Besnik "Nik" Sokoli is 36 years old and lives in Brooklyn, New York with his wife, three children and mother in a one bedroom apartment.
Nik is a war refugee from Kosovo and works as a superintendent for an apartment building the Dumbo section of Brooklyn.
in January 2017, he entered a skiing competition; although he hadn't been on a pair of skis in 20 years, he surprised himself (any everybody else) by winning the race. That race lead to another and another until he decided with the blessings of his wife and family to train for the 2018 Olympic Games in alpine skiing.
Nik and his family need your help. Please consider making a small donation.
