My name is Shanti. I am a level 6A rhythmic gymnast from Canada. I have been doing gymnastics since I was 10 years old. Gymnastics helps me cope with my mental health and feels like an escape from the world around me.
I am looking for a sponsor because gymnastics has been a part of me for 9 years of my life. I was diagnosed with depression when I was 15 and going to gymnastics has helped me cope with that significantly. This year has been hard enough with Covid and recently hearing I'd have to quit gymnastics if I can't pay for last years and this years training. I am a hard worker and I never give up. I come from a family full of gymnasts and it has become a part of me to not give up easily for what I love. Not only that, I was also given the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam with a gymnastics team called Manitoba Fusion in August 2023.
