August update

Hey everyone, so we only have a few weeks left before the big day. So far we have raised $1,500 this leaves roughly $11,000 left to go. Coastal Studies for Girls has been and will continue to work on the paper work that will allow Surry to pay $4,500 towards the cost. I’m starting to go shopping  and checking items off  from my packing list. These next few weeks are going to be crazy busy! Thank you all again so much for the incredible generosity you have shown me! I hope your summer continues to be fantastic!

What this semester means to me

     This fall I will be spending 16 amazing weeks in Freeport, ME. Sixteen weeks at a semester school by the name of Coastal Studies for Girls. This school is designed to challenge, teach, and guide young women to their full potential. This semester is the greatest opportunity I have ever been given.

In the spring when I applied I was applying for the sake of trying something new, getting out-of-town, a new school. But slowly as the application process went on this whim or dream, became very real. when I was fully accepted it was by far the most validation I have ever been given for just being me. They opened up their arms and school and invited me to stay!

I am excited, confused, nervous, confident, and resolved. I have made  it my mission to raise the money needed to get to this semester. I would like you to know how much this means to me, how profoundly this would change my perspective of the world around me.

I am part of the new generation and what we do changes the world that we live in. This school will not only help me, but the tools it gives me will influence the way I interact and change society. This opportunity means the world to me, not just the school but the generosity and kindness of the people who have looked through the same lenses and see what I see; a fifteen year-old girl with a dream of changing the world who is about to take the first steps towards success.
