Send Erica Under the Sea

Erica is the niece of my good friend, Misty, who has helped me and supported me dozens of times over the years. I am repaying her that kindness and helping to spread the word about Erica's project and scholarship efforts!

Thanks for taking the time to consider contributing to my cause. Please allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Erica. I am a junior at Miamisburg High School. I have a passion for marine biology. In addition, I enjoy working with high-risk youth. I am having difficulty deciding which field I should study in college.
I am currently taking a class called Environmental Resource Management Technology. This class will help me earn 13 college credits while I'm still in high school. At the end of the summer, the class will be taking a trip to Florida so we can become certified in SCUBA diving and work on a research project before and during the trip. In addition to this, we will be working with conservationists to plant coral.
If I am able to raise the funds to take this trip, I will be able to pursue marine biology in college, start off my "official" college career ahead of the game, and receive a $3,000 scholarship.

What I Need & What You Get
What the funds raised will go for:
The first $600 – This is the exact cost of the trip, per Miamisburg High School.
The other $150 – to cover any fees which will be incurred through Indiegogo.
If I don’t reach my funding goal, the money you have so generously donated will go to offsetting the cost for me and my family.

The Impact
In my current financial situation, my mom and I will never be able to afford this trip ourselves. Throughout my life and school career, I have had to pass up many opportunities to go places and do things because my family simply couldn’t afford the additional cost. This trip isn’t just sending me to Florida for a week; this trip is the pathway to a solid career. This is a chance for me to gain experience and knowledge I wouldn’t be able to get any other way. Your investment is more than just helping me SCBUA dive or see the Atlantic Ocean. It would be an investment in my future.

Other Ways You Can Help
If you don’t have the ability to give money to my cause, I would ask for you to post this on your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc. Any exposure I could gain, I would appreciate.
