This is my website for my European Discovery trip in July 2010. The China link below will take you to my Great Wall and Beyond China trip this past summer in July of 2011.
Let's go to China!
Also, the "blog" tab above starts with our upcoming July 2012 Mediterranean Traditions trip and goes backwards to my very first trip in 2010. See if you can find me throughout - Where in the world is Erica now?
Hi. My name is Erica Criscione, and I am a Fairfield County 4-H member at The Beardsley Zoo and a 9th-grade honor roll student at Jonathan Law High School in Milford, CT. I was recently recommended and accepted to participate in the People to People Student Ambassador Program to Europe this summer.
The program promotes international understanding while building leadership skills among America’s youth. The 20-day trip includes meetings with government officials, interaction with other students my age, educational activities, and home stays with host families.
I believe the knowledge that I gain from this educational experience will help me become the best citizen I can be.
I know that I can make a difference in the world and make our country proud. As an Ambassador, I will also earn high school and college credit.
I am currently asking my family, friends, acquaintances and local businesses to help me with the costs of the trip. I have been working hard to raise $6,499, which includes my transportation, room & board, plus educational activities.
