Welcome to my story.

Don’t let depression and addiction get in the way of your dreams.


Amber has always felt a deep connection to water. Whether it
be the seas, rivers or lakes, Amber feels drawn to them all. This is my story.

“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself.
For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our
circumstance but by our disposition.”Martha Washington

Help me break the World Record!

My name is Amber and I currently hold three South African freediving records. My goal this year is to break the Guinness World Record for under-the-ice dynamic breath-hold (apnea) swim. The record is currently held by Johanna Nordblad and I will be swimming against her in a challenge scheduled for 21 March 2019 in Finland. I will be representing South Africa and raising awareness of how to reach your dreams despite the battle of depression and addiction.

My journey to recovery has not been easy, but having the world record as a goal is forcing me to face a lot of fears and tap into my inner strength to push my mind and body to the limit

I will need 11 000 pounds for logistics, transport and training to achieve this goal. All donations will directly help me fund my expenses. By contributing, you will help me to become a world record holder for my country, South Africa, and help show the rest of the world that mental illness can be overcome.
