Living a dream

Dear Editor:

Ever since I came to Aspen in 2006, I’ve had a dream that I could make a living on skiing. Living in this valley had enabled me to ski with the AVSC freestyle team, where I have made a lot of friends and learned a lot about freestyle skiing. I am so grateful to have had this chance, as skiing is a passion for me, a passion that I share with almost half the world.

I would like to make a special thanks to The Elks Club, as they have granted me the opportunity to continue training with the AVSC in the form of a scholarship. I am now able to carry on with a future that I would have only dreamed about for almost half of my life. I am honored for this opportunity.
