I was invited to speak at BrooklynJS in Brooklyn, so I travelled domestically to speak. The event gave me a free ticket. My travel and accommodation was fully covered by the event. My employer did not pay my travel expenses, and I was unemployed when I spoke at the event. It took me 2.5 hours to prepare for my 10 minutes speaking slot, and I had a great time. I'm a non-binary who has been speaking for 4 years. This was a not for profit event. Also, ❤️
