Hi! My name is Pat and I'm 19 years old. I made this go fund me in order to raise funds for my figure skating. I started figure skating when I was around 7 years old and skated for almost 5 years. Unfortunately, I had to stop due to the fact that my family and I moved to a place that didn't have any ice rinks. Now that we have moved to a place with an ice rink nearby, I would love to continue my passion for this sport.
I am currently looking for a part-time job as well in order to pay for my skating and help out with my college tuition. My college tuition alone is already too pricey for my mother as for the fact that she has been, and still is, a single mom. She has been the only one providing for me and my grandmother since I was little.
A few people have been telling me to stop skating because it's complete nonsense, but I can't let that happen. I love skating. Ever since my first step on the ice, I had already fallen in love with it. It has become my passion and it keeps my mind at ease.
The estimated costs of everything are the following: Skates and blades; $500, Coaching; $70/six sessions, Blade guard and soakers; $50, Skating day pass; $10.
I also want to get back on the ice because it has been my dream to compete in national competitions so that I can represent my country and make my family proud by doing what I love.
I love skating more than anything else in the world and I would really appreciate any support that you can give me so that I can reach these dreams of mine. I will try my very best to not only do good in my skating dreams, but also in my studies so that in the future, I can give back to all of those who have helped me get to where I will be.
Thank you so much!
