Reeghan de Bono | Sport2021
I am a passionate, motivated sportswoman who has a willingness to accept and face challenges, learn new skills and extend my skill repertoire from hard work and perseverance. I have been apart of team sports from a young age including touch football, volleyball, basketball and netball, the environment of team sports is one that I love and have gained a broad range of skills and knowledge which continues to grow with every team I am involved in.
Over the years, my love for netball has grown, which has lead to my involvement at my local club, continuing on to represent my state and then making the National U17 Netball Squad in Australia. Since moving to New Zealand, my selection into the Aotearoa Maori Netball Squad, the NZSS Development Camp and being identified as a New Zealand U21 Player, has provided me with great amounts of opportunities to train, play and compete against some people with amazing talent.
I have a strong work ethic and am a very tenacious person with a willingness to accept and face new challenges while striving for excellence in everything I do and always seeing things through to the end, giving 100% in everything I put my mind to.
Passion to me gives me a reason. A reason to keep learning and to keep working hard, if I didn’t have passion, I wouldn’t be putting the hard years in and I wouldn’t have goals and dreams. My whanau is a massive part of my why, they are the reason why I am where I am today, and they have played a massive role in shaping me to become the person I am. The support and encouragement from my family have guided me in reaching my goals not only in netball but in my everyday life.
