Updated Expense Sheet and Thank You Note
Dear Shenika Support Team,
I am thrilled to inform you that my program tuition and fees are paid off! I wouldn't have made it this far without your generosity. Thank you for believing in me!
In my desire to further my education through the CGIS Arts in Paris study abroad program, I was faced with a financial burden that stood as a major obstacle in my path. Raising funds for a $15,000 program in the last 5 months was definitely a learning experience that made me stronger.
In the midst of a number of rejected proposals and disappointments in the project, I had to manage an 18 credit academic schedule along with my music studies, and fulfill my leadership responsibilities in a progressive campus organization. Despite all of the challenges, I was encouraged to be steadfast in my goals, and work diligently to accomplish them. I decided to turn my obstacles into stepping stones in my path to success.
With that being said, I truly appreciate all of your support! Beyond the generous contributions, your advice, prayers, and encouragement, continues to inspire me in this journey. I thank you for opening the door to a new experience in Paris, France - an experience I will cherish for the rest of my life.
