This week’s Abroad101 Student of the Week Honor is given to Emily Grace, a true humanitarian and a senior at the University of St. Francis. Emily is majoring in nursing with a minor in Spanish. Having already participated in several volunteer mission trips in high school and college, Emily is devoted to helping people from all walks of life. During high school she traveled to assist Hurricane Katrina victims and then again to help individuals living in the impoverished town of Hopkins Park, IL. During the summer of 2012, in college, Emily traveled to Sucre, Bolivia to work with individuals in the local daycare centers, hospitals, and orphanages. Then the following spring break, she went to Biloxi, Mississipi to once again assist hurricane victims.
Now Emily has been accepted to an International Service Learning Program, to provide nursing care to poverty-stricken populations in Belize. She will travel there this December and is looking for some assistance to help her get there. Learn more about this incredibly admirable study abroad trip here!
The Abroad101 Student of the Week initiative awards a student who created a Mission for a study abroad program on GoEnnounce with a donation to their fundraiser. Learn more about this partnership from Abroad101 CEO Mark Shay and GoEnnounce co-founder Melissa Davis here.
We’re making weekly donations to #studyabroad fundraisers! We hope you can help us assist these students in reaching their goals to make their travel dreams a reality. Visit here to help with this mission. To find out more about Emily’s study abroad program in Belize, visit here.
