Crofton House student Katie Lo has been selected from hundreds of applicants across the country as a Top 20 Finalist for S-Trip!’s The Amazing Scholarship. She now has until Sunday, June 16 to share why travel is so important to her education and rally Vancouver’s support for a chance to win the grand prize – which includes tuition, books for a year, a paid internship and a trip to paradise with three friends.
After building a school in Kenya and teaching English in Prague, Katie knew that she wanted travel to be a part of her education and career. If she wins the scholarship dollars will go towards her upcoming enrollment in the Tourism Management Program at the University of Guelph.
Where is paradise for Katie? “There would be absolutely no better place than the Galapagos Islands for me. It is the place where Darwin created his theory of evolution. The vast number of species in the archipelago makes it completely unique, and there is simply no other place in the world like that.”
Katie needs our support to win this competition. Click here to show your love and help get her to the Galapagos! http://theamazingtravelscholarship.tumblr.com/tagged/KatieLo
