WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?

I have represented my Macleay Rep Netball team winning the State Championships in Sydney last year.
In January this year I was selected to play in the NSW indigenous Netball side coming 4th in the Comp.
Out of that I have been selected to Represent the Australia Indigenous Budgies on the Gold Coast in April which is a massive achievement.
I also just finished Rep trials for the Macleay again and was lucky enough to gain selection.

WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?

I have applied for this grant to help my Mum with the cost of all the traveling around for me to do what I love.
She is a single mum of 3 and my younger sister has been selected in rep this year as well so she has double the cost for that plus my Australia one. 

HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?

I plan to help my Mum cover what ever I can with it.
It all helps.
We have Accomodation, Fuel, Uniforms, Food. It adds up fast.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE?

I’m hope to continue to develop my skills to further pursue my netball as I love playing.
When I’m older I would love to play at the Olympics. 

WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?

My Family.

They are always there to support me and lend a hand
They watch me and give me advice as they all played when they were younger.
I love them.
