BENEFITING: PACIFIC UNION COLLEGE
EVENT DATE: Sep 15, 2013
As a senior and almost-graduate of Pacific Union College, I have spent the last 16 years of my life (a.k.a. the majority of it) as a student.
Now I'd like to try something different and be the one doing the instructing. I am currently applying to teach English at a small Adventist school in Madrid, Spain. Teaching may not be my future career, but as an intercultural communications and Spanish major, it's right up my alley and is my opportunity to share what I have.
I'm here on Crowdrise to ask if you'd be willing to do the same: share what you have. Learning another language has opened my mind, doubled my opportunities, excited my wonder for cultures, and humbled me at the realization of how big this world really is. I'd like to do the same for other kids by sharing my mother tongue with the country that shared its own with me.
You can donate on this site and receive a receipt for tax deductible purposes, or you can write a check to the Pacific Union College Church, marking "Student Missions" in the lower left-hand corner. Please do not write my name on the check; though the money will go to me, it also benefits Student Missions as a whole.
My brother's going on a mission trip, too! Check out his page on crowdrise.com/mdumanila
