As a full time nursing student and athlete, my part time job will not cover the $4,000 in training, equipments and travel expenses. WCSU generously will support the coaching and pool time. My family will be as supportive of the commitment in every way possible and we are able to raise close to $1000. We are not able to cover all the expenses to make this happen. My friends have encouraged me not give up this opportunity but seek support. They have said " you may not have money but you have friends, many friends, allow them to help you with the remaining $ 3000".
Each and every friend has been such an inspiration to me. If I can swim in the World Championships, I hope to be an inspiration to so many young girls to pursue their dreams through all their bumps and curves in life.
Thank you for your support in giving me the boost I need toward my biggest dream. I will do my best to make you proud. I will keep you posted on my progress.
