LGBT Athlete Scholarship
Organized by: Serah Wright
Anastasia, a lesbian and dedicated hockey player, is trapped in her house with homophobic parents and no way to pay her pre-olympic hockey training tuition. Her parents refuse to help her pay to go to a specialized hockey training school. Anastasia has worked hard to try to earn the money herself, but between supporting her own financial needs and paying the application fees, she doesn't have the money to cover the tuition. On July 10th, 2015, Anastasia was offered a spot on HTI's hockey league. (http://www.hockeytraininginstitute.com/). Even with financial aid, she will need $30,000 to attend. Anastasia has done the hard work of training and dedicating herself, now we have a chance to help out a future olympic hockey player who could make history for the LBGT community.
