Dear Community, Supporters, and Friends,
I have been chosen as a StartingBloc Fellow for the NOLA ’18 Institute for Social Innovation in New Orleans, Louisiana! I hope to attend StartingBloc to learn from the best in the intersection of creativity, global community impact, and social innovation. I am so excited for the opportunity to learn and grow through this experience.
Thanks to StartingBloc, I have received a maximum amount of scholarship, $950, toward the $1250 tuition cost. However, the costs of tuition, travel, and accommodation while there are still going to be quite costly.
Now, I need to raise $300. 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.
What does StartingBloc Fellow mean?
StartingBloc is a 5-day experience that connects change agents with the trainings, practical skills development, resources, and support to maximize their impact. We are a group of carefully selected innovators, entrepreneurs and activists who are eager to make the world a better place. At the NOLA '18 StartingBloc Institute, Fellows participate in a series of workshops and activities designed to inspire, instruct, and stretch their limits. They will learn directly from high impact entrepreneurs and change leaders. They will also work with proven frameworks for delivering change, and build relationships with new life-long allies.

I am working in health development sector and the challenge is to create and distribute equal resources into every people. I believe I can make such a life changing and profound impact on health development with StartingBloc fellows from all different professional and personal endeavors.
As an international student in the States, StartingBloc will help me make significant and lasting impact both in the US and international communities. The StartingBloc Fellowship will equip me with the knowledge, resources, and connections to create true positive change in the community.
