World karate tournament CampaignMy name is Naazia Jardine, I am a 18 year old that completed my matric last year, I live in Eldorado park.
I am a survivor of bullying at school and at home by the kids in my comunity, at the time kids were going missing aswell, with all this happening, my mom felt hopeless not knowing how to keep me safe and out of harms way.
One day after school while doing my grade 5 some girls beat me bloody i landed up in hospital, my mom then met a couple that runs a karate school in my community, as my mom is an single unemployed mother and couldn't afford the fees, my mom explained to my now Sensai, that I didn't like fighting and at the time a victim of bullying, my mom was desperately looking to help me.
These kind people from BSK Tigers karate agreed and took me in to assist me. I needed to toughen up inorder to defend myself, as I did not like fighting, I decided this would be do or die time.
I started enjoying and loving, being able to defend myself from kids that were much bigger than me, I have pushed myself to be the best i can be, I am now a black belt.
That being said this is where my journey in karate started, I have now been selected to represent south african in the WUKF karate Tournament in Mexico.
My humble request is to help my mom in raising the funds for me to go to Mexico, next year.
My mom and I will also be raising funds the amount given has been an estimate of how much I will need.
