Age: 31 Years

Height: 1,69 m

Star sign: Pisces

Occupation/Subjects studying at school/college: I am the proud owner of a small business with a team of 5 in the Health and Beauty Industry

What are you favourite hobbies and why?: I like to get creative when I am not working. Fashionable accessories get me excited. I managed to design and carefully hand crafted my own jewellery collection. When I am not designing, I also like to be active. I try to run either a 10k / 21km race every weekend, if possible. It is also something I can enjoy with my husband. I recently completed a course to do part time acting and modelling, and even though it is still in the beginning of my career, I thoroughly enjoy it.

What is your biggest ambition?: I am determined to live my life to the full. I like to take risks, and to take up new challenges, and with that I tend to follow my heart. Sometimes it is necessary to challenge the norm in order to create an opportunity to achieve success. Giving up is not an option. I have a loving God who has plans for me, and I believe that we are here for a purpose. I find myself reaching out to people often. Youth culture inspires me. It would be a dream come true to be able to start a NPO to help young adults who do not have funds to study in the field they are passionate about. There is a saying that I believe in: ” allow your passion to become your purpose and it will one day become your profession”

Charity you would nominate to receive 10% of our fundraising if you are the highest fundraiser, and your reasons why (Please include a web link to the charity if you have it): ORT SA, Education is more than basic schooling. It’s about empowerment and support. Only then can poverty be eradicated and meaningful lives built. Improving the standard of education, can help all to achieve a better life.

Languages Spoken or would like to learn: Afrikaans and English. I understand a little bit of German, but I would love to learn to speak more. I have a German Passport.

Countries you have visited: America, England, France, Switzerland, Ireland, China, Japan, Australia, India, Jamaica, Caribbean Islands, Africa.

Favourite Disney movie and why: Beauty and The Beast is my all time favourite movie. What I learn from it, is that you should never judge a book by its cover. I love the fairy tale- the songs, the love story, and the characters!
