Hi – I am Kari Steyn from the beautiful city of Cape Town, South-Africa. I have recently been selected to represent South Africa at the 4th FINA Women's Youth World Water Polo Championships in Belgrade, Serbia from 27 August to 2 September 2018.
Our team was successful in the qualifying tournaments and we are now ready to take on the rest of the world!
Unfortunately this amazing opportunity comes with those dreaded words “this is a self-funded tour”. It is with this in mind that I am using this platform to raise the funds necessary to make this dream become a reality.
I started playing water polo at age 13 and have since represented Western Province every year from U13 to U19. I am captain of my school’s 1st water polo team and play my club polo for Western Warriors where I am a member of the senior ladies team. We are the current South African champions after having won gold at the recent South African Water Polo Championships.
My love for water polo have made the sacrifice and hard work worthwhile and being selected to represent South Africa is a goal achieved and great honour.
It is with the utmost appreciation that I would like to ask to please help me fund my journey to Belgrade.
