Ciao!

About me?

I am known as 'The Rock' after Dwayne Johnson and yes, as you can say I am a huge fan of him! He has admired and inspired me so much. I was born with Cerebral palsy (CP) but I am happy to accept for who I am and I played a sport called Boccia! I love playing it, so much fun and I am a current 4-times South Africa Boccia Champion (2014, 2015, 2017, 2019). I have been playing since 2010 which I started at the age of 13! My main goal is I am hoping to complete in some overseas tournaments soon, in order to get an international ranking to qualify for Paralympic in 2024. Fingers crossed!

 

Here are my Boccia results from 2010 to present:

Currently ranked 97 in the world in Boccia

Not only that I played Boccia but I also played chess too! I played it on online and I played in some tournaments as well. Not to forget that I am a member of the chess club.

 

Well, what I want to study in the future? I am currently studying to become a Python Programmer as well as Cybersecurity as I am passionate and love computer so much as well as Mathematics too. I am looking forward to a bright future!

I will leave it with my inspirational poem, I hope you will enjoy reading it!

 

I was born disabled...
By Brett Dakin


I was born disabled...
but
I changed 'disability' into 'ability'
and when I look in the mirror...
I see myself dancing with my partner,
not in a wheelchair
nor with support.
I walk not for myself
But to make my family proud of me...
I say anything is possible.
Of course!
Remember...
If you want to reach your dream...
you must never give up
and keep improving each day.

 

Here are some of the quotes I want you to keep in mind:

"I am stronger than my disability." ~ B. Dakin
"Nothing is impossible, anything is possible." ~ B. Dakin
"When I walk to you, I just want to make sure your heart is beating alive." ~ B. Dakin

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started." ~ Mark Twain

“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!” ~ Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
