16 Year Old App Developer to WWDC

Hello! My name is Brandon Boynton, and I am a 16 year old Apple licensed developer. I consider myself an entrepreneur, yet love working with code!

I am blessed to be 1 of 200 student developers, world wide, to have been awarded a $1,600 scholarship to attend The World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC)! This event is held in San Francisco from June 2-6th. While this is an incredible opportunity, the scholarship award covers only the event admission. At this point in time, I am not in a position in which I can afford flying, lodging, food, and a transportation for a week. This is why I ask for your generous support!

---My Work---

You don't have to just take my word for it! Let me show you some of my apps!

My most recent app, (probably the coolest) can be seen here! http://youtu.be/TpjqNfc-5I0

My most important app, The BullyBox, is a revolutionary way for high school and middle school students to report acts of bullying in a 100% safe and anonymous manor. Students can send information, photographic evidence, and take a stand in their school without coming into harms way! More information can be found at www.mostbeastlystudios.com/bullybox

My first app was for the radio station I work for, 91.7 WEEM FM. I work as the Assistant Engineer, and can often be found running wire in the station. The app allows users to listen to a live stream of the station. Namely, so relatives from anywhere in the world can listen to their Pendleton Heights High School family members play in 'the big game' as our on-air broadcasters call play-by-play.

---Expenses---

Because I am less than 18 years of age, my mother will be traveling with me; however, I will be attending the actual conference alone.

The incurred costs are listed as such:

1. Tickets for the flight are $450 each ($900 total).
2. Public transportation in San Francisco will be $30 for the week
3. The room is $1,300 for all 5 nights (And it's not exactly living in the lap of luxury, lol)
4. One of the most important tasks ahead of me, is that of networking. With that being said, I am wanting to allocate $20 a day for lunch and coffee at the conference with other developers. ($140 total)

I want to thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide! I very much appreciate any consideration, and even the smallest of donations will help me to attend this prestigious conference.
