Send Emma to Worlds 2017!

Raised by 18 people in 12 months
My name is Emma Gloudeman, and I'm going to the artistic roller skating world championships in Nanjing, China in just three short weeks!

I started skating as soon as I could walk -- I actually had skates before I was even born. This year at the US National Championships I placed 1st in Junior World Class figures, which made me a member of USA Roller Sports Team USA. I also placed 3rd in World Class figures, but I decided to forfeit my spot on the senior team so I could focus my efforts at the junior level again.


This wasn't my first medal at the National Championships; over the years I've earned 8 gold medals, 5 silver medals and a bronze in A-level figure events. I've also earned 5 medals at the America's Cup Championships, which includes skaters from North, Central and South America. But qualifying for Team USA and competing at the world championships is, by far, the greatest honor and accomplishment of my skating career and my entire life.

The highlight of my skating career was definitely placing 8th at the world championships last year in Italy. My goal was to finish in the top ten, and I did it!  I am so grateful to everyone who donated last year, and I feel very responsible to each and every one of you to make sure your money was put to good use. So this year my goal is top 5, and I've been very focused all year making significant improvements to help make that goal a reality, and to make your support a worthwhile cause.

While I've been working hard to earn and save money for this trip, I could use your help again. This past year my family and I hosted multiple dinners, so fortunately I am already starting out ahead of where I was last year! I am still responsible for 100% of my own expenses, including airfare, lodging, food, entry fees, training fees, visas, uniforms...everything. Last year we had nearly two months to fundraise, but this year we have only three weks, as we leave August 27.

I am so excited and proud to represent both my country and my fellow US skaters! Please help me make it to China!
