My name is Natashia Angolique Siebert and I am a 36 year old Adaptive Para-surfer from Amanzimtoti,South-Africa

I have been fortunate to be selected to represent our Country in the ISA World Parasurfing championship in Huntington Beach California,from the 5th to the 11th of November 2023.

AN ABSOLUTE DREAM COME TRUE!!

I would really appreciate a "wheel" up in support to realise that dream.I humbly plead for any assistance in helping me get to California (USA)for the World Championship.

After a tragic event in 2018 which left me paralyzed from my chest down,I knew that I needed to grab and appreciate every opportunity given to me.I discovered Made for More in 2019."

Since 2019 I have trained tirelessly,in and out the water,learning the surfing basics and how to maneuver to the best of my capabilities and abilities.

In 2021, I entered my very first surfing competition,KZN Champs...I placed second and from that moment,I knew I was hooked!In 2022 I went out fighting and managed to win my first Kzn title!!And i wasn't going to give my title up in 2023 either and won the Kzn title yet again!

2022 I also took part in the South African Para surfing Championship held in Durban,taking a very respectable 2nd place...and once again in 2023 I managed a very hard fought 2nd.It was held in Cape Town (Muizenberg)

This is where I got the chance to represent my Country in California.

Representing South Africa has been a dream since I started competitive surfing.Its an honour to have been selected..

If you decide to render me any assistance,there are two ways:

Please be my "wheel" up by contributing to my BackaBuddy campaign(Any amount no matter how small would be of great importance and help to make my dream a reality)or if you aren't in a position to assist financially,PLEASE give me a lift up by sharing my campaign with friends and family.

The cost of the trip to California is estimated at R70000 

Sadly we have been given a cut off date and with funds not coming in i will need to take on this journey alone without my carer...

Return Flights.          R22152

Accommodation.     R32553.71     

Day to day expenses are hard to calculate at this moment...

 

I just wanna thank you in advance

Love Natashia
