Brinna's America Games Judo Trip

I am a member of the 2018 All-American Collegiate Judo Team and I will be representing team USA by competing in Judo in the FISU America Games in Sao Paulo, Brazil on July 22-26, 2018. This is a multi-sport event with 1,200 athletes competing from North America, Central America, and South America. I will have to pay for airfare, 7 days of room and board, team apparel, ground transportation in Brazil, food, and other fees. I have been doing judo since I was 3 years old and I have medaled in many major tournaments:
-8 time TN state gold medalist
-Junior Olympics gold medalist
-USJA Nationals gold medalist
-2 time silver medalist in the Junior US Open
-Silver medalist in the Pan-American Cup
-Silver medalist in the North/Central American Championships 
I was previously ranked #19 in the world for 48kg in 2016, and I have since moved up into the 52kg weight category.
I would love to be able to proudly represent Team USA in the FISU America Games this summer and I hope to make you all proud. Thank you in advance for any and all donations/support.
