Video: We Are Who We Become - Robyn

We Are Who We Become is a campaign that uses videoclips, a website and a book to promote the role of sport in empowering young people and encourages organisations to use sport as a tool for development. This is Robyn's story.

Robyn (12) is a female rugby player. She has recently developed an interest in the sport.

On the pitch she feels strong. On the pitch she is free from some of her previous struggles at school, dealing with bullying.

Robyn was introduced to rugby through a foundation that believes in sport as a tool for personal and social upliftment, health and wellbeing. Sport is used as a medium to engage children in physical activity, absorbing its values and benefits.

To them sport is not just a game; it is a set of life lessons. And this set of lessons stimulates leadership, mutual respect and understanding.

‘We Are Who We Become’ is a campaign by International Sports Alliance, Right To Play The Netherlands, KNVB Worldcoaches and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs that celebrates the power of sport for development. Because sport unites young people around the world and helps them build their future.
