my name is Kelsey Hudspeth and I am the 17 year old girl representing the class of 2009 and I am starting the process of choosing the path I will be taking after high school. Naturally, I am well on my way down the path towards a University, but I have decided to apply and be accepted into college, and then defer my acceptance a year to take a gap year. During this gap year, I plan to participate in a program called Up With People. Many of you are familiar with the program, but for those of you who are not, it is a global education program that allows people from all over the world the opportunity to impact the world. It is a traveling, dancing, singing, and community service group that is known around the world for inspirational musical performances. It always is a melting pot of students from multiple countries ranging in age from 18 to 26. (This most recent Cast is from 22 different countries).
I will be participating a year from now in the July 2009 cast, which means I have started the long journey of fundraising for the program. If any of you guys have any ideas on fundraising and making some extra money please let me know! Also any other donations would really be appreciated. you can email me if you are interested in donating or have any ideas at firstname.lastname@example.org
For more information on Up With People, feel free to take a look at their web site
thanks again for your donation and your ideas!!!
