Travel for a Cause
Organized by: Jow Chapman
Hello everyone! My name is Jowahdi from the Philippines. I was an exchange student before and was hosted in Orange, Massachusetts. I was hosted by an American family. My host father David Chapman is an retired milatary soldier, and my host mother Linda Chapman is an active volunteer in Orange Food County. Staying with my host community and family for a year is I considered as my most unforgettable and life changing experience. Being a member of different clubs in my host school I was exposed with different people by means of volunteering. During my exchange year I was awarded by one of the known youth volunteer organizations in the US as I've reached more than 500 hours of volunteering services for 11 months. My host mother just reached her golden age. As I badly want to surprise visit her on her birthday in November 2 I am facing a big financial problem for my visa application and airfare tickets from my country to the US. It's been 5 years now since the last time I saw her. I am a undergratudate student and also working with youth organizations. If anyone have questions please feel free to send me a private message. God bless everyone!
