WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?

I have played as a member of the Women’s Open Team for the Macksville Stingers Football (soccer) Club.
I also play in the local Fustal comp.
I completed my Fustal refereeing course and am also refereeing twice a week.
I was recently selected to play for the Senior Women’s Far-North New South Wales State Representative team. I will be playing with this team at the National Futsal Championships in Sydney in January 2020.
As part of the selection for this team I will be part of an intensive training program, travel to Sydney, and involvement in Championship tournament.

WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?

To help cover the cost that is required for me to be involved in the Championships and at the encouragement of my soccer coach and school teacher.

HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?

 I would benefit from the grant by being able to cover the costs associated with being selected for this team.
Total cost for involvement in the Championships is $400, which includes $200 for tournament costs and $200 for the players kit. I could also use the grant money to help cover travel and accommodation costs associated with the trip to Sydney, as well as a pair of futsal boots.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE?

I would like to obtain my HSC next year and get accepted into Coffs Harbour Southern Cross University.
I also wish to continue playing with my Senior Womens soccer team next year and continue with Futsal in the off season. 

WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?

There are numerous people in my life that inspire me. I am inspired by the people in my life that push me to try my best and encourage me to be the best person that I can be. The person who inspires me the most would be my mum, she always wants me to do the best that I can and is the reason that I am able to play sports; she is at all my Futsal games and is my biggest supporter. Without her I don’t know if anything that I have achieved would have been possible.
