My name is Kiril Panov, I am 19 years old and I am coming from Strumica, North Macedonia (small country in Eastern Europe). I finished high school in June 2018 as one of the best students having an average GPA of 9,47/10 and I have received Academic Excellence every year studying at IES L’Arabi Institute in Spain.
Apart of being A+ student, I am a successful basketball player, member and captain of Macedonian National team since 2014 (U14, U16, U18). I have been part of CB Terralfas located in Alicante, Spain, which qualified 3 times for the Spanish National Championship as a captain and leader of the team as well. My performances, plays and leadership led me to obtain various awards as one of the best players on my team in different categories.
I have been given an amazing opportunity to go to Kennedy Elite Basketball Academy in Cincinnati, Ohio for one year to study and play basketball on a high level. This academy is a great way to present myself in front of one of the best coaches and scouts across the country. This program provides me an enormous exposure and hopefully it will help me conquer my dreams.
Unfortunately, my parents salaries are not enough to cover my expenses and this is why I am asking for your generosity and help so I can achieve my dream of studying and playing basketball in the USA. This is a unique opportunity to improve my academic and sport skills, know a rich culture and pursuit my goal to play in the NBA. The only thing holding me back is the cost for this opportunity and coming from a very poor country is not helping at all. I decided to try to raise my own money for it and all of the funds will go for paying my flights, USA Visa, school material, daily expenses and medical insurance.
-plane tickets (1000$)
-daily expenses (12$ per day = 360$ a month x 8 months = 2880$)
-US Visa (160$)
-school material (130$)
-medical insurance (1600$)
I am very positive about this platform and I thank you for being part of my lifetime experience. Any donation would be greatly appreciated and well received.
