THE STORY:

Quick Introduction: Hi Family and Friends! 21 is definitely a big year, because I'm turning into an adult (globally, including US!!) And I wish to spend it in a meaningful way. To me, birthdays are not always about me, it's an excuse to share happiness with others and appreciate what you have. This year, I came across a 8-year-old little girl called Charrie Dayle from Philippines in Unbound nonprofit organization, and I wish to share my celebration with her. Despite her poor living conditions, she has a strong goal of becoming a teacher. But wait for it, drumroll please...her birthday is also the SAME AS MINE! Through this fundraiser, I wish the funds will be one of the best birthday gifts she has ever received, and allow her to achieve her goals and dreams. Instead of giving me presents, please donate to this fundraiser and help us (me and Charrie) have the best birthday ever! Unbound Website: https://www.unbound.org/Sponsor/SponsorAChild

As I'm turning 21 and into a real adult (yay!), I wish to spend my birthday in a meaningful way and leave a little impact on the world. Throughout my life, I have been lucky enough to have a loving family, caring friends and a great education in a place I call home, Cornell. Education, to me, is essential and critical not only to advance through this competitive society and maintain a stable living, but also to gain a deeper and broader perspective towards the world. With education, you are able to pass on your knowledge to younger generations and learn how to leave an impact on the world. Most importantly, learning is fun! I always thought that it's very unfortunate that children/young adults, people just like me, are not able to receive education due to their family background. So, I decided that this year, my birthday goal is to sponsor a child for education and a better living condition, and I chose to spend my birthday with Charrie Dayle, who has the same birthday as me! It's time to give back :)
