As many of you know, I was born in Boston, MA in 2000. I l lived in Minnesota when I was 7 and then went back to England after a while. It has ALWAYS been my dream to go back and visit America again, and now I have the chance. As a student, I obviously don‘t have much money. I was given an opportunity to do some work experience in April 2018 in Colorado and I really REALLY would love to take it, as not only would it look good on my CV and help me in the future, but I have been wanting to go back out there for almost 10 years now! I have many friends in Colorado, all in the area where i’ll be staying. As good as that is, I can’t just rely on them to give my a place to stay and transportation for the 2 weeks i’m hoping to go for...meaning that I will have to get a room in a hotel or motel etc. and also money for food, taxi’s, and most importantly, the flights to get out there...I will be saving from now on and spending the minimum amount of money over the next few months. The only problem is, I work part-time, I have college, a car to pay off, including insurance, petrol and need to fix some broken parts of my car before its seriously damaged and even more expensive to repair. Which is why I need a little bit of help...well...a lot of help. I know this is VERY weird and I shouldn’t really be asking for money from people, however over the next few months, I will be willing to help others out, for example, babysitting, dog walking, cleaning, ironing, helping around the house, helping with lifts, grocery shopping etc. and all you would need to do it help ME and donate some money to this page and help me get to colorado! You can email me at email@example.com or text me on 07484740406. Anything will be much appreciated and will help me a lot! Thank you x
