Hi, my name is Jade.

I've been playing basketball since grade 5. I enjoy playing the game so much that I went from grade school basketball to rep ball. I started with the Orillia Lakers in 2017. Then the pandemic hit. I then went and played with the Huntsville Hurricanes for 2 years. I'm now playing with the Midland Waves.

I have a recruiting profile with NCSA which is how Coach Lorie Khalil of Penn State University-Lehigh Valley found me. She sent me an invite to apply to possibly join Team USA (I know its not Team Canada, yet. ), on an International Tour in Germany and Austria in June. I decided to apply and see what would happen. Recommendations were uploaded. Thanks to Dr. Lawrence Lafrance and Andrew Fruchter, Teacher and Chef. Highlight videos and a short essay about myself were also added. I had an interview with Mike Spinner, tour coordinator from Student Athlete World. During that interview I was asked to be a part of the roster. Without any hesitation, I agreed.

I now need some help with additional funds to get to my flight (I leave from JFK, need to be there 5 hours before flight at 9:15 pm on Sun June 16 ), plus a few other essentials that I'll be needing. (Luggage, travel insurance, all the stuff for a long trip).

I'm looking forward to this great opportunity I've been given to meet new people and see new sights. Also to be able to play basketball on an International stage is frankly out of this world!

Your help is greatly appreciated and without a doubt will not be forgotten in this opportunity that I've been given to be an ambassador for women's basketball.
