The Learning Moment Fund
Organized by: Ashley Dickey
My name is Ashley, I am 14 years old and I live in Phoenix, Arizona. I am currently an 8th grade student at St. Jerome’s Catholic school. I am attending St. Jerome’s school on scholarship from the Catholic Church and with support from my mother. My class will be taking a trip to Washington, D.C. in Spring 2015. This trip is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to explore our nation’s most important historical sites. I have never had the opportunity to travel to the east coast before. I cannot wait to see the spot where Martin Luther king Jr. delivered his speech and walk in the footsteps of our great leaders on Capitol Hill. These learning moments and experiences will be memories that I will have for years to come! The money that I hope to raise will be used to help my mother pay for all expenses for the trip. This includes plane ticket, hotel, and admission to museums.
