In your eyes, what is the best thing about being a Cape Town girl?
Cape town has a lot of opportunities and I live in a city that everyone wants to live in.
Besides the mountain and the awesome beaches, what else does Cape Town have that other city’s don’t?
Recently I have noticed that Cape Town has the most amazing sunsets. It also has the most tourist attractions.
If you had to relocate anywhere else in South Africa, where would you go and why?
Sunny Durban. I recently relocated back to Cape Town after I lived in Durban for 3 years. It has the warmest sea water and friendly people.
You obviously keep in shape and are very good at it. What are some of your secrets
Well I am a 400m hurdler, so my secret would definitely be the fact that I run 9 times a week.
What party of your body do you think is the sexiest?
I like my legs the most.
“Well if I tell you it wouldn’t be a secret, but there’s a lot more to me than just a pretty face”
Do blondes really have more fun?
I don’t think your hair colour determines the amount of fun you have, but blond girls do have the best personalities. [winks]
Do you consider yourself the shy type or more of the wild type?
Not many people know this about me, but I am actually really shy.
What’s one of the craziest things you have done?
Well I haven’t done anything crazy yet, but going to go shark cage dive on my birthday.
What’s your idea of a good time?
I’m not really a party girl. I like keeping up with the latest events and like to explore new places. I’m a Afrikaans girl so just take me to go sokkie. [smiles]
What words of wisdom that you take to heart?
Someone once told me that you should always try be better then the previous day. This applies to everything in life. Also with God all things are possible – matt 19:26.
