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!

 

Want to join some of my awesome groups/clubs? Then you are more than welcome to because I need some chess players like you! But most importantly is have fun and makes new friends!

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.
