Currently, I am a junior at Wheatley high school in Houston. I'm a member of my school's gaming club and the vise president of the FLO fellows. My hobbies include reading and playing video games. After high school, I want to go to Lamar University for pre-veterinary studies. After I finish my studies I plan on becoming a veterinarian. I love animals and it's very important to me to help them and this is how I can do that. My favorite class is AP English because I get the chance to read a lot of interesting books and my GPA is currently a 3.8.
Recently I have gotten the incredible opportunity of traveling to Berlin, Germany this summer with the CIEE summer abroad program. With this program, I will be able to experience a different culture and learn a new language. I will be staying with a host family and going to shops and museums in the afternoons to assimilate with the culture. I believe this program will allow me to be able to communicate with more people. This will also be a chance for me to meet people that I can develop meaningful relationships with. I'm hoping this program will help me expand my intercultural awareness so I can meet new people and learn another language.
I would appreciate any help I can get to sponsor my participation in the CIEE highschool summer abroad program. I did receive a scholarship towards my tuition but I still need to raise money for traveling. Any amount that you can donate can help me make this opportunity possible.
