.Lizwi is the middle child
born between two brothers. She is a lovely young lady who lives and breathes
drummies. She started participating in the sport in Grade 1 and marched her
first competition in Grade 2, in 2017. She was one of the Juniors who made
history for the St Dominics Saintees team, winning nationals for the first time
in junior history. Although she was very timid when she started, her talent has
always been evident. She has since blossomed into a very defiant young lady.
She enjoys the respect and support of her peers due to her level of passion and
talent in the sport and mostly her ability to bring “the vibe” to the team. She
has proven herself to be highly dedicated and a team player. In 2022, she was
the subbie-leader for her school's junior team. As a subbie-leader, she created
a lot of the displays that were showcased at the national competition hosted in
Polokwane. Because of the great work she did in creating formations and
displays she has been asked by the Junior Coach to assist the current junior
team in preparation for the 2024 competitions. Not only is she assisting her
own school team, but she has also been involved in assisting a newly formed
team in the marginalised community of Reiger Park. She has been assisting them
during her school holidays, in creating displays and teaching the athletes mace
and baton skills.
Lizwi’s father has tried all he can to make Lizwi’s dream come true but circumstances
beyond our control have proven it very difficult to achieve this in the short
period of time left. Should there be any means of financial support for our
drummie-star we would highly appreciate it as a family. Funds will pay for her flights, accommodation and ad-hoc costs such as uniforms and consumables.
