Emily writes "Surface 71 is a 501c3 as of June 2019 thanks to BSF and the support that I received throughout the fellowship. The mentoring and all of the support that I received from FAU and BSF allowed me to start the nonprofit, Surface 71. I can 100% say that Surface 71 would not be in existence today if I was not a fellow in BSF."
