Izzie in Spain
Organized by: Izzie Ramirez
EVENT DATE Mar 01, 2016
I'm Izzie and if you know me, you know that one of my goals is to learn the six languages of the United Nations before I turn 60. One of these languages is Spanish. While my parents do speak it, I do not. I was bullied out of speaking the language when I was really young and now I'm trying my hardest to come back to my roots. I've been in Spanish classes all throughout high school, and I thought that a study abroad trip before I go to college would be the best way to continue my studies.
I'll be studying in San Sebastián, Spain for six weeks with the SPI Study Abroad Program. It's a full immersion program, so I'll be staying with a family. I'll also be attending advanced Spanish classes as well as a few electives such as Spanish and Basque cooking. You can read more here.
However, I can't do it without you! Total costs will be around $11,000 for tuition and the flight. The deadline for the application is March 1, but I need to have a $1000 down payment by then and ideally I would like to have purchased a plane ticket by then as well. If you can help me raise $2000, you'll be helping me secure the initial funds for the trip.
If donating directly isn't your thing, but you would still like to support me, you can buy a t-shirt from me. I'll only order t-shirts if I get more than 100 responses on this form.
