Our thanks to everyone who has contributed so far, Kaitlin is so excited about this upcoming trip! We still have a way to go, but every donation See More

THE STORY:

Kaitlin has been invited to participate in the "2017 Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit - Envision Impact Series" from January 18- 22, 2017 in Washington, DC. The Presidential Inauguration Leadership Summit is specifically designed to empower next generation leaders as they continue on their journey toward building a better future. At the Summit, Kaitlin will strengthen her leadership skills, meet influencers, and collaborate with other motivated Summit Scholars to solve real-world problems while witnessing history in Washington, DC. The Summit, which only happens every four years, also offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be inspired by world-renowned speakers, celebrate the inauguration, and to engage, participate, and be heard. Kaitlin will have an opportunity to hear from Malala Yousafzai via satellite and her father Ziaduin Yousafzi will be there to facilitate, along with other speakers from major corporations, government, and sports. Discovery Education has also partnered with this program as well as the Smithsonian. The program is $4000,00 but there is also travel, food and miscellaneous expenses incurred. Kaitlin has registered and we are working towards getting the money; but we are asking for help. During the last two and half years much of our energy and monies have gone towards her brother Zach and his ongoing medical issues stemming from his cerebral accident in December 2013 and subsequent hospitalizations. During this time Kaitlin has excelled in her studies and maintained high honor roll all three years of middle school while participating in student council, orchestra (violin), steel pan drums, and yearbook. She is also a member of Bal-On-Sen Triangle #65 and Chapter Sweetheart for Trinity Chapter, Order of DeMolay - she devotes her time to both of these programs as well as participating in Relay For Life over the years. We have tried hard to maintain as "normal" a schedule for her while taking care of her brother and have encouraged her to seek out different opportunities to learn and grow. This Summit is one of those opportunities. Whatever you can give will be greatly appreciated, and if you can't donate at this time - please offer a prayer for her. Stephanie and Ed (Kaitlin's proud parents)
