Hi everyone! My name is Karishma and I am an undergraduate student at Loyola University Chicago majoring in Anthropology, double minoring in Biology and Spanish while on the pre-medicine track.This fall semester, I have been given an incredible opportunity to study abroad in Rome at Loyola University Chicago’s John Felice Rome Center. With a hefty coarse load to complete by graduation, studying abroad is a pretty big compromise I am making both, academically and financially.
From this trip, I not only want to come back with a few souvenirs and pictures, but I hope to come back from Rome as a changed and matured person. Living in a foreign country, learning a new language and coming out of my comfort zone is only a small scale of what I expect to accomplish. I believe that this trip will help me grow personally and professionally and to ultimately unlock my greater potential to complete my undergraduate studies with a fresh start.
While this trip will indubitably be the most amazing, and life changing experience thus far, it also comes with the pressures of how to pay for it. This money fund-raised will go towards paying off some of my tuition fees while abroad. And with that I am asking you, for any possible contribution you can make to help alleviate some of stresses from planning for this trip. Thank you so much for your valuable time and your generous donation.
