Organized by: Ladaysia Alexander

THE STORY:

My name is Ladaysia Alexander. I've been given the opportunity to go on a trip abroad with the People To People Student Ambassador Program. I am a high school student going in to my Senior Year in high school. When I'm not in class or studying, I'm at practice for Volley Ball and Track & Field, or working at my part time job.

Throughout my life, I have had many struggles. 2 years ago, I was placed in the foster care system and my life got turned upside down. My mother had to raise my siblings and I on her own and it was a hefty task that I often ended up helping with. I ultimately ended up playing a large part in raising my brother and sister. I've always had numerous responsibilities, most of them making me feel like a grown up before my time. There is a lot of pressure for me to do well and succeed in life. This trip abroad offers me the opportunity to break free from the life I have been forced to live and will allow me to experience the world with my own two eyes. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could travel the world, but now that I've been given the chance, I will fight to do just that.

Through my struggles I have continued to thrive in my academics and social life. I have maintained a 3.5 GPA and I am currently on the Dean's List/Honor Roll. I am also a current member of our local Baptist Church. I am a motivated hard worker who wants to go to college to be an Orthopedic Surgeon.

The educational trip I am attempting to fund is scheduled for the Summer of 2015. The People to People program will take me to Spain, Italy, and France where I will be given the opportunity to home-share with locals and experience different cultures first hand. With this trip, I will earn college credits and up to 138,000 service learning hours. This trip is referred to as "The Educational Journey Of A Lifetime" and I would be proud and excited to participate in it. The cost of the trip is $7,000, but I can't raise it on my own - I need help. Any funds you could donate will be greatly appreciated.

$220
