2000 Olympic Games
Sydney, Australia


Due to the extensive cost of training I am asking that you sponsor me in my quest to the Olympic games. Since I graduated from the University of Michigan I have supported my dream of making the Olympic games. I have waited tables, worked for Imagination Plus (computer graphics firm), performed duties as a nanny, took on odd jobs, taught diving lessons, performed in diving shows, made a few commercials, I did what I needed to do to pursue my goal. Now that I have made the Peruvian Olympic Team I thought my worries for finances would be over. On the contrary, my expenses will exceed myself if I am to train the way I need to train. I can not wait tables until 1am to 2 am in the morning and expect to perform at a high level of diving the next morning. I need to be able to train full time from now until the end of the Olympic games. Therefore, I am asking for your financial support. At the bottom I list my expenses and I estimate them to be around $50,000 to $60,000. As you can see I could never accomplish this on my own. Any amount donated is appreciated. Thank you for allowing me a few minutes of you time. Viva Peru!!!!
