At times it feels like a nightmare that I may wake up and find that this was all a dream, but in reality it is not!
Being as young as I am it is very rare to actually travel outside your country AND to represent the whole of South Africa in Brazil. It makes me wonder and search for what is so special about me, but at the same time it is an enormous feeling knowing that out of many young people, I was selected. I am so pround of my dedication and determination
I hope that Brazil will accept us for who we are and be warm, loving and welcoming. We are going to be in a big city in a big country so I think a lot about safety and crime and health but I believe that it will be okay. We are all from different countries and love, trust and respect will grow from all of us.
