Newspaper Article


I was in the newspaper this last Friday!  I'll make sure to upload the article in a couple days.  Hopefully that will help get some sponsors! 
I found a new website to help me get scholarships and so far things are going pretty good.  Nothing much other than that this week.  Hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving!

Until next time,

Media Coverage

AFS sent an email saying they got my application, but they won't review it until January.  I am glad they recieved it but also a little bummed that they won't be looking at it until January.  I had an on-the-phone interview today with the local newspaper!  I also plan on contacting the local fairgrounds today which I have been putting off for some unknown reason.  I am also still working on scholarships.

Happy Thanksgiving (if anybody actually ever reads this)!

Making Progress

I have been very busy this week.  I made some phone calls and crossed a couple fundraising ideas off the list.  Unfortunately, some of them didn't work out.  The local newspaper is willing to write an article about my experience to try and get sponsors!!!  I am also contacting the local fairgrounds to try and do a mega clean up (taken from the AFS Fundraising website).  Yesterday I held signs for a Garden Club sale in which I got a nice donation and this next weekend I am doing another BBQ!  Other than that I've just been continuing to work on essays.  So I've been pretty busy.

Until next time,

Since my last post my computer broke...  So I've been using my moms and siblings.  Anyway, I am finally uploading the full application today!!!  I am so excited!  Scholarships are coming well; they seem like the only way I'll be able to go.  Hopefully I'll get some...

I don't know if anybody reads this but thats all for this update!

Another update

Many things have happened since my last update.  The BBQ was very successful, in fact, it went so well I am going to be doing another one in December!  I have also started working on scholarships since my last post.  Lastly, the AFS papers are almost all done and uploaded.  Hopefully everything will be uploaded by tomorrow.

That's all for now!
