Help Send Me To London

Hello Everybody,My name is Samantha Smylie, I'm a 3rd year History major at the college. In Spring 2016, I will (hopefully) be heading to London! If I get the chance to go, I will be studying the History of London, National identities, and material culture in London museums. As a low-income student, and a few family emergencies, it has been extremely hard for my family to send me to school for the fall semester (paying tuition and hopefully we can afford some of my books) and help me save money for my trip. I really want to go to London, I don't know if I will ever have another chance to do something like this. As a first-generation student, I would be the first person in my family to go abroad and study in London. I just need help.I started a gofundme to help give me a head-start on saving. If you can donate any little money to me that would be very helpful. However, if you can't, please share on facebook and send me links to scholarships. I know that relying on a fundraiser isn't the "smartest" thing to do, So I'm also searching for scholarships and working at school. Here is the link to my GoFundMe page:,Sammie
