Curriculum Vitae


I am a final year Civil Engineering student at the University of Stellenbosch and I have been in Sonop Ladies' Residence for 4 years.   Originally I live in a small town,  Jeffreys Bay in the Eastern Cape where I also grew up and matriculated.  I always like to maintain a healthy balance between my professional, personal and active life. I am very passionate about my sport and I also like to give extra math classes to High School learners.  I have a sense for adventure and  love being outdoors.  I am loyal, hardworking and passionate about life and I am looking forward to my future as an engineer.
