "All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them." I thank you in advance for helping to make my dreams a reality! If you have any questions or would like to know more about my academic endeavors please contact me at wesclark@uga.edu

Sinceramente Grato,



Wesley
