Yeah, it's me. Again. Being poor.
You do know me already, right? But let's start all this with a brief introduction. I'm Julianny, I'm a 20 year old student from Brazil and well... I am a libertarian! Which is why I am here again.
I've tried this crowndfunding stuff once, a few months ago, and it was absolutely amazing! You can check the firstcrowndfunding here: Juuh in the US! - the main purpose was to raise money so I could pay for the American visa application fee and half of the flight tickets prices. Why? Because I wanted to attend to some events there, all of them related to the liberty cause. Thankfully I got the American visa, but the problem is: I couldn't go to these events because of the flight tickets price. I knew that after paying the visa application fee it wouldn't have a lot of money - 140$. In Brazil the flight tickets price to America are nearly 900 dollars. But I was truly embarrassed to ask for that amount of money, especially for such a personal cause and I thought I could get the rest with my work income.
Unfortunately, things didn't get much better than last time. I spent a lot of money with medications for my mom and our house bills. For those who don't know, she had cancer on October last year, but had several complications during her chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Her immune system was failing, so she spent most of 2016 feeling sick and going to the hospital. Plus, some of you may know, I had a very strange moment where I was just extremely depressed, had some issues with self-harming, etc - which also didn't help at all.
Still, I confess that I am quite ambitious and I can't stop dreaming. I would LOVE to go to one libertarian event in America, so I never really stopped to apply for every opportunity. So I got accepted to the Mises University 2017 (fucking awesome - sorry guys, too exciting!). They provide accomodation, meals, and the whole course for those who applied for the student scholarship (my case) so I just need to buy the flight tickets now!
So, I am asking for 800 dollars. 700$ for the flight tickets and 100$ to the transportation in America (bus and train). If you think this is legit cause, even though it's a personal one, help me! Guys, really, Any ANY value will help me. 5$, 10$, 15$

Last but not least,
I would like to thank Nat, Ryan, Martim, Stefan. Without you I wouldn't be able to take the first step and as I said, it's such for a personal cause and yet you guys gave me so much support! I will NEVER forget that. Also, I would like to thank Ted, Roberto, Mack, Jacob, Daniel and all the people from Twitter who helped me a lot, and were always so kind and special to me. When I most needed, and you know what I mean, YOU were the ones who helped me. I sincerely consider you my dearest friends. And no joke, I CAN'T wait to meet and eat pizza with you guys.
Again, Nat, Ryan, Martim and Stefan. If you read this, please do not donate again. You guys have already done way too much for me and I will never be able to thank you enough.
