Hi. I’m Laura. I have a amazing opportunity to serve as a Student Ambassador with People to People, and travel this winter with other students from USA to France and England. People to People's mission is to bridge cultural and political borders through education and exchange, making the world a better place for future generations and I would like to be a part of that. I was accepted after applying, having 3 letters of reference (I had 2 teachers and a family friend do this for me!) and go through an interview!!! I attend almost monthy trainings, study the history, culture, and language of France and England. People to People makes you get a 100% on all their quizzes (I sometimes have to retake them!!!) We have done a service project here in Chicago and will be doing one on our trip too! I have always wanted to travel overseas and am very excited to travel and learn about other cultures. I have to raise the entire amount for this trip and I'm more than half way having already earned $3300. I have done babysitting, cell phone recycling, youth nights, a huge book sale and received donations from nice people! Thank you very much!
