This will also help by blogs get more eyes which are focus on helping new people like me in crypto and steemit.

Candidate #3

Start Date4/9/2018
Primary NicheAdvocating and addressing the needs of the underprivileged in society
What Brought You to Steemit?Income source, meeting new people and having fun
Long-term Goals?My longterm goals of steemit will be to take the community to a whole new level and attract as many as possible to this community so that they can have the same opportunities i did when i joined the platform. Also, i want to use my account in a voicing sense to advocate for those whose voices are not heard out there and to address problems in our society. My account will also be used to portray all they activities of my community GLOW which is one formed by determined youths who want to impact their communities with change and are doing so by reaching out to the needy ones. In short, where there is a need, we want to be present to address it. Plus i dream to become a whale someday here on steemit and my account will be a motivation and inspiration to so many with millions of followers and posts.

How Many Posts Last 4 Weeks?~30
How Many Followers?152
Amount of Steem Power?15 SP
Why Should We Pick You?I am a minnow here who shows promise and great potential but lacks the resources to fully develop them. Picking me up as a delegatee for this funding will be just the missing piece to creating a future whale here on steemit. Two things set me apart which are honesty and my zeal. I only voice out the truth and i live by the code of honesty and nothing can corrupt that. My zeal towards the things i believe in and want to achieve can be incomparable to anyone's.

Candidate #4

Start Date1/29/2018
Primary NicheCooking/Food
What Brought You to Steemit?People in my cryptocurrency forum were always posting here, and it seemed like a great place to post my cooking content, crypto content, and other random stuff like my creative dating ideas.
Long-term Goals?I would love to grow it long term. I love the platform and format. Excited to be here, and it is nice to add a little extra crypto a long the way.

Why Should We Pick You?I think my posts can really help people learn how to cook some amazing food. At least they have really helped my YouTube following. Also if they learn some fun dating ideas a long the way from my dating posts, that would be cool as well. haha :)

Candidate #5

Start Date3/13/2018
Primary NichePersonal Development
What Brought You to Steemit?I always like to write. A few days ago I did not know about Steemit. But I always wanted to learn something new. And I used to take good things. Naturally, when I got to know Steveet, I tried to find out more about it. I think it's a platform that can be helpful in reducing unemployment. And that's how I came to steemit. And there are many people whom I have encouraged.
Long-term Goals?I want everyone to come to this community through my writing and can contribute a bit more to this community. And I'm determined to give this community a better gift.

Candidate #6

Start Date3/12/2018
Primary NicheEntrepreneurism, Smartcasting, Research, Innovation, Poetry, Public Speaking, Writing, Spirituality and Hip Hop Culture
What Brought You to Steemit?Several months ago, I was listening to an interview with Stan Larimer in which he was describing the concept of Delegated Proof of Stake (DPoS) and the superior transaction speed when compared to Proof of Work (PoW). He laid out some concerns to consider for the future of Bitcoin and talked about he son's creation of the Bitshares platform. That's when I began to look for Dan Larimer's work and discovered the Steemit platform. Around the same time, I began working on a new project called smartcasting with my co-hosts Ian Altosaar and David Schofield, and Ian suggested that we move our initiative to Steemit.
Long-term Goals?My long term goals for my Steemit account are to learn as much as I can about cryptocurrencies, build a genuine following of people who are sincerely interested in the ideas and projects that I will be seeking to create or have created, support other Sreemit accounts that provide quality information or services and develop a steady income from my creative and entrepreneurial nature.

Amount of Steem Power?15 SP
Why Should We Pick You?I am already very active on Steemit, supporting great content creators and initiatives. What I'm lacking is enough Steem Power to have more of an impact as a curator. I also have a lot of ideas that need some funding in order to get them off the ground; projects like Steem Cloud, which is also oriented towards helping minnows and would require only small amounts of Steem in order to get it moving; something that 45 days of a significant increase of Steem Power could help me accomplish. What I believe sets me apart from others is what I just stated above, that I'm already in motion as a content creator, innovator and curator who has been dedicated to putting time and energy into Steemit, while having little to no influence and gaining little to no reward. I'm here for the long run! This delegation could really help me to boost things forward and hopefully benefit my family and those persons and initiatives that Famiglia Curione support.

Candidate #7

Start Date1/30/2018
Primary NicheLinux and Hacking
What Brought You to Steemit?A friend of mine told me about it.
Long-term Goals?I would like to be able to make some money from my account in order to pay for a server so that I can become a witness and run a full node server.
