Every day after school for the past month I have checked the mail. Whenever there was an unusually large package or envelope, I jumped- only to have jumped at packets from colleges/universities that want my money or something for my mom. But yesterday after school, it came. I had called Friday and already was informed of my status, but seeing this packet was still a relief. The waiting was torture. Absolute torture. But...
I am going to Japan!
The scholarship I won through YFU is called JUSSE (Japan-US Senate Youth Exchange). It covers everything except for $2500, which is nothing compared to the $7,495 I would have had to spend. Plus it includes Air Faire =D
Ahhh! I am so excited! I cannot wait to receive more information and attend orientation!
