I am rasing money so i can attend the HOBY World Leadership Congress in Chicago! Thank you so much for your support!

Dear Family & Friends,

Earlier this year, I was honored to be chosen to represent Melbourne High School to at the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership (HOBY) Conference at Eckerd College. HOBY is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been serving the youth of America for over 54 years by offering exceptional leadership development programs for high school students.

I attended the 3-day HOBY leadership conference June 15-17, and found it to be a life-changing experience! HOBY taught me how to lead others, and ways that I can inspire people to do things to make this world a better place

At the end of the HOBY Mid-FL seminar, I was chosen among a group of 160 students to have the opportunity to attend the HOBY International World Leadership Congress program in July on the campus of Loyola University in Chicago!

This leadership program is a week long experience that brings together over 400 students from across the United States and around the globe. Because HOBY has a limited amount of scholarships available, the cost of the trip is my responsibility.

This is why I am asking for your help. I will have the opportunity to go through intense leadership training, emotional group reflections, festive and fun activities, and take part in community projects to help people in need while at this incredible seminar.

The cost to attend is about $2000 (including airfare). I would be grateful for ANY contribution you would be willing to make to help make this dream come true. ANYTHING HELPS!

Thank you so much!
