Frontrunners:DeafLeadership Program

I'm pretty much done with what I need for Frontrunners, all the fees are paid, my residence card is set, etc. But I'll leave this up for now if you ever want to refer back to this or even donate a bit more (it always helps for misc costs). I probably won't be posting many more updates on here, but you can see more on my website.


My name is Rogan Shannon, and I've been accepted to an amazing program in Denmark called Frontrunners. It's essentially an international deaf youth leadership program that accepts up to two people from any given country. It'll be covering a huge range of topics from deafness (culture, language, history, Deafhood, etc.) to leadership to social entrepreneurship.

I'm creating this because I need funding to be able to go. The program alone costs 66.500 DKK which translates to approximately $10,110 USD. This covers classes, room and board for the majority of the program. I have set the goal to be $20,000 because there will be additional expenses for travel, parts of the program that I will be required to pay on my own, and other miscellanous unforseeable expenses.

If you're interested, you can watch my application video in the link below. It's signed in International Sign but there are English captions available.

I have another video explaining Frontrunners in detail. You can find it here: About Frontrunners

Even a small amount will help, and I greatly appreciate any help you can give me!
