I am Valerie Eng. I am a disabled mental health warrior. I have been on a wheelchair since 2018 due to a spinal cord injury and trauma to both my lower limbs. I dream of entering the paralympics as a wheelchair tennis player.
I aim to raise funds to purchase this ACE titanium wheelchair, which costs SGD$5800, to use for my wheelchair tennis trainings. The wheelchair can be found at http://www.offcarr.dk/en/carrozzina-da-tennis-personalizzata-con-telaio-in-titanio-robusta-flessibile-agile-scorrevole . I am currently borrowing a peer’s wheelchair for my training, which I can only borrow until 31 December 2020.
I am hardworking, committed, and driven, and will work hard to do well in the paralympics. I have been playing tennis since the age of 7, and I refuse to let my injuries rob me of my pride and joy.
Please believe in me and help me reach my paralympic dreams by helping me raise $5800 to afford this wheelchair. Thank you.
