Figuring out you still don't know what you want to be when you grow up after four years of schooling and 22 years of life is scary. Let's go to Europe to do some exploring! More ...

There once a little girl who asked her family to immerse her in the British culture. “Drown me in the music, the fashion, the accents,” she said. So they did. They bought her a red pea coat (that she still wears to this day); brought her a Powell family crest from Britain that likely isn’t even from one single blood relative; let her wear the British flag as if it were her country of origin; turned her onto off-colored British television. These all contributed to a child’s idea of what it meant to be British.


This little girl’s New Year’s resolution was to talk like a Brit for a year and document her journey. This girl was ten or eleven years old. And like most adults with New Year’s resolutions, her “journey” died after only a few weeks.


Now at 22, this little girl wishes to be truly a part of the British culture by crossing the Atlantic and seeing why the sun never sets on the British empire.


For those that know this girl’s true journey, they know that not only was she a person whose life has been consumed by the magic of music, but consumed by the possibilities that lie in her future. One thing has not changed: she is still consumed by the art that is others’ musical miseries and triumphs. However, the future that she so clearly envisioned has now become blurred.


What once was a three year-old going on 30 is now a 22-year-old who has no idea what she wants to be when she grows up. After graduating from CSUN with a degree in Psychology and having had the opportunity to serve her peers in various public offices, the next logical step to advance herself and her career would be to go to graduate school. After months of internal debate and consultation to those closest to her, schooling is the last thing she needs. It’s really experience that she craves. And what better way to gain that than by exploring the world?


On this trip, she hopes to not only open her eyes to a whole new world, but to experience it through music and service. Amidst seeing some of the world’s greatest wonders, she’ll be attending music festivals and concerts as well as dedicating at least three hours at every major destination to serving the less fortunate.


Through your contributions, large or small, you’ll be helping a little girl in a big girl’s body discover what it really means to be a woman of the world.
