The first strike of the wind came through
the island. I pulled my head, I pulled my leg and my knees
on my chest. Hit the ground. The program has given me a purpose in many
ways. Deep inside me I am so proud. Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people. In a way, that little else does. It speaks to youth, in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was
only dispair. It changes my perspective on life. Just believe in yourself. If I can do it, you can do it.
