Pamela Rosa is desperate to compete at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 and be the kind of role model she never had as a young, female skateboarding fanatic growing up on the tough, inner-city streets of south-eastern Brazil.
Brazil’s Pamela Rosa may be only 19 years old, but the wannabe Olympian has already faced a long, demanding journey to reach the top tier of women’s skateboarding. Born into a low-income family in Sao Jose dos Campos, Rosa has fought a lack of facilities, financial resources and widespread support to claw her way towards the ultimate sporting stage.
Skateboarding changed my life completely, it helped me a lot with school and with how I interacted with other people. It’s been an inspiration to me. Pamela Rosa Brazil - Pamela Rosa Brazil
