Steps for my career CampaignI am Zander Drake and I have been in love with rugby ever since I could walk. Rugby isn't just a sport for me. It is my life, my passion and my dream
My journey with rugby began when I was just a toddler barely able to stand on my own two feet. My dad gave me a tiny rugby ball and I clutched it with al the determination a little kid could master. That moment the seeds of a lifelong dedication to this incredible sport were planted.
As I grew so did my love and passion for rygby. I played for school teams, joined local clubs and spent countless hours practicing. The early morning and late nights on the field were not just training they were steps on the pathway realising my dream. I knew I want to become a national rugby player someday.
Now as I stand on the precipice of a life changing opportunity I need your support. I've been selected to represent a South African team on a rugby tour to the Netherlands. An oppertunity to take my skills to the next level and an inch closer to my dream of wearing a Springbok rugby jersey.
There is more to this story than just rugby, it is about the people who have shaped my journey. My family who believed in me even the times that I didn't. It is about my teammates that became a second family, pushing me to be better everyday. Those unforgettable matches where we came together as one. Those games that taught me the true meaning of teamwork and perseverance.
Now I am asking for your help to make this dream a reality. Your support will not only fund my overseas tour but also contribute to a future were I can represent our nation with pride and passion. Every contribution no matter how big or small, brings me closer to that dream.
Join me on this incredible journey. Together we can make this hartwarming dream a reality. I promise to give my all to the sport and the dream I've cherished since my first steps. Thank you for being oart of my rugby journey.
