Packets!

I received some packets from AFS in the mail today! That's all. Lol.
It just says "The AFS Guide for Participants"

nuovi amici

So a few weeks ago someone on Facebook created a page "AFS Italy 2012-2013" or something along those lines. I have been talking to a lot of new people and I can't wait for all of us to meet at orientation in New York and Rome! I have even been skyping with them. I already love you guys and we're going to have the best experience. (: On another note, AFS sent me an email today giving me a scholarship for almost 500 dollars! Thank you AFS! So now I have quite a bit of money raised and saved up. (But still not all of it, so if anyone can donate that would be awesome!)

Ciao,

Nicole

Fundraising

First of all THANK YOU SIERRA FOR DONATING. And second of all, if anyone is reading this, I have less than one month before I have to make a 1,500 dollar installment and less than 2 months before the rest of the money is due. Fundraising is not that easy, so if anyone reading this could donate even a small amount of money I would greatly appreciate it! I applied for a scholarship in January that was worth 2,000 dollars and I REALLY needed it and didn't get it. I'm not going to lie, I was pretty angry and bitter because I spent a lot of time working on my essay for that scholarship and I really thought I would get it. I guess that just means I have to work harder to get the money... My parents will let me repay them if they have to pay for the majority of the tuition, but there is still less than 6 months before I leave, and I really need to do more fundraising.

Ciao,

Nicole
