A Message From Serendipity Woodsey
Thank you for joining me in my fundraising efforts! Some of you may know me as Magaly or Maggie or Mags, but at camp I am known as Serendipity, which means finding happiness without looking for it. That's exactly what Unicamp was for me.
My journey with Unicamp began when I was 9 years old, as a camper. So many of the first conversations around higher education, self esteem, self love, and love for nature began here. Camping and nature was not something that was accessible for many people in my community, either environmentally or financially, therefore participating in outdoor activities as a kid contributed to my love for nature and ignited a passion to advocate for marginalized communities in every realm, whether it is housing, higher education, or making it possible to send LA youth to camp!
This year I will be a Unicorp's advisor for the Transitional Youth Empowerment session, which focuses on providing foster youth mentorship and leadership development for high schoolers. This program is conscious that camping is many times inaccessible due to financial barriers, therefore, in order to send as many kids as possible and have a successful week of camp, the volunteers (me) have to fundraise.
This is where your help comes in! I need to fundraise a total of $1200 by June, any help is greatly appreciated, whether you are capable of donating, sharing, etc<3
