CROWDRISING SINCE: Jun 28, 2016
Stuff About Me:

Good day to you my esteemed guests!

My name is Alexandra and I am a recent graduate (May 8th, 2016) of a Bachelors of Art in Foreign Languages and Communication Arts. My education and my insatiable thirst for knowledge are two of my biggest accomplishments in life and sources of fulfillment. Yet, as it often happens once one enters the real world financials become a temporary obstacle for the pursuit of growth in areas of more value for personal pursuits. This is my case since I am currently looking for a job, yet based on my calculations I will have to work for 12 months in order to achieve my financial goal to carry on my growth and continue my education in life and kindness. My deadline to start my education in life is January 31th, 2017

I am sure you wonder what drives me and that is why I will share what are my hopes and dreams for life. About 2 years ago before completing my degree I stumbled upon information about a program that allows individuals with a degree to travel abroad to countries that are in need of expanding their understanding of the English language. As a language major I always have had the want to experience different cultures and learning different languages, so I thought this was something that lined up perfectly with my long life pursuits. As a communications major I have always found different cultures intriguing and interesting. This program is my Holy Grail! The idea of giving back through this mission is an important one for me because, I came from a different country (Dominican Republic) to America at the age of eleven and therefore have first hand understanding of how important it is for people of other nationalities to know how to speak English, especially if they wish to participate in the important decisions happening in developed nations, so that they can understand how they are affected. I know that sounds like a big task from that perspective but, I strongly feel that knowledge is the bridge between progress and regression and this is the best way I know how to give. 

In the fundraisers posted on my profile you will find the 2 main goals I have until January 31th, 2017. One of my projects is to get a job (I just got a call from a hotel! :D) and save as much money to put towards this goal. Another one will be my Miles for Knowledge challenge (French Edition), which you can learn all about on my profile as well. This challenge's fundraise is more personal but equally important for my intellectual needs and pursuits and I truly need all of the motivation I can get for you dear guest! So stay tune!!!!!!!!!!!

My ultimate dream for the future in possibly 5 years tops is to get my Masters Degree from the University of Denver in International & Intercultural Communications. I believe that the dream plan I have crafted in order to achieve this goal is highly doable and I am truly willing to put the time and effort to make it happen on my end. The one thing that seems to me like the biggest obstacle however is my financial status, and that is the main reason why I chose to reach out to you all expecting nothing perhaps but the kindness of luck. 

I sincerely thank you all for taking the time to read my story and take a peak at my aspirations. I invite you to follow along my Miles for Knowledge challenge so that perhaps we can continue to inspire each other. <3>

Respectfully, 

Alexandra Almanzar.
