About

Born blind, she attended the Pioneer School for the Visually Impaired in Worcester, away from her home town of Bloemfontein. She was the country’s top Matric achiever for people with special needs in 2012, and later studied Communications at the University of the Free State. She took up athletics in 2012 and competed in the 2013 National Championships. Her favourite quote is, “make dust or eat dust”.
