This year was kind with me. Euronews nominated me European Personality of the Year, and Forbes included me in the Forbes 30 under 30 Europe 2018 list, at the Law&Policy category.
This created new opportunities where I can meet relevant persons that could help us in our fight against corruption in Romania.
As a Forbes 30u30 list-maker, I was invited by the founder of the Forbes 30
program, Randall Lane to the US Forbes Under 30 Summit in Boston, that will happen at the end of September in Boston, USA.
This Forbes event that will happen in Boston, USA, will allow me to connect with people from activism, media, mass media industry from the US, that could write about the situation in Romania, if they will be aware of what is happening here.
The Under 30 Summit is an open forum for Under 30 listmakers—past,
present and future—
to take the stage and share their stories.
The price value of the Free Premium ticket that I had got is 4.950$

Plane ticket = $500-800 (done)
Hostel 5 days = $300
7 day subway&Bus Pass = $21.25
After Boston I will go for 4 days in New York and 4 days in Washington, were I will try to do the same, meeting with relevant people from NY and Washington.
Hostel 4 days NY = $300
Hostel 4 days Washington = $250
Transportation = $100
This is why I had setup this crowdfunding page. To try and see if there will be persons that would be willing to help me to go to Boston at the end of September, and after that to New York and Washington.
Why do you want to go to this event ?
I would love to participate in this event because the event will gather the brightest minds in the world, the most influential people in the world,
and this could be relevant as the situation in Romania deteriorates, to
have new connections and persons that could help us in the fight against
corruption in Romania.
Planning to interview some of the Actors, activists and personalities that will attend the event, and get their opinion about what is happening in Romania.
