I only considered doing 2Seeds in the beginning because I didn’t know we had to fundraise. I did not realize it was a part of the program until after I had become excited about becoming a PC and decided to apply.

Additionally, $8000 (our individual fundraising goal) is a larger number than I ever could have imagined asking people for. It felt like a giant number and it wouldn’t have mattered if it were $4,000 or $20,000, I wouldn’t have known what to make of it or how I would get there.
