“If I hadn’t got involved in Sporting Communities, I honestly believe I’d be behind bars by now.”
Dani started as a participant at Sporting Communities sessions in 2013. Coming from a disadvantaged community Dani faced a number of social challenges. She unfortunately also faced a number of health issues leading her to have a lot of anger and lack of coping strategies.
With Sporting Communities ongoing support, Dani has overcome a number of life barriers and instead developed the drive to make a difference within her community and inspire other young people. She is now a great role model, especially for young girls and in 2016 received the Children and Young People Now 'Children's Achievement Award'.
