My Soccer Trip to Italy

Coming out of high school I wasnt sure if I wanted to keep playing soccer and continuing my education. I decided that for long term plans it was best that I got my degree. So I continued my education at San Diego Mesa College. My first year I focused on my studies but having played sports all through high school I felt like continung to play soccer would help balance that out. At first playing was to just get away from all the negatives of the outside world. After my first year my teammates and I were able to put together a winning season and made playoffs for the first time in 15 years. It was a great accomplishment that helped me win goalkeeper of the conference and team defensive MVP.  So I started thinking maybe this isnt all I have in the tank. I spoke with my coaches about playing at a four year and if they thought it was a possibility. They agreed  I be crazy not to.  In my final year at Mesa College we continued our success and made playoffs again. However, falling short of our goal to win state. I won a couple awards like team MVP and a Selection on the State Sophmore showcase. Over the two years at Mesa College I made life long friends and I became forever grateful for the opportunitys god has put at my feet. I was offered a couple scholarships and accepted one to Point Park University.  Ironically enough it was in my home town of Pittsburgh,PA. Althought it was tough to pack up and move across country I had all the support from my Family and my amazing friends which made the transition that much easier. Now at the end of the my first year at Point Park I know I have made the right choice. While both my grades and soccer have been more than I ever expected I have been selected as an all conference player and invited to a once in a life time soccer camp in Italy. With soccer I have been able to accomplish goals I didnt believe were possible. This opportunity opens many doors for my future as a player or coach and I dont want to miss out on it. My issue is coming up with the money for this trip. So Im asking for some help from my family, friends and anyone who would like to support my trip. Im truly blessed and grateful for this opportunity. Thank you for your time and remember anything helps.
Thank you,
