I am Edward Kvale. As of right now I am 13 years old. I currently attend Mickey Leland College Prepatory Acedemy and in the seventh grade. I am the oldest of a family of six where I am the only male child. I spend most of my free time either reading or playing video games. My favorite class is Science and my favorite elective class is Journalism. I would like to attend Rice University in Houston, Texas. I want to attend Rice for their technology based classes because I want to go into the technology field.
I plan to go to the Oxbridge Academic Program UCLA in July because I think it’ll be an interesting and educational experience. I have been nervous before about an overnight experience and been pleasantly surprised the next couple of days. I am choosing the Augmented Reality and Game Design course as my Major Course because I am really interested in these subjects and I wish to use the skills I will learn in the classes and use them at my home. I will use my new skills to create games that I can play and share.
I know it may not seem like much, but with your financial resources I will be able to take part in the Oxbridge UCLA program of July 2018. I will in part return the favor in the future with part of the technology skills I will learn this summer. I have received a scholarship that roughly covers 75% of the cost for Oxbridge. While grateful for the scholarship, it unfortunately does not cover the remaining $1,575 for the program, transportation cost to and from Los Angeles and Houston, nor lunch meals for the three week program. Your financial support in the amounts of $10, $20, or $50 will allow me to continue my educational path in this fantastic learning opportunity. If you decide to donate, you have my appreciation.
