I'm a 19 year old fencer, also a student at the University of Witwatersrand. I have been fencing for the National Team for some years now. My favourite motto says *Do it ten times better than you did it the first time.* I always strive to do the best in whatever I do. My life is driven by achieving and pushing myself to the limits. I do not allow anything to stop me from reaching my desires! This trip means a lot to me. Representing my country on a worldwide scale has always been my dream. Your donation will help me achieve that dream. I want to set an example in my community encourage and motivate the young ones that their dreams are valid and nothing should ever stop them from achieving them. Fencing is my life and I could never have dreamt to do anything better in the Junior African Champs. I want to make my country proud and most of all make myself proud.
