Hey Everyone!

I am currently a third year Communications major, and Brazil has always been a place that I dreamed to go too. Yes the beautiful beaches, breath taking nature, and the lively culture they may have maybe amazing but I think there is much more in Brazil to offer. 

Over five years ago when i was in Grade 10 in high school, I was looking at the school billboard. Here you would find volunteer, projects, and community announcements. That day one program caught my eye, a poster called "Go Summer Projects". So like any other curious high school student I started to look up on Google. 

 They offered a project with youth where you not only help orphanes but study the common issues that children are facing in Brazil (Ex: Parents leaving their children).

I love volunteering and I always prosper to give as much as I can to my community. I have:

- Homeless shelter

- Volunteered for Pearls for Girls

- Performed for CASCO to fundraise money for Cheo

- Made Christmas cards for soilders in Afganistan 

- Helped out with a clothes drive

- Played and Refree for HOPE Volleyball

- Contributed to the Greek Pagent to fundraise money for Heart and Stroke Foundation

- Taught a dance class after school program for elementary children

Those are just some of the very few things that I have done for volunteering, and I enjoyed every single one of them.

So even though that oppourtunity to go to Brazil to volunteer would be amazing something inside of me said to wait. Wait until I was old enough to understand the life changing expirences that I wanted to expirence and be part of. 

Now I am in my third year of university and I think that I am more then ready. I am ready to learn more about my self, this properous country and the social issues that people do not tend to see behind closed doors. I am planning to study abroad in Brazil, and volunteer for 6 months. I will be learning intensive portugese and studying cultural Brazilian courses. All these classes are working towards my degree as electives whcih works out perfectly. I would like to raise $11,000. This will cover most of my program. 

Here is the link for the program down bellow:

I will be working two jobs as soon as the semester is done, and I am contemplating on getting and third on if possible.

If you could help me fundraise for a life changing, rewarding expirence I would greatly apprecieate it

Sincerely,

Shika Fevrier-President
