THE STORY:

Hello friends and family! For those of you that do not already know, I am a double major in biology and chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. I am declared pre-medicine in hopes of of attending medical school and becoming an Obstetrician/Gynecologist. I am doing everything in my power to make myself a well-rounded and ideal medical student. This has included becoming a certified nursing assistant, taking 18 credit semesters, joining a team of biology students and faculty to do research on the boundary waters next summer, and volunteering for the Mayo Clinic and Eau Claire's Humane Society all while making my education my priority. As of late I have been searching for a cultural immersion experience that would benefit others as much as it would teach me. Well, the opportunity of a lifetime was opened up for me recently. It is an 11 day volunteer trip to Nicaragua and Costa Rica on which myself and other UW system students will be working at free health care clinics that help underserved rural communities. There are three separate teams going: medical, dental, and veterinary. I am a part of the medical team and will be able to practice (basic) real life medicine on real life patients! Something that I otherwise would not have the chance to do. I have developed passions for travel, volunteerism, and health care and this trip will allow me to exercise all three. This is when I ask for your help. The cost of the trip (trip cost+flights+meals) will total to $3,000. I know that it seems costly and trust me, I have tried to find reasons that I shouldn't go because I understand the value of saving money. But I genuinely believe that being able to give my time and learn invaluable lessons is something that I should not give up on. That being said I ask for your help in making this something that is financially achievable. Any donation is hugely appreciated whether it be $2, well wishes on my travels, or $60 million (which I would promise to use towards paying off my medical school student debt :D )!! If you have ANY questions please message me, text me, call me, or come hunt me down in person. Below I have posted the link to the medical program's page if you want more information on what exactly I will be doing. Thank you all again so much, I promise to make all of you proud. Much love, H http://www.vidavolunteer.org/medical-program
