My 13 year old niece, Desiree, has been accepted to take a summer trip (Marine Biology Lab) with her school. She is one of 10 chosen out of 200+ seventh and eighth grade students. She is only one of two seventh graders. I am beyond proud of my niece. Desiree has been a straight A student throughout school, has always taken advanced classes, and even received a presidential award for all of her school and life efforts. She is a giving and respectful thirteen years old, which would do anything to go on this trip.
This school trip is going to be in
Florida. They will get to do a lot of activities with different sorts of
marine biology. They will actually be staying on a large boat for a
couple of the days, I would have loved that as a kid. The trip will be seven days. This is a trip that I
know she will love and learn from. Desiree has shown a real interested
in marine biology since she started school, and even before.
is an opportunity of a lifetime for my niece and I want to try to give
her a chance to experience things that normally she would never be able
to. The cost of the trip totaled $1600 and she has raised a little more
than $1100 on her own. We have less than a month to raise the rest and I
know every little bit matters. This is only one of my efforts to raise
Desiree has been through a lot this year; dad caught
cheating, divorce of parents after 20 years, and a big move from Texas
to Colorado. She is not my child, but I want to give her the world. She
has worked so hard to be where she is, and for her to continue to do so
well in school with everything going on, I am so proud of her. All of my online earnings for this month will go directly to the trip. Thank you all for looking and helping in any way.
