#future champion

Hi there, I am Shelly Draper and I am a figure skater from Sunny South Africa.

I fell in love with figure skating a few years ago and although people have said that I started too late, I believe that my drive, determination and 10 years of ballet has brought me to a point where, after only 2 years of skating,  I can start to see my goals becoming a reality.

My goals include becoming a national figure skater and then being able to perform on the same stages as people like: Gracie Gold, Ashley Wagner, Karen Chen and Evgenia Medvedeva.

To achieve my goals and compete competitively with girls who have been skating since they were 5 or 6, I will need to spend a lot of time on the ice (Ice time is expensive), with my coaches (also a costly affair), travel to training camps and competitions as well as fees etc., new outfits and equipment, medical and physio costs. For example, the Riedell boots and MK blades that I currently use cost approximately $1000 in South Africa. I will need to get 2 or 3 more pairs this year due to the amount of skating that I am planning on doing.

My dad has worked out that I am going to need $10 000.00 to be able to follow my dreams, which means that I need 1000 people to partner with me on this journey at only $10.00 each.

For those of you who join with me on this exciting journey, I am offering the rewards as detailed in the campaign information section.

Please contact my dad on, if you would like to contribute larger amounts to discuss any additional rewards.

If you would like to partner with me by contributing to my campaign, please follow the steps below and don’t forget to claim your reward. If you are unable to assist financially, PLEASE could you assist by sharing this campaign and its links to all your friends, family, work colleagues and if fact anyone you are connected with via all forms of social media, emails or even snail mail.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my campaign and I will put in all the effort required to make sure that your faith in me is not misplaced.
