The family and friends of Dasia Legette are uniting to raise money to help her attend her student ambassador trip in the summer of 2011.

I am Dasia Legette and I have been selected to be a Student Ambassador in 2011 on a People 2 People educational travel adventure to Australia. I am asking all of my friends, and family members to support me by making a donation towards my trip through this fundraiser.

Participating in this People 2 People program will prepare me for success.

People to People prepares students and professionals for success in a globalized world through international travel and positive, life-changing educational experiences. Our programs help young people build self confidence, establish lasting friendships, and gain greater understanding of people and cultures around the world.

This trip will be a great opportunity and a once in a lifetime experience for me.

As the educational travel leader, People to People Ambassador Programs offers unparalleled access to amazing people and places around the world, including exclusive activities, insider tours of historic sites, international home stays, dedicated program leaders, and fascinating, knowledgeable guides.
