I have been selected to represent the USA collegiate judo team in the 2019 Summer World University Games in Naples, Italy. It is the second largest multi-sport event in the world, just behind the summer Olympics, and there will be over 9,000 athletes competing from all over the world. It will be from July 3-14, 2019. I will have to pay for airfare, 7 days room and board, team apparel, training, and other fees. I am currently a junior at Austin Peay State University and am majoring in Biology with a minor in Chemistry and Pre-Veterinary Medicine.
