Louella Barnes the Junior Olympican
Organized by: Fields Monica
EVENT DATE Aug 01, 2016
I'm a single mom with a young student athlete. Louella and I got into track and field because I was losing my child to social media and boys. I didn't know what to do. So my daughter suggested track and fields. So being that I was desperate and crazy I said yes. I did not know that we had to get to a lot of track meets out of town because this is my first time doing sports. You see, I didn't have that luxury when I was growing up. Nevertheless, my daughter is doing GREAT in track and she's in the Shot Put event. My daughter competed in the AAU West Coast Junior Olympic in Reno, NV and qualified in the Shot Put event to travel AAU Junior Olympic Championship in Houston TX. I can't afford to get my daughter to TX and it's very important for her and me to attend But competing in the Junior Olympic can take my Louella to places neither she nor me could ever dream of. And why is important to me because I don't want to lose my child or my sanity to nothing or no one. I would like to thank you in advance for your understanding and help. Sincerely One Single and Proud Mom.
