Bonjour! Je m'appelle James, mais vous pouvez m'appeller l'homme handicapé

Bonjour Tout le monde!

My name is James and I am a second year Capital Scholar from Elmhurst (Chicago suburb). I haven't officially declared my major, but I will choose either Political Science or Legal Studies. I haven't been in a rush to declare a major because I have been excitedly enjoying my scholastic endeavor. I never thought I would have this chance to be at school, and now I have the wonderful opportunity to visit France?!?!?!!

I am one of the disabled students. The cost for disabled students traveling abroad is truly more expensive, but I have luckily been accepted to this academically challenging and incredibly caring university. My professor, Valerié, and all of my classmates are determined to raise enough money so ALL OF US can have the experience of our lifetime. Although it is more difficult for me to look for sponsors, I have met some very interesting and personable people in the Springfield area. My experience quitely differs from Chicago, and I am thankful. I am starting to believe that all of Springfield is polite and generous.

I'll be sure to post all of the sponsors who can afford to help even a little.

À Bientôt,

James

James,
You're awesome. And, without you, we couldn't have this Send James to Europe endeavor.

Thank you Christy, but we're all awesome. Any persons who help to enable a trip for disabled students and their rotary steeds (wheelchairs) rank highly in my book.

James
