I am a fiercely determined South African woman. I am 19 years old and enjoy reading and health and fitness. I have an immense passion for community service.

2. What is your year of study ?

I am a first year BA Law student.

3. What made you try out for Miss Varsity Shield?

As a result of winning Miss Wits you are automatically sent to two national pageants. Miss Varsity Shield being one of them. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity to represent my university at such a prestigious event.

4. What do you think is the best aspect of Wits University?

I believe the best aspect of Wits University is its diversity. Wits is a melting pot of diversity and being able to associate with so many different people enables one to be exposed with broadened view points and cultures.

5. Do you love rugby?

Yes I do. In high school I was a first aider and watched a lot of rugby as a result. Thus fostering a great passion for the game.

6. When will the Miss Varsity Shield (national) be chosen?

Monday the 18th at half time of the Varsity Shield rugby final.

7. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?

I see myself finishing my second degree. I would also like to have built firm relationships with various charities and established a mentorship program for young individuals. I also plan to send in my entry form for Miss South Africa.

8. What advice do you have for students at university?

My advice is to manage your time  as best as you can. Make friends that you can socialize with but at the same time support your academic goals.

9. Would you encourage girls to enter Miss Wits Varsity Shield next year? Yes, I would. It is an excellent platform to exercise one's passion for community service. You grow so much as a person by assisting others. It is a great opportunity for a young lady to grow and make a lot of new friends along the way.

10. How do we vote for you ?
Voting is really simple. All one has to do is click on this link http://bit.ly/1qr5Yvf or visit the Varsity Cup Facebook page and find the voting page for Miss Varsity Shield 2016. Voting closes Monday the 18th at 4pm.
11. What's your opinion on FeesMustFall and AccessMustRise?
I believe that all human rights should be respected. The right to protest peacefully should be respected as well as the rights of other students and staff. Access to universities and education are serious issues which one should not take lightly.
