Hometown: Flagstaff, Arizona
High School: Coconino High School
Program: 2013 Peru 3 Week
Stephanie first heard about Walking Tree the fall of her junior year from a presentation in her class. She was really interested because her family frequently travels together, but she wanted a different travel experience. When she first presented the program to her parents, they thought it was too costly. Stephanie, however, was still really excited about traveling abroad and thought, “I can do this.” She set a goal to raise $4190 for the 2013 Peru 2 Week program. She got a summer job as a nanny and worked through September of her senior year. Inspired by her softball team’s fundraiser, she also held a successful enchilada fundraiser to help pay for her flight from Flagstaff to Houston. By December of 2012, she had raised so much that she decided to go on the Peru 3 Week Program instead of just the Peru 2 Week Program.
Stephanie’s advice to other students who are thinking about fundraising is, “If you are told that you can’t do something and it’s not possible, look and see what you are able to do. I set my goals high and told my mom and dad I was going to do it, and I did. For my enchilada sale, I knew what people were interested in purchasing and that I could make it on my own. Be creative and think about what people will buy, but also be realistic about what you can make and sell. Think about what can you do to make this happen, not what other people can do for you to make this happen.”
