I have been invited to travel and study in Spain, France and Italy in the summer of 2014 with People to People. I will join other high school students from my area as we pursue academic success, gain true world awareness, and experience other cultures firsthand. I will be able to see the world and earn potential academic credit. I will gain confidence, maturity, and independence through unique life experiences designed to challenge me in safe and rewarding ways. I will make a difference in the lives of others through local service-learning projects. I will gain a global education. I have never been out of the country and I feel like this experience can really benefit me and my studies for the future.
