Utopia's Study Abroad in Cuba

$3,615 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 47 people in 35 months
Hello all my supporters,  I am asking for your support to study abroad in Cuba this summer with  Skyline College.  I will receive units in Social Science towards my Assoicate's Degree. This trip will cost $6000.00. Please help me go! It's an 11 day trip that will be a n experience of a life time. 

I'm in school full time , after a year in a half I made the Dean's  list with a 4.0, and I am now a Phi Theta Kappa honor student. Out of 9,000 students 649 made the Dean's list. At the Phi Theta Kappa Induction, 1 out of 2 African Americans were honored (I being 1 of them) into this society.

I have been in school full time as well as being the full time care giver of my uncle who has a terminal illness. Its been a real challenge to do everything and I hope that I can find support. I have had a hard time with the car accident in 2012 which then I lost my job and was on unemployment, but I am turning my life around to apply myself to my academic studies.

As the bible says, "If you ask you shall receive." Faith + Hope = Belief.

I am not only proud of myself but now I am inspired beyond belief. I know with dedication, sacrifice, and commitment, the world has yet to see what Utopia Hammond  can do to bring fourth change and empower the next generation. 

Please help me achieve what I used to think was impossible, your support would mean so much to me and would empower me. 

Sincerely Your Hard Working Student & Caregiver,
Utopia Hammond.

Couldn't have done it without each and everyone of y'all. You just don't know how much each donation means to me.

I was devastated to find out I can only bring a 44lb bag to Cuba. My plan was to donate items such as reading glasses to seniors, sandals/flip flops and toys to kids and feminine products for women if my $8000.00 goal was reached but now I lowered the goal to $6000.00 since I can no longer bring these items to Cuba.
