Greetings my family, friends and other potential sponsors. I am Deborwah Faulk a third year undergraduate student studying Sociology and French at Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia. This academic year in lieu of my studies at Spelman, I have elected to participate in two study abroad experiences in France (Europe) and Cameroon (Africa). It has always been a goal and ambition of mine to study abroad. I am thus extremely grateful to have been provided these opportunities. Contrary to what one might initially imagine, my desires to study abroad expands far beyond the surface rewards of travel and exploration in another country. These opportunities abroad rather serve as a contributing factor to the fulfillment of my passion for philanthropy. My ultimate pursuit in life is to establish an international nonprofit organization, the DEBFoundation, to study, seek, share, and reduce global inequalities in the social, political, environmental and educational domains. My experiences abroad therefore will provide preliminary research regarding the needs for social change and reform around the world. I thus, endeavor to utilize my experiences and observations gathered in each respective country along with previous knowledge from the United States to successfully establish and meet the goals of the DEBFoundation. Studying abroad will unquestionably aid me as student and global citizen; however my true desire is to mature in knowledge for the success of others. It is therefore with that thought in mind that I ask those who are able, to assist me financially with a piece of a greater puzzle. Know that by helping me you are helping many more. I thank you in advance for your contribution, your thoughts and prayers. Donations will be utilized towards the purchase of a plane ticket to Cameroon, vaccinations, visa and other study abroad related items. Please feel free to contact me via email at dfaulk@scmail.spelman.edu and to read my blog for pictures and short essays/blog entries at shesinternationelle.tumblr.com
