I've always wanted to be an alpine mountaineer. Unfortunately, being isolated from alpine mountains and the limits of my own resources have hindered my aspiration to become one.

That's why I'm asking for your help to get me started by funding my alpine mountaineering course in Japan.

I don't intend on becoming a professional mountaineer anytime soon. But I've always dreamed of picking and kicking my way up snowy peaks. I believe that the ordeals I'd need to face just to reach the summit will aid in my own development as a human being.

At the same time, I want to help kickstart an alpine community here in the Philippines, for local mountaineering to get the evolution it so desperately needs. Additionally, I'd like for this trip of mine to raise awareness of all the hardships those living in Cebu's mountainous communities face.

I believe Japan is the perfect place to learn alpine mountaineering. Japan has produced some of the best alpine teams in the world and in history. Its close proximity to the Philippines also helps.

This mountaineering trip will mean so much to me, as it will open more opportunities for me to climb higher mountains all over the world, fulfilling my dream of becoming an alpinist in my own right.
