On Easter Sunday, Bryan Davia, 24, passed away suddenly. It's a tragedy in every sense of the word, not only for those of us that knew him but for those of you who will never have the opportunity meet him and have their lives made better by his raw, uncut positivity and happiness. He had so much more good to do and so many more lives he was going to make better, and just because he is no longer with us physically does not mean that his spirit and the good he was going to do needs to vanish as well.
His whole mantra in life was to experience everything he possibly could and to get as much joy out of life as possible. Everyone who knew him was lucky to be able to see him live his life exactly how he wanted to - full of loving relationships, happy times, and as many experiences as possible - and really succeed in everything he did. Excelling in school, traveling the world, getting a great job right out of college, and making friends with everyone he met on the way. We want future people, who will never get to the opportunity meet him, to live their lives like he would have wanted them to, and to have the experiences that he cared so much for and that made him the incredible person that he was.
That is why we are creating the Bryan Davia Study Abroad Scholarship, to allow more people to experience what Bryan valued in hopes of continuing to spread his love and passion to as many people as possible. This scholarship will give people the opportunity to see new places, eat foods they've never had, experience different cultures, turn strangers into friends, discover a part of themselves they didn't know existed, and most importantly find what makes them happy. Bryan knew that when you cut through all the other crap in life, what it really comes down to is being happy. He did everything he could to make himself, and more importantly those around him, happy. With this scholarship he will be able to continue speed joy and to make people happy, like he did every day.
Our initial goal is to raise $25,000, which will allow us to give out a recurring $1000 scholarship every year to someone to spend on studying abroad. However, the more money we raise, the more scholarships we'll be able to give out, which means even more people will be able to travel the world and find what makes them happy.
