The point at which a white American girl from an economically well-off family goes on a trip sometime slightly before her senior year of high school (usually with a religious youth group or other like organization) to a poor nation (most commonly one within Africa) and after returning claims to have "helped the less fortunate" and/or "learned life lessons and discovered her true self." Upon further review of her attention whore
photos with starving children of another race posted to Facebook
, it quickly becomes apparent that the purpose for this trip was to manufacture a notable recent experience to write about in a college application
for some Ivy League university
that all her family members probably attended. Often a last resort for girls who are stupid, slutty, untalented, have other shortcomings, or a combination of those qualities.
Ashley had a GPA of 2.2 and her only extracurricular was sucking dick, so she had to take an application safari to get into a decent university.
