Dear Friends and Family,

Last year was a huge success, largely thanks to you!  Last season, I was able to take advantage of many opportunities that otherwise would have been impossible without your support, including much needed international exposure.  These added opportunities helped significantly, and I finished the season reaffirming my position on the U.S. Rhythmic Gymnastics National Team.  The current 2014 season has been incredibly successful, and I’ve been blessed with many new and exciting experiences. 

For example, this week I was given the chance to train in Moscow, Russia in preparation for the upcoming World Cup competition in Tashkent, Uzbekistan taking place at the end of May.  This is such an exciting experience for me, and it is an honor to be representing my country and competing with many top gymnasts from around the globe.   

Once again I find myself humbly asking for your support.   While I am very grateful that the U.S. Gymnastics federation partially funds some of my competition expenses, it is extremely limited due to its own budget constraints.  Most of my travel expenses, training, leotards, equipment, physical therapy, coach fees, etc. are paid by my single mom, who has sacrificed everything for me to pursue my dreams.  As you can probably imagine, the costs have become overwhelming.

If you are able to contribute something, even a small amount, you would play an enormous part in helping me to pursue my rhythmic gymnastics dreams.  I promise that all money received will be spent specifically for my gymnastics expenses.  On my end, I will continue to dedicate myself to my sport, train hard, and honor your support and belief in me.  While my Olympic dream is alive, I will strive to achieve the smaller milestones along the way and continue to be a strong and proud member of Team USA!!

I want to sincerely thank you in advance for your continued support and belief in me!

xoxo,

Aliya
