My name is Abriella Bredell.
I am 10 years old, and I live in Jeffreys Bay.
My goal is to swim the Robben Island Channel this December in order to raise funds for my favourite charity, The Red Cross Children's Hospital.
My aim is to set the world record for the youngest person to take part in this event.
I am a learner at Victory Christian School in Jeffreys Bay and I have been training at Brenton’s Swim School and Liquid Lines since I was only two years old.
I love swimming because I am a very competitive person and enjoy swimming races against other people and improving my times. I like learning new things, keeping fit and taking care of my body. Swimming does all of the above for me.
I train 6 times a week and love the open water swimming at Marina Martinique in Jeffreys Bay.
My ultimate goal in swimming is to practise hard and to swim the Robben Island Channel with my coach, Brenton Williams. My favourite stroke is butterfly, but I thinks my first Robben Island crossing will be freestyle.
I have started to surf in cold water, so think I will be able to swim Robben Island this December.

The Children's Hospital Trust
The Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital is the only specialist hospital dedicated entirely to children in southern Africa and manages 260 000 patient visits annually. Very sick children are referred to this world-renowned tertiary institution from all over South Africa and the African continent.
Since 1994, the Children’s Hospital Trust, the Fundraising Arm of the Hospital has helpd raise funds for building upgrades, new equipment and skills development programmes. As the Hospital was built in 1956 the outdated facilities were in critical need of upgrading. Despite this the Hospital is world-renowned as a centre of excellence in paediatric health-care and research.
100% of donations received by the Trust go directly to the Hospital, not a single cent is spent on administration costs.
