Hi Ellen!
My name is Sindie Dorcilien, I am 22 yrs old and a senior Speech Communication and Community Health major at SUNY Potsdam. First i just wanna say how much i love you and how you inspire others to be themselves and be courageous in all that they do. my reason for writing to you today is because i have been accepted into a volunteer abroad program in Tanzania that begins in January. While volunteering abroad, i will be working with a small tribe in the town of Arusha named the Massai tribe. my work will consist of HIV/AIDS prevention education of young women, men, and girls of this tribe. this is an amazing opportunity for me because i will be doing what i have dedicated my life to do: Serving the global community.Through this experience, I intend to be a part of something much greater than myself, step outside of my comfort zone, and become a tool for change. Upon returning to the SUNY Potsdam campus, I will be working with faculty members within the Community Health department to set up a seminar detailing my study abroad experience and the things that I have learned about the culture, the health and nutrition needs of the people and how Non-governmental organizations aide in meeting the needs of the people. i really want to be apart of this amazing experience but the only thing keeping me from my dream of self-less service is the cost of a plane ticket to Tanzania. i am currently in my last year of school, and am applying to graduate schools in the fall to continue my education in public health and policy. Ellen, can you please help me get to Tanzania?
