Welcome to My Rally Campaign
My name is Rui-James Jorge-Atha Pereira. My goal is to be the BEST soccer player that ever lived! I also want so much for me and my team to be the Best Soccer Team that we can be!
Why I'm Raising Funds
The opportunity to travel and receive soccer training from professionals in Spain and Portugal would be a once in a lifetime dream come true. Raising the funds for this traveling opportunity would be a great help financially.
How I Got Here
I have kicked a soccer ball since I was 11 months old. I have also played in The Baton Rouge Soccer Club since I was 7. First as an academy player and then as a competitive player since 4th grade. I am now in 9th grade and I play competitively for The Club’s Elite 03 Black Team. We have won several state cups throughout the southeastern part of the country. I am proud to say that I have assisted my team to victory as a forward, striker and mid-fielder.
I am a child from a single family home. My father is also disabled. As an African-American male in the United States I know that I must prove statistics wrong- and I will through my passion for soccer. My mother works hard to see to that as well as my entire family.
Also as a soccer player in South Louisiana, we have overcome several floods in our lifetime. But we have pulled together through our love for soccer and we have overcome so much together.
I would like to thank the entire Baton Rouge Soccer Club coaches and support staff for their undying support and I’d like to thank my family and friends for being my die-hard fan support base!
