McKendra Torrey


My name is McKendra Torrey, and I am a 5th-grade student at Frontier Elementary in Boise Idaho. I was recently interviewed and accepted to participate as a member of the People to People Student Ambassador Program to Australia this summer. The program promotes international understanding while building leadership skills among America’s youth. The experience includes meetings with government officials, interaction with other students my age, educational activities, and home stays with host families.

People to People Student Ambassadors are carefully interviewed and evaluated before their acceptance, and I am honored to have been selected. Personally, I am looking forward to broadening my perspectives of the world and gaining a better understanding of Australian history. As an Ambassador, I can also earn high school credit because of the many educational elements in my program.

I am currently seeking financial sponsors to help me with tuition, and hope I can count on your support. In case you haven’t heard of People to People, please allow me to share some history with you. President Dwight D. Eisenhower founded the organization in 1956. He believed that if people from different cultures could come together in peace and friendship, so eventually would countries.

Since its founding, People to People has launched many international programs, including Sister
Cities and Project HOPE. The program tuition is $6,400.00 which includes all transportation, accommodations, meals, and educational activities. Is it possible for you to assist me by making a contribution? Any amount would be appreciated. I plan to give a speech and share my photographs, and experiences with contributors upon my return in June of 2011.

My program tuition is payable in increments up until I leave in July. Please feel free to contact me at if you need more information. Your generous contribution would enable me to share in this wonderful opportunity. Thank you in advance for your consideration and support.
