Hello! My name is Jess, I'm 19, and looking to start a new chapter of my life by studying abroad in Canada. I'm currently working full time in retail and trying desperately to fulfill a life long dream of moving to Canada and going to school. 

My biggest help and driving force to do this is definitely my best friend, Whit. Whit is a Canadian citizen who has not only been here for me step by step, but they have also been there to tell me we will make this happen together. They continuously push me to go for this goal and I would not have even gotten this far without them. Getting to Canada would not only make my school dream come true, but also my dream of finally getting to meet Whit. 

I would do anything to reach my goal of getting to Canada. The only thing standing in the way is the 10,000 dollars I need to have before I can even think of starting classes. To me that number is so outrageously high that I set the goal to a manageable level of $2,500. 

The donations I receive will go to tuition only. Not the gas to get to Canada, or anything else. My family has had money to support smaller endeavors, but this proves to be too high of a dollar amount to be realistic. The contributions you guys make will not go unnoticed. We have several perks listed that have no numerical value, but definitely are made and personalized for you with love. From drawings to tumblr promotions, we will do whatever we can to show our gratitude. 

If you're unable to donate money, that's totally fine! Even just getting this passed around means absolutely everything to me! Taking your time to read this or watch my video was enough for me! No words or perks could ever express my gratitude for the donations.

When I graduated highschool, I went in to community college right away and the reason I failed was because I had no long term goals. Becoming a Canadian citizen is my long term goal now; and it is one I will fight to the teeth and the last penny to achieve. With the money that I recieve in this campaign, every cent will be used to get me to that end goal and my heart will be forever filled with gratitude. 

My bestfriend Whit has a video on their YouTube channel, here's the link if you'd like to see it!
