I started athletics once I moved to Perth for high school because where I lived didn't have that type of opportunity. I picked up skills and techniques and always performed strongly in the hurdles. I have represented my state in multiple national championships over my time of doing athletics, my biggest achievement was winning the under 17 400mhurdles national title. It was from this race on I knew the event I wanted to achieve highly in, setting my goals for the future ahead. I took a big set back at the start of 2015 where I had a bad fall over a hurdle at training leaving me with a torn ligament in ankle and missing out on world youth championships. This injury has made me even more determined to get into the under 20 world champion ship team with being ever so close to qualifier.
Value to the Individual
With only being in the sport for a short amount of time, I have deffanitly experienced a lot. Learning the highs of the sport and knowing what it feels like to win gold to see all your hard work pay off and than to be injured and only seeing those around succeed. My injury was a huge step for me as a person as i truly understood how important athletics is to me, feeling almost lost without it. Working so hard to not only train but to afford the training and the expensive treatments was a struggle for my family, not being the wealthiest people we had to priorities our money. I believe athletics and sports has helped me to become the strong women I am today, to never give up on life when it gets hard and never give up on those around you.
Why the funds are needed
The money would help me and my family for paying for some of the Physio bills that weigh us down, paying for fuel to travel to training and back as we don't live close to training rather more than 40 minutes away. The money will be very helpful for me as an athlete to pay for those heavy bills that my family struggle to pay for the pricing of entering events and Physio, without even considering paying for equipment and uniform for me as an athlete.
My Instagram is my platform to help promote my self as an athlete to show those around me the type of athlete I am, I hope to inspire younger athletes like myself that anything is impossible but it's about patience and determination that help you achieve those goals
