Malaysia's Up With People Fund
Organized by: Malaysia De Rosa
My name is Malaysia De Rosa. I’m writing you today to let you know that I have recently been accepted to travel with the international leadership program called Up with People. Up with People is a non-profit organization that provides an opportunity to Travel with a purpose, Perform for thousands and Impact communities through volunteerism and cultural exchange. As most of you know, I live in Bermuda and currently work as a dance teacher/student at In Motion School of Dance.
I am confident that touring with the July 2017 cast will enrich my cultural experiences and provide me with valuable insights for my future career path. In this ever changing and diverse world, those best equipped to serve others are the ones who gain firsthand knowledge of its people. I have always had a passion for traveling and dancing, I welcome the opportunity to immerse myself in cultures outside my own.
I am thrilled that this opportunity provides a unique way to combine my desire to serve others, my passion to share hope with the world and my eagerness to learn new challenges. Throughout the tour I will be completing approximately 200 hours of volunteer service with 30+ organizations around the world. I know this will be a valuable step on my journey toward completing my desire to share my dance talent with the world.
I am seeking your financial assistance for my tour of Up with People. The program fee for my tour in July 2017 is $27,350 for the year. This is a significant but worthy investment in my future and includes a multi-continent tour, meals and nearly all of the costs for this opportunity. Although it is a large amount of money, I could never create nor afford such an experience if done on my own. I believe I can reach this goal- I know I was accepted into this program for a reason and am excited for this challenge. Any assistance you can provide will go directly toward my program costs and will be of great value in helping me achieve this opportunity of a life time. Every little bit helps!
