Comfort Mawela

Lives: Pretoria
Age: 34

I am visually impaired and grew up in a household with my grandmother and mother who supported me and taught me to stand up for myself, no matter my disability. I started my journey of playing goalball and being a coach. I also play musical instruments and dance. I started with fitness in 2018.

Voting is now closed! The top 32 will be announced Monday 20 September at 13:00

I inspire myself by not needing pity from anyone. I just need to be treated like everybody else. I stand up for myself and I am independent, which makes me feel like I am not blind, which is so refreshing. I experience so much negativity, but I lift my head up, smile and continue with my journey. I believe I can go further.

How fitness fits into her lifestyle:

Fitness fits into my lifestyle in terms because I am a healthy person. I inspire a lot of people in my life because they see how regular activity has improved my quality of life.

Her fitness goals:

I want to reach other people and change their minds by showing the world that anything is possible, no matter your disability.
