I can honestly say, that I never had a doubt in my mind about the outcome of this effort. I’m not saying this because I have rich family and friends, or because I begged or anything, but simply because I have such faith and love in the community around me. You guys have given me so much help when it comes to so many things, and this post is the least I could do to thank each and every one of you. I am truly blessed. Everyday I am thankful for the family and friends that I know. From the people I live with, to the people that live across the world, I know that I have a web of close connections that is always there when I need guidance, leadership, and support. This is what helps me in all of my endeavors whether it’s sports, school, or writing. Everybody I know has never led me astray, and as a result I had the opportunity that was laid before me. For those who are lost right now, a couple weeks ago I put out a post telling everyone about the chance I have to go to London in order to train with my soccer team for 10 days. The trip is all planned out by Adidas, and our team was lucky enough to train with top-level English teams in late July. As soon as heard, I was ecstatic, but I knew there was no way it would be free. Sure enough the trip costs two thousand dollars, and I needed it by a week before the trip. So, I decided to use thedarkerlens.com (TDL for short) to ask for support. And sure enough, I have successfully reached my goal! The level of excitement, happiness and appreciation that I am feeling right now is through the roof. I really can’t express in enough words how thankful I am for everyone I that donated in any way, and I will be sure to make you all proud. As I said before, an in-depth narrative about everything experienced in London will come as soon as I get back. Again, thank you all so much. WE DID IT!!!
