Give us a quick introduction to Elke?
I am a down to earth yet sassy girl. I am a straightforward (sometimes a little too much) and a genuine person. Whenever you need a kick in your step, this energetic gal will definitely brighten up your day.
If you could spend your free time doing just one thing, what would it be?
Shopping! Because a girl can never have too many clothes.
With summer now in full swing, what are you looking forward to most this season?
Getting back into my jogging routine, especially those promenade runs.
What are your perks of living in the Mother City?
There is always something to do, no matter what mood I’m in!
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
“They say good things take time… that’s why I’m always late”. I would really like to try and be a tad more punctual.
Tell us something most people don’t know about you?
I have my Springbok colours in singing.
What does the average day in the life of Elke consist of?
Rise-and-shine, study study study. Go for a afternoon jog. Cook for friends. Study. Sleep. (I used to have a social life).
What are your top five holiday destinations?
Jongensfontein, Maldives, Mozambique, Botswana and London.
Whats the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning, and the last thing you do before going to sleep?
Brew a cup of coffee. Take out my contact lenses.
What type of guy do you find yourself attracted to?
Tall dark and handsome. Someone who is outgoing and affectionate.
What’s your sure-fire way to strike interest from him?
Cooking is one of my forte and we all know the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but confidence is key and being a little bit sassy.
What does your ultimate fantasy consist of?
Traveling the world with my closest friends (without a single worry/ responsibility).
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when we mention:
First dates? Thrilling.
Beach? Jongensfontein (holiday home), and Bats and Balls.
