8. What's your guilty pleasure? Salted Caramel Häagen-Dazs.

9. What do you do in your spare time? I thrive in a natural environment. I will always find myself hiking, camping or travelling. I absolutely love sports and play action hockey. I am a people's person and enjoy quality time with my friends and family.

10. Name two of your female role models and why? Michelle Obama, who is a woman helping to change a nation for the better, advocating for women to receive education around the globe. And Meghan Markle, who is someone who has always stayed true to herself, no matter her circumstances.

11. Tell us a bit more about your family. I am the youngest of three siblings. My brother (25) and sister (27) are both attorneys, conveyancers and notaries. My mom Ninette has been working at FNB for over 30 years and is currently an area manager. She started studying law at 18 and couldn't continue after her first year but now at the age of 50 she is a final year LLB student.

She taught me to never give up on your dreams and to be resilient. My father also worked at FNB for over 20 years. I believe I got my leadership qualities from him and that he is the reason behind my drive towards bringing effective change to unemployment. He was unemployed for three years before passing away in 2013, which taught me to rise above my circumstances.

12. What do you love about South Africa? I love our various traditions and cultures, and the way we support each other. We have the most beautiful scenery, lovely weather and delicious foods. I am proud of any person or team that represents our country internationally. I love our country's vibrant and rich culture and hospitality.
