Heading to Signularity University - Need Your Support

I am off for 10-weeks to study at Singularity Unviversity starting June 19th. This is no small feat and I need your support in order to be able to document the experience.

Singularity University is on the NASA Ames Research Campus. The non-profit university, started by Dr. Peter Diamandis and Dr. Ray Kurzweil, is where the best minds from the fields of bio, nano, info, AI, and related technologies come together and work to solve some of humanity's grand challenges. These challenges include poverty, world hunger, water shortage, home energy, global warming, and an infinite number of other humanitarian needs. More on Singularity University can be found on the Singularity University website.

Being able to attend is going to be a life changing experience, but just going to the program isn't enough. There is an opportunity here for a great story about how a fashionable girl who likes art and design came to embrace computer science and technology. My journey could really help other women and girls see their potential.

To do this, I am looking for financial and technical support. Your support will allow me blog and document the experience for others to view and share on the world wide web through a community portal. I've created a GoFundMe site to help acquire financial support, please help in whatever way you can. Any amount is greatly appreciated.

Thank You,

Alison Lewis
