Stage 1


Hi! I'm Anja, I am 19 from Rotorua.

I was competitive in CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting for 3 years (2018, 19, 20)winning titles to my name such as 3x CrossFit open national champion for my age group in 2018, 2019 & 2020, 2x secondary schools Olympic Weightlifting champion in 2018 (u53kg) & 2019 (u55kg). Due to injuries, I have been unable to train and compete at the level needed to achieve such titles. This has given me the opportunity to focus on other areas of my life I feel I neglected while dedicating literally my entire life to training. I've loved getting to know what else I am capable of other than sports. I am thankful for the skills I learned and developed such as resilience and work ethic while being an athlete, they've helped with my everyday life.

I am so very grateful to be a part of the Pinnacle Programme and for all the opportunities and experiences that come with it. Thank you!
