THE STORY:

Dear community, friends, and family,

I am thrilled to have been selected as a StartingBloc Fellow for their NOLA '16 Institute! I have heard from friends who've attended StartingBloc that this institute and community is a game-changer for work in the social sector, and am so excited for the opportunity to learn and grow through this experience. 

StartingBloc is a 5-day experience that connects change agents with the trainings, practical skills development, resources, and support to maximize their impact. I am excited for this opportunity, and am asking for the support of my incredible community to make this possible. I have received a partial scholarship (yay!) from StartingBloc, but the costs of tuition, travel, and accomodations while there are still going to be quite costly. This fundraiser goes directly to my tuition, so you will be directly supporting my learning and growth to better prepare me both in my personal and professional life to build a better world. 

Why am I interested in attending? My passion is working at the intersections of human rights, sustainable (just & equitable) development, and social innovation to create opportunity for marginalized comunities. The goal I identified in my application for StartingBloc is to use this experience to learn how to strategically combine these interests and passions with my skills to maximize my impact both in my current work* and in new projects. Beyond that, attending StartingBloc would be a chance for me to grow in my work as a change agent and better prepare for a career creating social impact and working for change.

*What is my current work? I am currently working with Peacework to launch our newest initiatve, Greenwork. With Greenwork, we are building on Peacework's model of cross-cultural and cross-sector collaboration for impact to create collaborative projects that are rooted in climate justice. I am also volunteering with the Business and Human Rights Resource Center on their Myanmar Foreign Investing Tracking project to support responsible business in Myanmar. 

Thank you so much for all your support!
