Welcome to Ludovica's Fundraising Page!
Hi everybody! I’m Ludovica and I’m 16 years old. I’m at the fourth year of high school. When I was seven I did my first fencing lesson ever. At the age of ten I took part in my first real competition. During those years, until I became 15 and passed to U17 category, i won a lot of regional and interregional competitions and placed third and sixth in my last two national competitions as an U14. During the years as an U17 I took part to a lot of national and international competitions often reaching my aims and obtaining good results. I ended my experience as a cadet placing 12th in the Italian national ranking.
Now it's the moment to make a breakthrough!
The fencing world is divided into three specialities: foil, epee and sabre. My speciality is foil.
My goal is to participate to international competitions to acquire experience and to increase my national and international ranking in order to take part of the national team and to have the possibility to realize another dream: having the possibility to take a scholarship and entering in one USA university to study medicine and in the meanwhile continuing with fencing at high level.
I don't have any contribution from my society and from the Italian Federation (like the majority of Italian atlethes).
The funds will be used for fencing equipement and for competitions.
I'd like to thank my fencing teams "SS Lazio Scherma Ariccia" where I started my passion, and "ASD Frascati" my actual team, my coaches Lorenzo Nini and Alessandra Nucci, and, first of all, my parents who have supported and endured me during these years.
Thanks a lot to everybody who will support me in my dream. Please share my Rally via the social media share buttons on my page. This will be very appreciated.
