Send Nicole to StartingBloc in LA

The StartingBloc Fellowship is an unparalleled opportunity for passionate young changemakers to equip themselves with the skills, mentors, and advocates to turn their small ideas into big realities — taking emerging leaders who are high potential and making them high impact.

I strive to be one of these young changemakers, and I cannot be more excited to announce that I’ve been accepted to the 2018 StartingBloc Institute in Los Angeles, California!

I want to invest in myself and my professional growth, but I need your help. I cannot cover all of the travel and program costs of this Fellowship on my own, so please join me in raising ~$2,000 to attend StartingBloc in LA from February 22-26.

Institute cost: $1,250
Application cost: $40
Flight to Los Angeles: $573
GoFundMe processing fee (3% of total): $57
Total: $1,920

Any amount helps -- from $5 to $50, your investment is greatly appreciated! Additional funds raised will help cover accommodation and transportation costs in LA during the Fellowship.
