Hi all--thanks so much for the support! I've met my fundraising goal; I'll send out an update of how it went once I've finished the Institute. Thanks again!
Hi friends and family!
Thanks for visiting my page. I'm fundraising to go to the StartingBloc Institute, a five-day training for young leaders about how to increase our impact (see links below). Essentially, it will be a group of do-gooders like me who are commited to leaving the world better than when we entered it.
I'm excited to meet the other participants--friends who have attended other Institutes have told me that it is a community of talented and compassionate people. I'm also excited to discuss and refine my own dreams; I may know that I want to combat gender inequalities in the US and abroad, but I'm not exactly sure how. This Institute will help.
Anything you can give wil be greatly appreciated, even if it's just continued support. I wouldn't have gotten as far as I have in life without all of you.
Lotsa love, and please let me know how you're doing!

The StartingBloc Fellowship begins with the Institute for Social Innovation.
The Institute is a five-day transformative experience during which young leaders learn to increase their impact, exponentially. The Institute curriculum includes a survey of social innovation, an innovative case-study competition and sessions with industry leaders.
The 2012 New York Institute will take place over August 2 - 6 at the Design for Social Innovation Space at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
