I am 16 years old.
My high school has provided me the educational opportunity to travel overseas to Spain, Italy and France in March 2017. I must complete two years of Spanish before leaving for the trip, maintain a high grade point average, have good citizenship, obtain a visa, and pay the tour fee.
I have completed the first year of Spanish and my grade point average is above the requirement and I strive to be the best person I can be every day.
I live with my mom. She works full time to support and raise me, my grandma helps. My moms family has agreed to help me with as many expenses as they can either by providing me with work for hire, helping me make crafts and baked goods to sell or financial contributions. The rest is up to me. I am working at various ways to earn money for this trip. This includes working odd jobs for family and community neighbors, making and selling craft projects and baked goods along with selling candy bars, garage sales, school fundraisers and seeking sponsors.
If you are interested in supporting my efforts, I have a gofundme page where I can accept donations. I will also be posting craft sales and garage sale information on my Facebook page.
