Road to Junior World Cup 62639 Campaign
Dear prospective sponsor,
My name is Shanna Mendonça and I have the privilege of representing my country as part of the u21 South African hockey ladies side at the upcoming Junior Hockey World Cup taking place in Chile (29 November-11 December).
As a student-athlete on a sports bursary (at the University of the Witwatersrand), I understand that with a good support system, consistent hard work and the right mindset anything is possible.
Over the past year alone I’ve been awarded:
Gold medal at African Cup
Junior Player of the Tournament at senior IPT (Inter- Provincial Tournament)
Wits Ladies Hockey Player of the Year
Wits Junior Sportswoman of the Year
Playing in the world cup was a dream placed in my heart and mind by my 13 year old self. All the sacrifices, time, energy, and effort have gotten me to where I am today… but I haven't come this far, only to come this far.
Attending the Hockey World Cup is a self- funded program, therefore I am humbly asking for financial support in any capacity to make my dream a reality.
