About Me


Learning Mandarin Chinese!!!



Most important fact: Ice cream is life.

I like experiencing the world, I am a curious person, and do enjoy seeing and experiencing things.

I, however, do have things I like to do, and things I do not like to do, as do we all. I can be fussy (most of us can be), but I am also very easy and laid back.

I am currently 20, After I finished high school I went to live in Bangkok, Thailand for a year, working at an international school. This was meant to be my one GAP year, but as I fell inlove with the world, I decided another year in China should be in order before I pursue my studies. In China I learnt Chinese, 我会说一点点汉语, I love the language, I think it is very interesting!

In 2013 I return to South Africa to attend film school in Cape Town. I am also very excited for this, and hope that I can bring to my future class mates all my experiences I have had in my two years abroad, and of those I have met!

So , please share all your experiences with me! :)


Dont rush it, you only live once!

Not sure what to write here :P I host, i surf. I have surfed with a few people, and have hosted a few. I have also visited the odd meeting now and then, but life has been busy.


I am still exploring couchsurfing, and although I have been on it a while, I haven't really used it to it's fullest extent as of yet. But, I do find it a handy tool to be part of! It allows one to make a lot of friends! and learn from a lot of people's experiences! Have to love that!


Interest, I have quite a few.

I enjoy watching movies, listening to music, who of us doesn't?

I love languages, and cultures, travelling and just being. :P make sense? life is life.
