Promoting Cultural And Worldly Awareness One Cent At A Time
Organized by: Bailey Hudson
Since I was young, a dream of mine has been to travel the world and immerse myself in other cultures and languages, and I know I share this dream with many of my peers. However, this dream has never been closer until my school was gifted money through CIEE's study abroad program (link below), which allows one to choose a place to study out of a myriad of countries and cities; whether for culture and language, or specific fields such as human rights and environmental policy, or even digital filmmaking and documentary.
This money is used for certain costs, but for students like me, initial fees, the thousands of dollars needed for airfare, and having enough money to take overseas for other expenses is an issue, and a large one in the grand scheme of things. Hopefully, by raising money in this way I will be able to help other students as well as myself take that initial step into being able to learn about and understand problems outside of our own country as well as the culture of others around the world.
