What challenges does Tanya face?

One of the biggest challenges Tanya faces is the riskiness of this game. Sometimes back she fell off 100 feet and hurt her feet and back so bad. Only after some months of the accident was he able to walk again. Despite this challenge, she would never look back on this sport. Nothing would deter her from participating in it because she still does.

The other challenge is financial constraints. For instance, buying a biker and a gear to participate in a tournament costs around $900 to $1500. On top of this, you have to include the money for the ticket to abroad. Sometimes Tanya has to miss a competition simply because she cannot afford it.

Giving back to society

Just recently, Tanya gave 45 students scholarships in a local school in Zimbabwe. Because she understands how it feels to have financial constraints, she is in the best position to help. The most students she supported were girls since she perceived the most vulnerable are girls. For example, when parents have financial struggles, they would prefer to send the boys to school as the girls wait at home. So, Tanya uses the money from her winning and other bonuses to help out the needy in the society. In the year 2020, she has hopes to sponsor more than 500 students. With such an inspired young lady, this is very possible.

Tanyaradzwa Mutinda hopes to inspire girls to pursue the sport. In spite of the popular belief that the sport is for boys, they should never relent. She has received feedback many times that she can tell that the sport is for boys. Additionally, it’s viewed as an expensive sport that Africans cannot afford.
