I wouldn’t disclose that you’re moving until after you try to negotiate a raise. Your bosses might just think “we’re losing her anyways, what’s the point in making her happy?”

I also wouldn’t say anything about knowing that someone else got a raise sooner. I would just be straightforward in stating that you have worked over a year and deserve something! Mentioning the feedback would be fine, though.

Good luck!

Yes, I agree.  Focus on what you have done (much like you have here).  Stress what you have accomplished, mention what you have endured.  Do not compare or mention anyone else.  And definitely do not mention the move…at least, not yet.
