Please Get Me To The USA!

My name is Mila and I am 12 years old. I have been skating since I was 5 and cannot imagine my life without it. Most mornings I wake up at 3:30 to be on the ice by 5:00. I then practice for 2 hours before heading off to school. Most people think I am crazy, but then again I don’t want to be “normal”.
Every time I step onto the ice I feel alive. Something greater takes hold of me and I am hypnotized by the sound of my blades on the ice. I feel graceful and beautiful. Figure skating is not easy and it has taken me a while to achieve my goals, but I will never give up. Skating has turned me into a fearless and brave athlete that can overcome anything and everything.
I have been given the opportunity to experience the Shattuck-St Mary’s Figure skating camp from the 15th to the 25th of June 2018. I have always dreamt of attending overseas camps and this camp will give me the opportunity to become stronger, more confident and to learn new and better techniques. Financially it is not easy as there is no sponsorship from the South African Figure Skating Association.
I truly hope with all my heart, skates and blades that someone would be able to help me get to the USA. An opportunity like this will never be forgotten and your donation or sponsorship will be treasured in my heart forever.
