Ainsley Proffit- Alpine D

September 19, 2018 2 Comments

My name is Ainsley Proffit, I was recently named to the US Ski Team and I am raising money to offset the costs of the 2018-2019 ski season. Currently the US Ski Team gets zero government funding to help guide athletes to the Olympics, so I am asking for your support to help me continue my race career.

I am from St. Louis, Missouri. I started skiing through public NASTAR races, and then found out about a ski team located in St. Louis called Hidden Valley. I joined the team when I was eight, and trained there every day until I was 12. The Hidden Valley Ski Team introduced me to racing and our family would travel to WIJARA and USSA Races throughout Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and Iowa. Competition stakes started to get higher, so I looked for training facilities out West. There, I could challenge myself by training and racing at a higher intensity on the large mountains compared to my little hill at home. Since making the move west to train and compete during the winter, I was named to the Rocky Mountain All-Star Team, the West Elite Team and ultimately now to the US Ski Team. I now spend the race season in Lake Tahoe, California training with Sugar Bowl Academy during the winter months.

Last season I started racing the FIS circuit. At the FIS level, you are competing against people of all ages and become ranked internationally. I claimed my first win at Snowbird, Utah in the Slalom event back in January. As I continued into the season, racing just got better and better. Soon enough Nationals arrived, and it was my turn to compete head to head with the best of the United States. I earned 10th in Slalom, 13th in Alpine Combined, and 14th in Super G. By the end of the 2017-2018 ski season I earned a Top 5 World Ranking for Slalom, and a top 5 in all disciplines in the USA for my age.

This year I have goals of achieving even more success and hope to earn a place competing at the World JR Championships. Training and competing at the international level this season will present many challenges, and your support will greatly help me build success and reach new levels of competition.

Thank you for your time and support, donations directly fund my training, travel and competition expenses. Please follow my progress this season on Facebook @ainsleymproffit and Instagram @ainsley_proffit for continued updates.

Hey, ainsley_proffit!

Want to be Instagram famous?

If you’re like me, you have scrolled through Instagram, wondering “how do these darn people on Instagram get so rich and famous”?

Imagine: It’s Friday morning and you’ve promised yourself you’d hit the gym today.

Roll over, check your cellphone.

Hit the Instragram App.

Youare surprised at what you see: Over 832 likes on one of your pictures! There, you see a flurry of likes on your pictures—over 738 on a single photo alone.

You put your fuzzy slippers on and head to the kitchen for some coffee. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again.

Bam! Another 63 likes.

And another message just popped up. It’s from some follower asking about your life, and giving you daps on your twelve official month of going to the gym.

A smirk makes its way on your face as you see another message. This person emailed you to let you know she loves your posts.

Within minutes, your phone buzzes AGAIN.

It’s another message coming in. You glance up at the clock—almost time for the gym. You will have to hit them up later.
Anyways, you get the point. This is the life of an Instagram celebrity. I should know, because I’ve made many of them.

My job is to take people from Instagram nobody to Insta-celebrity. (It sounds ridiculous, but results do not lie.)

Imagine if you raised your engagement by 100%, or 1000%?

It’s not difficult to do, although almost no one does. Just visit our website. There, you will learn how to garner Instagram likes and followers like mad…effortlessly.

In just minutes after posting, you have your images piled with likes.

With this you have a big chance to be featured in the “Top Post” section.

And because we love you, we made testing things out as simple as kitchen-cooled apple crumble:
1. Visit
2. Plug your Instagram username.
3. 10 – 15 likes will be sent to your 3 most recent pictures. Just like that.

Being a everyday name on that page will accelerate your growth 10x, easy. But if you want the fame, you’ve got to reach for it. Are you ready?

Happy image-uploading.
