My Story

From a young age, I fell in love with the game. What started as a sporting hobby developed into a strong ambition to play at the highest level. I remember watching the Perth Wildcats and the Boomers at the Olympics in awe of the skill, teamwork, and dedication of the players. I knew then that this was where I wanted to take my basketball.


My Journey

Since that moment of realisation, I have dedicated myself to improving every aspect of my game. Early mornings, late nights, and hours in the gym have become my lifestyle. I’ve participated in numerous local and national tournaments, perfecting my skills and gaining valuable experience. My commitment to training and my performance on and off the court have earned me recognition and several accolades, but I know there's still a long way to go.

Why I Need Your Help

To reach my goal of playing college basketball in the US, I am participating in the AUSA United States Basketball tour, where I will be playing an AAU tournament to showcase my skills in front of scouts, and potentially secure a scholarship. This process involves significant costs, including travel expenses, camp fees, training programs, and more. Because of my basketball commitments and studies, I am also unable to work a part time job to help with the costs.

I am reaching out to you, my community, for support. Your contributions will help cover:


Travel Expenses: Flights and accommodation to and from the USA for AUSA hoops.

Training Programs: Advanced training to ensure I am at my peak performance.

Equipment: High-quality gear to help me compete at the highest level.

Other Costs: Any additional expenses related to achieving my dream.


Breakdown of costs:

· Accommodation, ground transport and meals $6,750

· Individual Training and Tour Preparation $6,000

· Airfares $5,075

·  Meals $1,400

· Uniforms $465

· VISA and Insurance $750

Total $20,440



Why This Means So Much to Me

Playing college basketball in the US is more than just a goal; it’s a lifelong dream. Achieving this dream would not only be a testament to my hard work and dedication but also an inspiration to others who dare to dream big. Your support will not just help me; it will show that dreams are worth pursuing, no matter how challenging they might seem.
