Help Me Attend The 2014 Courageous Voices: Seeds Of Hope & Transformation LGBTI Mental Health Conference

Kia Ora, my name is Huriana, and my mother is an Indigenous Psychologist who will be presenting at the 2014 Courageous Voices: Seeds of Hope & Transformation LGBTI Mental Health Conference in Sydney, Australia.

I would love to attend this conference for multiple reasons, the first being to support my mother in her role as a panel member discussing indegenous LGBTI or Takatapui suicide prevention. The second being that I will soon start volunteering at School's Out, A gay youth organization based in Wellington. I would love to be able to bring back the knowledge that I acquire and be able to share it with the youth and volunteers that are involved in School's Out. Lastly, I would like to attend this conference because I recently came out and am still struggling with many challenges and issues that come with trying to define your sexuality and identity as a young Maori woman.

The conference is the first of its kind to be held anywhere in the world and it would be such a tremendous opportunity for me to learn and grow and be able to share that knowledge with other young LGBTI Indigenous youth that I've come into contact with through my volunteer role at School's Out. I have been fundraising through a small catering job that I have once a week at Otago Medical School (Wellington Campus) but still need to raise $1000 for my travel costs as everything else is being paid for. I come from a single parent home and so it has been hard to come up with the money needed for the airplane tickets, and other travel costs.

I have until June 21st at the latest to raise the money for my airfares as the conference is on the 26th. I hope you'll be able to help me get there. Thank you.
