Help me become a sommelier!

Hello to all. I am hoping to pursue a long time dream of becoming a sommelier. For those that do not know me I'll provide some of my background. I have been a waitress for many years. I have spent a lot of time in other professions, but always am pulled back to the hospitality industry. About three years ago I began my wine knowledge journey when inspired by a manager that is a sommelier. I quickly found I have a very sensitive pallet for wine. I also have a mind that is quick to remember facts regarding wine. I have been encouraged to try to become a sommelier by many people. It has become a passion of mine. I truly believe I can become a successful sommelier. I know these times are trying so I greatly appreciate any help in pursuing my first step to be a level 1 sommelier. I decided to create this fundraiser so that instead of getting Christmas or birthday (January 12th) presents I can pursue my education. Anything helps. I thank you all very much for your contribution to my future. Any excess funds will go to certifying for level 2. Thank you everyone!
