Please consider helping me financially as I head back to where I left a piece of my heart three years ago and see how I can help facilitate a partnership that will change people's lives, and Lord willing, change the world! :)
I specifically remember learning about China in fourth grade. I remember thinking how amazing it would be to see the Great Wall, but I never would. I remember thinking "Wow! It must be impossible to learn to speak Chinese unless you're born there!"
Then, when I was about to start my sophomore year of High School, my parents asked me how I would feel about hosting an exchange student from China. I was super excited about it and ended up making a great friend and "sister" that year.
As a freshman at Arizona State University, I wanted to go on a trip over the summer. My first choice was to do an internship at Disney World, but I missed the deadline to apply, so I ended up going to China for 6 weeks with several of my friends.
A year later, I had the opportunity to go back for a full school year and study with some of my best friends. I was able to make some great friends, experience the culture and grow tremendously in my personal life.
I've been back in the U.S. for almost three years now, and I miss China every day! I miss my friends, the food, and the culture. I've considered going back full time, but logistically have not been able to. I now have the opportunity to go back for a short Vision Trip with an organization called English Language Institute - China. I will be a part of a team that is looking to partner with ELIC and send people from Arizona to teach English in China. Although I can't go right now, I'll be able to help send others.
I will be leaving on May 9th and spending 8 days there, getting to know the organization, seeing teachers in action, and getting reacquainted with the culture and language. I am still about $1000 short of my financial support and that's where you come in! Please consider helping me financially as I head back to where I left a piece of my heart three years ago and see how I can help facilitate a partnership that will change people's lives, and Lord willing, change the world! :)
