I've recently been presented with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to train and play with a professional club in Portugal this July. It would be an amazing learning opportunity, and could potentially lead to playing abroad indefinitely, something I've always dreamed of. But after spending the last year being a full-time student and athlete, I haven't had time to work and save up for this. My mom, a single parent of 3, has already done SO much for me (and my sisters)! She's been driving me around to practices, games, and tournaments, for nearly 15 years! Even during our most difficult financial times, she's somehow come up with the money for me to play for academies and train with the best. I don't know how she did it, but I am thankful for her.
With Serra and I both in college now, I can't ask my Mom to pay for this too, so I guess it's up to me... and you!! Although it's difficult for me to ask for help, I'm going to have to swallow my pride, because I really need to go to Portugal and do this! I need your help to make it happen! Any amount will be greatly appreciated, and you will be contributing to changing my life and making a dream come true.
