Dear Family and Friends,
If you didn’t know I am now in 11th grade at Hilltop High school. I have always done well in school keeping my grades at A & B level. Taking pride in my academics I have felt the need to expand beyond the boundaries of school for learning. When my history teacher presented the annual Europe Trip to us students, I became ecstatic thinking about traveling to the one place on earth I have dreamed of going since I can remember. My parents agreed it would be the prime time for me to take advantage of this opportunity as a “right of passage” feeling a sense of adult freedom before it comes with all the responsibilities of college and a job. After reviewing the cost of $3,500, we all knew it would take a lot of work to afford going. I have been fundraising money as much as I can, from selling candy at school, selling tie-die shirts, collecting aluminum cans, and more. I’m asking for help from friends and family to donate what you can to make my dream happen. It would mean so much to me and my family relieving some of the financial burden this trip would bring. It is worth every cent to me. We would be traveling during Spring break of 2013. Coming up soon! Day 1 taking a plane overnight to Italy! Day 2-4 spending it abroad in Rome seeing the Vatican, Sistine chapel, the Colosseum, and experiencing all the culture: from food, architecture, the people, and especially THE ART! Day 5 taking the night train in Florence to the beautiful Paris. Spending all of Day 6-7 seeing all that Paris has to offer, including the Eiffel tower, the Louvre, and the Notre Dame cathedral. With your help I could get there. Thank you for reading and supporting me.
With Love,
Elena Olmedo
