In 2008 at the age of 13 and in the 8th grade I was the youngest athlete to be selected by the US Ski Team's Development Program, in hopes of becoming an Olympic aerial skier. I have since continued my high school education and will graduate with high honors this spring from The United State Ski Team Academy. In addition, I am training fulltime as a National and US Ski Team athlete to win an Olympic Medal and become a World Champion. I plan on enrolling in college this coming summer and aspire to become a lawyer. While it will take me at least 7 more years to reach my educational goal, in the interim I have several Olympics to compete in, World Cups to win all representing the United States.
The US Ski Team is not funded by the United States government, but rather by parents and supporters of athletes like me. My educational commitments and full time training leave little room for internships or part time jobs.
I do not aspire to be a professional skier, but rather the best aerialist in the world and use my athletic experience and education to become a productive and good citizen for the betterment of myself and others. This is my internship for life.
My dreams and aspirations do not come without a cost and investment. My investment of course is a lifestyle sacrifice, hard work, constant training, with persist athletic and educational focus. I summon you to support me in a financial way if you believe in my purpose. No contribution is too small, anything to help cover my expenses to fulfill this dream will be greatly appreciated and directly support me in reaching my Olympic goal!
