Hello everyone, thanks to hexdevs' generosity, I managed to secure a ticket to the Ruby conference in San Diego. However, at this moment, I find myself lacking the resources to cover my travel expenses. Since losing my job in May, I've been through numerous job interviews with no success. My plan was to secure employment before the end of September to finance this trip, but unfortunately, things didn't turn out as expected.

Since I began learning Ruby, I've admired many people in our community and have been contributing as much as I can to be part of our ecosystem. Most of my previous jobs have focused on causes that benefit humanity. My first job as a web developer was for the government of Peru, where I played a crucial role in creating services to eliminate bureaucratic barriers and fight corruption. During that time, I also started supporting the Ruby community in Peru, which eventually led me to become one of the organizers. My connection with the OpenRubyFoundation allowed me to establish links with the wnb-dev.rb community, and since then, I have continued to evolve in various ways.

These experiences have allowed me to give back the support I've received, whether through mentoring or supporting many of our members, and have led me to become the technical leader of our website. Furthermore, I've contributed to various community causes, such as RubyForGood.

I don't usually ask for help in situations like this. But I don’t want to miss the opportunity to attend this conference, which will allow me to connect with more colleagues in our community and, who knows, maybe find the opportunity for my future job. Any help you can provide will be immensely appreciated and paid forward to the community in the future. Thank you for listening and for being part of this wonderful community. #RubyCommunity #SupportForTravel
