Study Abroad trip- Still trying to cover travel costs!

Study Abroad trip- Still trying to cover travel costs!

From Emily Vickers

I am going to study abroad this fall, Aug 25. The focus is on climate change and food, water, and energy politics. Going to San Francisco, Vietnam, Morocco, and Bolivia. Scholarships couldn't cover full costs!

I am roughly $5,000 away from meeting my tuition and program costs. I have been serving in AmeriCorps for the last year, which isn't very focused on making money ;) I have been working several side jobs cleaning houses, pet sitting/walking, and donating plasma. I am approved to go on the trip as is, however I need to finance plane tickets to and from the program, ensure I have travel funds, and I have a one week break in Morocco where I am responsible for my own housing, etc. I am also leaving my 2 loving dogs, Falcor and Jake the Dog, and my beautiful cats, SpiderCat, Mona, and Lisa, with my wonderful Mom at my apartment. I need to be able to cover rent, bills, and lots of food for them! It's going to work out somehow, but I'm getting nervous, so I thought I could reach out to friends and family who would like to support my travel and education. You all have already helped me so much in my life. I want to learn more about the world and how I am impacting it. I want to make positive changes. If you can make a donation to my study abroad trip budget, I will always be grateful to you and would love to personally share what my experience was like with you when I get back.
