Over the past few years, volleyball has become a huge part of my life. I started playing in grade 11, which for most people is considered late. However, I was able to earn a scholarship to play in the United States at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in Division 2 of the NCAA starting as a freshman.
I've had many accomplishments over my 4 years, some being: making the All-PSAC honors team, NCAA Atlantic Regional Volleyball All-Tournament Team twice, and becoming the 15th Fighting Scots in history to record 1,000 career kills. I concluded my four-year career ranked 15th all-time in career kills and 10th all-time in career block solos.Recently I have been given the opportunity to travel to Europe on an Exposure Tour with the end goals to be signed to play on a professional team in Europe for the upcoming season after I graduate. Each Exposure Tour comprises a group of individual players that sign up to train and play against European club teams together. With the ultimate goal being to learn what professional volleyball is really all about, and the hope of receiving a professional contract with a team by the end of the tour.
The tour is January 6-16th 2018 and the athletes are expected to pay for it themselves. I am hoping to have the opportunity to attend this European Tour and with your help it is possible. My goal is to raise $4,000 by December 15, 2018, which would include the funds I would need to pay for airfare, all of the hotels, ground transportation and breakfast and dinner for each day. I may not be able to reach my goal, however; anything that you can donate will help me get closer to being able to have this opportunity and would be very much appreciated.
If anyone has any questions you are more than welcome to message me!
Thank you very much in advance!
