All About My People to People European Trip

If you are curious about what People to People is, it is a program that takes 6th grade and up to travel the world. And I am one of the few kids. I will be ting Paris and the Louvre, Versailles, and to London and see London Eye and Parliament.

The Scholarship

   One way I was planning on making the 5 grand towards my trip, was by entering a contest. For the contest I had to write an essay about an achievement. So I wrote about climbing Beacon Rock. I entered it in the contest in December. And on January 11, I was in the car with my dad on the way to school, my dad got a call from my mom saying that People to People called her, and that I won the contest! I won $1000.00! So a grand is out of my way. Now I need $4000. Yea!

  1. Good job Rebekah! I'm so proud of you. This trip is going to be an amazing experience that you will always remember. People to People is a great program, also. I have volunteered for them on trips to Washington DC. I can't wait to hear about the rest of your preparation and your trip!
