This trip. This girl. This opportunity.
This project's sole purpose is to give an incredible opportunity to a young woman to investigate science, medicine & expand her horizons in a way that her public school cannot. Etsub Tolossa is a hard-working, focused Ethiopian immigrant who wants to become a cardiologist. Better yet- her faith will compel her to serve all with her talents and skills. The National Youth Leadership Forum offers life changing programs:Program Link (check -it out!) that can help Etsub reach her goals by the experience itself and as a impactful entry on college applications to replace courses unavailable to her. EVERY DONATION HELPS! WE'VE MADE OUR FIRST PAYMENT WITH THE $700 WE'VE RAISED SO FAR!!! WE ONLY NEED 2200!!!
Here's the financials...
Tuition Cost: 2995
(this includes room/board, meals, curriculum& course materials, lectures& simulations, site visits)
Flight/Airport Shuttle: **WE WILL BE LOWERING OUR GOAL AS SHE'S NOW ATTENDING THE SAME CAMP AT UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND, CP & WE CAN DRIVE!!!**
Estimated as of 3.31: 375
(she would be flying out of Harrisburg International Airport into Logan International in Boston then taking a shuttle to the College and the opposite to return!)
Spending Money: 230 (less any higher transportation costs)
(for a group picture, to add to her data/text plan so she can fully experience all & still contact home daily & for program excursions)
All we can give is GRATITUDE and show you how impacted she is by going...
I've created a website where Etsub will update during her adventure and post reflections...http://etsubsadventure.weebly.com/
All those who interact with Etsub say: She's worth your support!
This campaign is led by Etsub's teachers (Jessica Henry is leading the charge) who believe that she is worth ALL of our efforts. We are in a Title I district so course offerings and materials are limited. We want Etsub to be best prepared for undergraduate school and see the possibilities before her-her parents labored to get their family to the United States for better opportunities and now its OUR job to help her achieve her goals!
