Can you help me make sure my lifelong DREAM of playing for the United States Deaf National team in Milan, Italy in June 2020 comes true?
Many of you know I started playing volleyball at a young age and spent so much of my life aspiring to play at the highest level possible. In high school, while playing club volleyball, I was lucky to be offered the opportunity to play at Gallaudet University. Those 4 years playing college volleyball were the best 4 years of my life. After I finished college, I coached for three years, but I knew my playing career was far from over -- I am so ecstatic and honored to have been offered a spot on the USA Deaf National roster. It truly has been a dream come true for me.
The World Championships will be taking place in Milan, Italy in June 2020. The amount I need to fundraise is $3,300 -- it will cover the airfare, lodging, meals, training, event fees, etc. In reality, playing and representing United States is the most priceless thing I will ever have done. The World Championships takes place every four years and Team USA won the Gold in 2016. TOGETHER, we can make sure that the USA Deaf Volleyball team is well represented and that we return as World Champions once again!
