Daniel is a 19 year old student from Moldova who came to the US in 2012 as an exchange student through the FLEX program. His academic and musical achievements allowed him a full ride scholarship to experience the US for one year. He grew academically and spiritually, and was a strong part of the worship team at Newlife-Bainbridge. Now in 2014, Daniel would love to return so he can further his studies and get a college education at Seattle Central College. He has been accepted, but is struggling to find the money to attend college.

Daniel's home nation, Moldova, is one of the poorest nations in Europe. It is tucked beside the Ukraine and has been heavily dependent on Russia for its resources. In the past year, Daniel's life has changed dramatically due to the unsettled politics in the region. Daniel has found that his family has had to look outside the nation in order to find work to support their family. His parents now reside in two different nations in order to provide enough money for their family.

What Daniel needs is a chance. He is very interested in studying Computer Science - technology. He is also an amazing drummer who has experience playing in a few different bands. Daniel wants to make a difference in Moldova and knows that the best way to do that is to get a good education. This is where Daniel needs you!

Daniel is awaiting approval on his visa, and it is hung up on the fact that he needs proof that he can fund his time in the US. School starts in a few short months. Can you help him follow his dream? His program costs are $20,000 per year.
