What/who is God?

A higher power providing me with direction, purpose and meaning. He is a generous entity.

What happens when you die?

I have never thought about it. I do not fear it. I am an African so part of me believes that I will meet my ancestors. I am also a Christian but I explore and embrace spiritually in other forms too.

What would you do with your last 24 hours on earth?

There is nothing as intimate, as communal or as bonding as being around a dinner table with people you love, so that’s what I would do. I will miss that when I am gone!

Define what you do?

I am currently the marketing and communications manager at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium and an Algoa FM presenter. I have also been an entertainment professional for 15 years, which includes singing, MC and voice-over work, and motivational speaking.

Are you living your life purpose?

Yes, because I feel a deep joy when I do the things I do.

Define success.

Living your life purpose 100%, which includes health, wealth and good relationships.

What does money mean to you?

Freedom from worry. Security.

What are you afraid of?

Harm coming to the people I love. I am afraid of seeing them suffering.

Name a surprising fact about yourself.

I once convinced my teacher to make me write a test to skip a grade. It worked. I finished school at 16.

Why do you live in PE?

If you could ask God one question, what would it be?

Where is my husband?

Name one great lesson you have received in life.
