I remember the time when I was not selected for the provincial team, I was very hurt but I never gave up because I knew what I wan-ted.“I went back to my trainer Mrs Mlotshwa and we started training again and I was back on track. I want to see myself playing for the national team one day or become the first black coach in the top level of netball .”Shezi is not only a netball player but she is also a netball coach at Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High and Pelham School.
