Hey guys, my name is John, and I could really use this scholarship. It would be a lifesaver for me. I have been homeless/living out of my car for about a year now, and my jiu-jitsu family is literally my reason for being. Without BJJ, I would be so lost. Depressed and sad with no outlet for my aggression. Jiu-jitsu is my passion. Its what I live to do. I have an amazing Coach in Vitor Shaolin Ribeiro. He is a 5 time World Champion as I am sure you know. But more importantly, he is like a father and mentor to me. He has never let me give up on myself, backs me up in all that I do, and gives me hope for a brighter future. I train 3-4 days a week, and my gym is almost an hour away. I work a full time job, and I am having a really hard time making it to train a lot of days. Some days, I give up food for jiu-jitsu. I am having a difficult time saving to get a place of my own, and fees for training and competing sometimes cripple me. However, I wouldn't give it up for the world. I need all the help I can get. Shaolin and my brothers I sweat and bleed with every day are my family, and I exist to honor them and fight beside them. If you could find it in your heart to grant me this scholarship, it would finally be a ray of light that would help me have faith in better things to come. While other opportunities have passed me by, I am hoping that you will see my potential. You and your brand will not be disappointed. For then you will be a part of the jiu-jitsu family that saved me as well. Thank you so much for this opportunity, and I hope that you give me this shot. I will not let you down. Thanks again, John
