Kai Naudi will be braving the waters between Gozo and Malta as part of the Brave the Wave challenge. The 13-year-old aims to undertake the feat for charity and to raise awareness about victims of bullying. He seeks to show how bullying can be overcome and that things will eventually turn out for the better after he managed to do so himself. “Bullying made me feel excluded, tired, hurt, and rejected. I reached a point when I didn’t want to go to school. But I had to fight it and so I decided to challenge myself to show that I can be who I want to be. The challenge is till you take the plunge. Then, it just flows….” – Kai Naudi said on his Brave the Wave Facebook page.
The charity will raise money for NGOs Inspire and bBrave. Kai’s coach, Jeffrey Galea, revealed that the youth has been training for over a year to undertake the challenge. Kai picked bBrave as one of the NGOs as it combats bullying, something Kai had to overcome. Training six days a week for two hours each day, Kai hopes to be an inspiration for all. And it already seems to be shaping out that way. We wish him all the best for this challenge! Those wishing to donate can message 50618926 (for €6.99) or 50619215 (for €11.65).
