The Western Leader ran a story about the Ranui resident on Febru- ary 4. Despite not having any funding, Charles trialled for the under-20 men s national squad and was selected. The 18-year-old then began doorknocking businesses around west Auckland in the hunt for sponsorship. Charles says he wants to show young west Aucklanders they can achieve when they set themselves a goal. I think my dad wanted me to get a nice office job. But I want to show the youth of west Auck- land that you can achieve your dreams, he says. That was enough to convince the Waitakere Rotary Club to donate the point guard a $500 cheque. Rotary youth and com- munity director Patrick Howard says the club was more then happy to help him out. As a result of the Western Leader article, we started a collection for Charles for two reasons, he says. First he wanted to be an example for other youth to achieve, and secondly he represents a sport which Waitakere Rotary has supported over the years. Now with enough funds Epati is in training camp with the squad and is grateful to Waitakere Rotary and businesses for assisting him. I feel very thankful.
