Hi! My name is Kanaisha Moore, I am 15 years old and I am currently a sophomore at Sharpstown High School. In addition to my studies, I am the drum major in the band and also the manager of the boys' school's sports teams. I also love to read about foreign history and educate myself with videos online. After graduating from high school I plan on going to Sam Houston State University and studying criminal justice. Eventually though, I strive to attend medical school and become a Forensic Medical Examiner. I have always been interested in crime, the science behind it, and I would love to get a better understanding of it.
One way to help me achieve my goals is by taking advantage of the CIEE Summer Study Abroad program. CIEE Summer Study Abroad is a month long program that offers students different categories of learning in different countries. I will be travelling to Berlin, Germany for a month and studying the German language and culture. I'll be staying with a host family and going throughout Berlin learning new things about everyday. I've loved learning and reading about German history so this opprotunity would give me a better understanding of everything I have learned so far. Since the CIEE Summer Study Abroad program offers 4 college credits it could also help me get into higher ranked colleges, especially wanting to study criminal justice and medicine. Learning another language could also contribute to a career in internatonal affairs as a Foreign Service Officer.
I need to raise enough money to cover a roundtrip flight to Berlin, Germany. I would appreciate it if you would donate as much as you can and share my link with others to help me to reach my goal!
