Devin's Intensive Portuguese & Research Trip to Brazil
Organized by: Devin Murphy
EVENT DATE Jul 17, 2016
Hi Friends and Family,
Thank you all for your support over these past five years! If you have not already heard, I have finally graduated from UCLA! This would not have been the case had it not been for the Higher Power and the love, support, and generosity of my friends and family.
As a last 'hoorah' to my time at UCLA, I'll be traveling to Salvador, Brasil for UCLA's Intensive Portuguese language and Research Program abroad. In addition to studying Portuguese in Brasil, I will be researching cultural and social movements of Black Brazilieans. While I have received a $2,000 scholarship from the Elks Foundation and some funds from UCLA, the program is not fully funded. If possible, I'd like to not take out any loans for this research trip.
Here's how you can help:
1) Anything you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. I ask you to donate anything you can--$1, $5, $10, $20, $50, or whatever you can!
2) Share this link on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat) or email to family and friends. It takes a village!
3) Send me words of wisdom, travel tips, questions you think I should consider, prayers, good vibes, etc. This is a very exciting opportunity for me, and I plan to make the best of it!
EVERY. DONATION. WILL. MAKE. A. DIFFERENCE.
Thanks again, family. Love you all and forever grateful.
