A time to treasure and an opportunity for growth – that’s how former Miss World Rolene Strauss has looked on her time in lockdown.

“There were so many challenges,” Rolene (28) says. “Firstly, we couldn’t be as active as we usually are and didn’t get to spend as much time in the outdoors. Also, we couldn’t see our family and loved ones – that was probably the biggest challenge. But in every situation there are also positive things and opportunities for growth.

“We came up with alternative ways of spending time together and we treasured and made full use of this time.”
