IBJJF American National Fund

My name is Sophie Sharp,  I’m 12 years old, and a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu fighter under retired UFC fighter Kurt Pellegrino. Since starting 2 years ago,  I live and breath Jiu Jitsu, and I have dreams to be the youngest Jiu Jitsu  World Champion! 

In order to reach my goal, I need to start competing in the biggest tournaments. June 29th in Las Vegas Nevada is my first big tournament, IBJJF American National, and I’m working  to make sure I bring home the gold. 

I train hard; 25+ hours a week on the mats and at the gym. I homeschool so I can make my dreams come true and I still maintain a straight A average. 

I’m doing everything I can, and working so hard, but I still need some help financially to get to the tournament! I would really appreciate whatever you could afford to help me out. 

Thank you, and I hope you have an awesomesauce day!!
