Ice hockey Journey 
First of all I want to say that it has been a crazy year for all of us and we still live in a world where we don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow. With that being said my name is Vadim and I come from a place where snowdrops grow. When I was younger you couldn’t stop me from running around and trying new things, exactly like all other young gentleman. One day I discovered my passion when my dad brought me ice hockey skates from Czech Republic. He arrived around 2am on a Christmas night and I had no sleep in any of my eyes. I could not resist to try them on and ended up sleeping in them. Soon, I learned how to skate and my dad took me to the rink every weekend. However, there is not much ice hockey in Estonia so I never got into it until 12 years old when we moved to Kiev. Since then it has always been my passion to play ice hockey. I moved to United States to pursuit my career and stayed for some time. Finally, I have reached that point where I can go and prove myself in professional hockey. However, the times are not where we want them to be. Therefore, It is impossible to travel and pay my own expenses without any potential help. My main reason to raise money is to pay for an expensive ice hockey transfer that I need to cover moving forward. Can’t stress enough that this is amazing that there are people in the world that help others to achieve their goals. Let’s do our best as a community to adapt to living with the virus! Have an awesome day!
