If you were given 150 words to request a travel award for a conference what could you write?

Write something on why you really would love to attend and maybe an experience of a conference you went to and how it changed you. If this is for presenting then include a bit of your story and what you'd like to impart on attendees, but that you unfortunately don't have corporate sponsorship.

Generally, the only time I request travel for conferences is when I'm letting my employer know, "I've been invited to speak at about and it comes all expenses paid: if you don't want the company's name next to mine, I'll be taking days of PTO; otherwise, you can let me bill as though I was on a regular project".
