Taneisha Dawkins, 25, of Rockingham, seeks your help in funding a three-week educational trip in May to the CPI Spanish Immersion School in Costa Rica.

Dawkins, 25, will be on hand from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Jan. 10 at 4 T’s Diner in Rockingham to help prepare and serve what her family is hoping to be a solid turnout of fans who love all-you-can-eat breakfasts — and help a young woman with her higher education aspirations at the same time.

Proceeds from the five-hour event will help fund Dawkins’ trip to Costa Rica in May as part of a three-week program at a CPI Spanish Immersion School in the Heredia region of San Joaquín de Flores, and Monteverde. The trip is from May 19 through June 8. While there, she also will be doing service work at numerous refugee camps.

“What better way to learn Spanish,” Dawkins asked rhetorically.

Dawkins completed her associate’s degree at Sandhills Community College and now attends University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Majoring in human development and family studies, she hopes to open a facility similar to Sandhills Children’s Center to work with special-needs kids.

“The study abroad trip to Costa Rica will be beneficial to my future career and future goals because it will help me to better understand and communicate with the Latino community,” Dawkins said on a GoFundMe online campaign page.

All-you-can-east breakfasts are $7.99 apiece. Proceeds will help pay for program costs and airfare, Dawkins said. The trip is estimated to cost approximately $4,250.
