My quest for Korea:

As a member of the US Paralympics Archery World Championship team, I was the first visually impaired archer to represent the United States in international competition in Cheongju, Korea, October 1 through 10, 2007.

Thanks to the support of so many people, I had the opportunity to experience the chance of a lifetime.  I finished in 3rd place in the FITA competition, breaking five womenís world records.  I was thrilled to then make it to the gold medal round, winning the silver medal and ranking second overall in the world. 

Iím so glad I took the time to keep a journal while I was there and post it on the internet for family and friends to keep up with the events as they happened.  I never would have remembered most of the things that happened and it is great to relive the experience every once in a while.  Please feel free to read it by clicking the link below.
