I am currently a junior at Cristo Rey Jesuit College Preparatory School of Houston in Texas. I love to keep myself very involved and busy, therefore, there are many things in which I take part in. I am part of my school soccer team and track and field. I am class president in Student Council and vice- president of the National Honor Society. I also am a Student Ambassador. In the future, my dreams are to go to FIDM, the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, to study fashion marketing and merchandising. I hope to become a buyer in the fashion industry in the future, because fashion and art have always been a great part of my life. To help broaden my knowledge of the career I want to pursue in, I also take part in a program called Parsons x Teen Vogue, which I will be taking throughout the year. So far, this program is helping me develop greater creative insightfulness and overall fashion knowledge that will greatly benefit me for the future.
The Fantastic Learning Opportunity I would love to take part in is the Creative Arts Studio in Prague, Czech Republic by CIEE. It is a program in which I will be spending 3 weeks in Prague learning different aspects of art such as mulitmedia, photography, and design and graphics. Since I look foward to a future in the fashion industry, and fashion is a work of art in its own, I believe this program will greatly be beneficial. It would be an amazing way for myself to broaden my knowledge and experience in the art industry. I also want to go for the inspiration of the location for future ideas when developing my fashion career in the future. Therefore, all in all, being a part of this amazing opportunity will positively impact my future in such an astonishing way.
I would be hugely grateful with the help of sponsoring my participation in the CIEE High School Study Abroad Program. After scholarships and financial aid, I am still in need to contribute $200 to the program and the cost of travel. Please consider the gift of $10, $25, or $50 to help me reach my goal in being able to take part of this opportunity of a lifetime.
