WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?
I have been picked at 10 years old to play for the under 12 rep soccer team. At 11 and 12 I was chosen to play for the PSSA soccer team. And at 15 I started playing for the Womens B grade soccer team aswell as my normal Saturday club aged group soccer.
I have now been picked for a UK/ Scotland soccer tour in November 2019.
WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?
I applied for this grant as my dad is a single father affording this trip on his own with a given 7 weeks notice. This opportunity I have worked so hard for and I’d love to relieve my dad a little bit of financial pressure.
HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?
This grant will benefit me and my father by assisting with the finances for this trip. Given the short notice I plan to use this grant to assist with the trip price to help the overall cost.
WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?
Sam Kerr, the captain of the Matildas soccer team inspires me most. She plays the same position on the field as me and I hope to one day be able to be half the team player and captain she is.
