DACA Abroad - because dreams have no borders
Organized by: Giovanna Quilapanta
My name is Giovanna Quilapanta. I am a DACAmented student who immensely desires to study abroad.
Since I enrolled in college, I have been paying for my educational expenses out of pocket. Working double jobs and with my family’s support, I am in my senior year at Queens College. Before I graduate, I want to have the opportunity to explore abroad. I love diversity and I love learning about other cultures … and what best way to emerge myself in a different culture than living it!
The program will be this Summer 2016 during the month of June. I will be in Italy, taking International Marketing at Florence University of Arts. This program will benefit my education and career in varies positive ways. It will be a unique experience for a lifetime, an opportunity to nurture my knowledge, develop skills and enriched my appreciation for another culture.
As a DACAmented recipient, many doors were closed for me for many years . . .now that I can travel, I do not want to miss this opportunity. It fulfills me helping others and with the money that I raise, I will also be supporting other DREAMers who desire to study abroad. Every dollar counts!! Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
