Fourth Estate Leadership Summit
Hey guys! Ok so this post is different to what I normally write about on here but please bear with me because I really believe in what I'm about to say!
One of the things I feel strongly about in my life is championing my friends and getting behind them to help them achieve their goals. So today I want to talk about good friend, sister and flatmate Shannon. Shannon has a heart for justice and is studying politics and sociology so that one day she can become a world changer in human rights issues.
As part of her journey towards this career path Shannon has worked and volunteered for many different not for profit organisations, also including Invisible Children. Coming up this August there is going to be an event held in Los Angeles called the Fourth Estate Leadership Summit. You can read more about this event here but basically it's a chance to teach, empower and encourage young leaders to make a difference in this world.
Anyway, I really want to get behind Shannon to help get her to this event because I know by investing in her, I'm investing in one of our future world changers! I know this is a big ask and I wouldn't normally do this, but if you feel a calling in you to support Shannon too, please donate below. Since we are from New Zealand the cost of getting to events like this is extremely high (flights aren't cheap when you live at the bottom of the world!) and any support would mean so much.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and even if you can't support financially (and I do realise it's a hard ask to do so for a complete stranger) your prayers and encouragement mean just as much!
I will update you along the way with Shannon's journey and will keep you in the loop with the next phase of this story! Any donations made will go directly to Shannon's flights from NZ to LA.
