I am chasing my dream of becoming an elite pole vaulter and hopefully making it to the Olympics one day. Each day I make progress towards this goal while having fun doing what I love. I cannot support myself on my own, as this sport is costly. It requires buying poles for me to jump on, paying for travel expenses going to competitions, and daily living costs like eating and a place to live. Funding will make my life much easier, and it will allow me to focus more of my time on improving myself as an athlete.
My personal best has increased from 4.88m (16') in high school, to 5.70m (18'8.25") at the end of my college career at Arkansas State University.
