“Be the change you want to see.”  

This quote resonates with me a lot. It fuels my drive as a catalyst for transformative change. By challenging the status quo and taking action to create a better future for all, we can inspire others to do the same. I believe that change starts with us, and I am committed to creating positive change in the systems around me to help build a better world for everyone.

South African Social Media Award for the Best Travel Personality of the Year category, 2022

As a child, my grandmother’s dedication to her day job and passion for sewing left a lasting impression on me. Watching her work tirelessly to provide for our family while pursuing her dreams inspired me to work hard and strive. She taught me the importance of never giving up on my dreams.

If I had the chance to advise my younger self, I would prioritise pursuing my passions and not be afraid of taking risks. I would encourage my younger self to believe in my potential and embrace life fully.

I would like to see a more inclusive, prosperous, and sustainable South Africa. A country that is crime free, with reduced poverty, and equality, that uses renewable energy, crime-free and that gives more opportunities to women.
