THE STORY:

Hi there, My name is Devante Swain, a.k.a Baby Swain. I'm 20 years old from the East side of Denver, Colorado. I was just recently accepted into a international education program that travels around the world with 100 college age students for 6 months. The program is called Up with People, a program seeking to inspire young people to make a difference in the world! The Up With People Mission: Up with People is a global education organization which aims to bring the world together through service and music. The unique combination of international travel, service learning, leadership development and performing arts offers students an unparalleled experience and a pathway to make a difference in the world, one community at a time. I'll be traveling from August to December of 2016, and for 6 months of travel, experiences, performing, and giving back, tuition cost is $17,400 dollars. I was lucky enough to receive a $10,000 scholarship this past week and now only have to raise $7,400. I will need to raise this money before July 15th. So less than a month away! I've already given my $500 non refundable deposit because I believe in miracles! Thank you all so much for the help and support and hope we can make this dream come true, for the chance to see the world for the first time. If you have any questions please feel free to email; Eric Anderson - Vice President of Up with People Admissions - eanderson@upwithpeople.org or my mentor BC Serna bcsernafilm@gmail.com
