My name is Paola, and I want to be able to make a difference in this world.

When I found out about Youth Empowered Action Camp, it was like an angel chorus moment for me. I felt in my heart that I absolutely had to go here. This camp specializes in preparing teenagers to take the steps needed to make change possible.

Ever since I was a little girl, people would tell me, "You'll be able to change things when you're an adult." But, I want to start now. I'm tired of seeing people ignore the problems this world is facing, and I want to take it upon myself to open their eyes and invite them to make change also.

It costs $975 to attend this camp. My parents have a lot of financial stress going on right now, and it makes me sad to have to ask them to put more things upon their shoulders. If I raise at least half of what the cost is (I'm going to be saving up money on my own, too), then my parents are going to be willing to pay the other half.

It would mean so much to me if you could donate and help me go to such a wonderful place where I will be able to meet people who share one common goal: To make change happen. Even if it's fifty cents, or thirty dollars. Every single penny counts and every single penny will mean the world to me.

If you aren't able to donate, that's totally okay. Just spread the word about my goal to other people. It really would mean so much to me.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. <3
