A huge “congratulations!” goes out to our Abroad101 Student of the Week, Dakota d’Oronzio! Dakota is currently a junior at Colorado State University, and is studying environmental engineering. Dakota has remained busy with her academic work as well as her extracurriculars and jobs. Outside of her studies, she is involved in club tennis and distance running. In addition, she excels in time management with her ability to fit in a job at Panera Bread and a country club, where she provides tennis lessons. Dakota has enjoyed her time making friends outside of school, but would like to see where her passion for environmental work will take her. For now, it is Aukland, New Zealand.
Dakota was recently accepted into the University of Auckland’s engineering program for this coming fall semester. Through International Studies Abroad (ISA), she will be taking interesting classes including a fluid dynamics course, which will help her in her future endeavors to become involved in international projects to get clean water to places that need it. She is very enthusiastic about the international experience that she will gain from this excursion, however the program is costly, so she would greatly appreciate any donations to help her fund her New Zealand trip. All contributions towards her fundraising Mission will be helping with her expenses including the flight, living, and books. Check out Dakota’s mission and learn why you should donate to her cause, here!
The Abroad101 Student of the Week initiative awards a student who created a Mission for a study abroad program on GoEnnounce with a donation to their fundraiser. Learn more about this partnership from Abroad101 CEO Mark Shay and GoEnnounce co-founder Melissa Davis here.
