about my venture
My name is Kobe Goodwin-Pyers and I am a 7th grade student at Amherst Junior High School in Amherst, Ohio. I was recently nominated to be a student ambassador to Australia in the summer of 2013. With this nomination, I had to also provide three letters of recommendation and interview for this opportunity. Now that I have been selected, I need your help, please.
What it means to be a student ambassador
As a student ambassador, I will have the chance to travel with a group of about 40 students to Australia. While there, we will cruise the Sydney harbor, learn to play cricket, participate in traditional farming, work with aborigines, donate at local schools, visit a koala hospital and snorkel the Great Barrier Reef with a marine biologist. As you can see, this program will be not only adventurous, but educational as well.
How I plan to make this dream a reality
In addition to www.peerbackers.com, I am also having a spaghetti dinner fundraiser, babysitting, doing car washes, having a neighborhood garage sale, selling candy bars and speaking with various civic organizations. In addition, my mom and dad are organizing some other fundraisers to help me, including football squares and raffles.
