Julia's Dream Soccer Experience

My name is Julia Minkstein and I am a dedicated soccer player, mentally and physically. Ever since I was 4 years old I was already out on the pitch moving the ball around starting with rec leagues. Now here I am, 14 years old. Back then, if someone were to tell me I would be playing for Peninsula United, training for academy, I would of said they were crazy. I accomplished and overcame so many amazing, yet difficult obstacles and milestones over the past 10 years. I am  proud of my accomplishments and my sport.

This past week I trained in a local camp with two coaches from Hyde United Football Club (loacated in the North of England). I really put in the work and effort at camp to make those coaches see how badly I wanted it, I was one of five girls participating in the camp. I was one of two girls chosen to come back to England and train with there womans academy. This is the first time in 6 years of camps that they are taking girls back. This is beyond a dream come true for me,and it is a huge success and I am honored. 

Now, with this offer came with a shock to me and my family. August 4th is coming up quick and with that I need to raise five thousand dollars. I set a deadline by July 23rd and by that time, I'll need to have the money. I appreciate your supoirt and donations. Soccer is truely my life. Please help  my dream come to real life and donate what you can to help me fund this trip to train in England.

Thank you for your time and support!
