Send ALESHA to the AASECT conference!!
Friday, May 3, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
A little pay-it-forward experiment:
As many of you know, I am back in school working on my degree in Psychology (minoring in Women’s Studies and AODA Counseling) and plan on continuing with my masters in Mental Health Counseling. I am also currently doing an internship working with LGBT kids, ages 13-20.
One of the things I believe very strongly in is sex education – and not the kind of sex education that I received: Penis + Vagina = Don’t you dare do it!
Actual factual information, which will assist young people in understanding their bodies and making good choices in life – information that covers all cultures, identities, orientations, etc. Well, I have found a conference that I feel would be a wonderful addition to my education, but it is in Miami and I can’t afford the fees.
I read about someone who paid for over half of their college expenses by asking each person they knew for small sums of money. I hate asking for help, especially when money is involved, but what the heck...
Would you be willing to gift me $5.00 or $10.00 or $20.00 any other $? Everything helps!
UPDATE 4/15: Well, we didn't make the early registration deadline, BUT... I still have time!
All help is appreciated! <3
