I am Samantha Harding and I am 20 years old. I live in the Eastern Cape a small city called Port Elizabeth in South Africa.
I am a Personal Trainer at a local gym - Edge fitness. I inspire young ladies to get into fitness and look after themselves from a young age. I love doing powerlifting and to show all the ladies that you do not need to be built big to do any sport in a man's world. I have been doing powerlifting for the last 4 years and won a whole lot of gold medals and trophies to show off my hard work and my love for the sport.
I have been selected to represent South Africa at the African Powerlifting Championships in October 2019 and to compete against some of the best powerlifters in the world. My inspiration for this campaign is to get enough funds to compete at an International platform to gain experience with the rest of the world. My biggest dream is to compete at the Worlds next year in Czech Republic, Belarus, USA(Birmingham) and Norway.
Funds will need to be raised by the 25th of September 2019. Funds will be used as follows:
- Entry fee - R2670
- Accommodation - R1600
- Transport - R10000
- SA Kit - R3730
- Food - R2000
- Coach - R2000
I will be able to represent my country at an international competition which is a great way to gain experience in the sport and to grow as a lifter and powerlifting coach. I will be proud to wear the South African colours with pride.
