To Whom It May Concern:

People to People is a for profit organization that offers adolescents the chance to travel while getting a head start on their college education. I, Emili Cabrera, am a 13 year old and have been nominated to participate in their European Odyssey tour as a student ambassador of the United States. After attending an orientation, I felt both excited and overwhelmed. My excitement stemmed from the vast amount of information and the realization that this journey is the opportunity of a lifetime. The overwhelming part is the cost associated with the trip and the fact that I’m a daughter of a low income single parent household. However, obstacles should simply be viewed as something to overcome and immediately prompts me into action.

People to People offers tweens, teens, and young adults an opportunity to travel across seven continents through their junior high and high school years as student ambassadors of the United States. Each of the forty students selected to attend an excursion must first be nominated, complete an application, and pass the interview process. Once chosen, the students will learn leadership skills, the culture, and history up close and hands on. At the journey’s end these young adults will receive a certificate of completion which can be used towards college credits at six of the eight Ivy League schools and many more.

The orientation demonstrated ordinary children doing extraordinary things. One example is that our generation is more willing to volunteer than ever before. Another example is we’re taking a stand and making a change by creating an awareness of global issues, informing our nation’s leaders, and doing something about it. Examples of these are when student ambassadors organized the following events: donating shoes to third world countries, organizing supplies for our soldiers in Afghanistan, and starting an organization that promotes random acts of kindness reaching people across the globe. Each student ambassador as an individual impacted the world and lit a fire within me to do something extraordinary.

As previously mentioned, there are cost associated with each tour ranging between six and ten thousand dollars. People to People does offer partial scholarships, however, for the most part you’re responsible to cover the expense. The Monday immediately proceeding the Saturday orientation I set out via foot on bus seeking sponsors and donations. Many were willing to help with small items and door prizes, but with little to no incentive to offer their company I was forced to find an alternative to raise the funds. The idea to host a banquet was a direct result to the lack of sponsorship. Soon after I created an online ad for local talent and quickly received positive responses. Realizing the limitless possibilities and funds this could raise encouraged me to help others in the same or similar situations and start an organization called Kids Can.

Kids Can is designed to promote the importance of education, volunteering in your community, leadership skills, and remind kids that they can do anything they set their mind to regardless of their circumstance. I would like to take part in what kids can and decide what to do in making our world a better place and with your help I’m confident I know this thirteen year old KID CAN.
