BENEFITING: SPECIAL SPACES
I have never traveled outside of the United States and I feel college is the best time to experience new places on your own. I am very rooted in my southern Louisiana culture and desire to test my ability to adapt to a new culture. I want to do so in a country less fortunate than the United States to adopt a sense of appreciation and gratitude for what I currently have. Next summer, I have been given the opportunity to study abroad in San Jose and receive college credit for doing so. The opportunity makes me very excited but nervous as well because I have no understanding of how people function or what daily life entails outside of the southern Louisiana area which I see. However, because of this it is my desire to educate myself and broaden my horizon on life in other places. The best way to do so is to immerse myself in the culture and allow it to mold me into a more versatile individual. I feel as people we should be able to relate to all and not to just those who are synonymous in background and heritage. The only thing stopping my plan from becoming reality is financing. I would really love to complete my education and do so in a country that is a new home to me. Please help me by donating to my goal of overcoming fear of new places! Anything will help.Thanks for your time and God bless.
