About Me


My current and ongoing mission is to learn as much as possible, when it comes to culture, people and fun!


When I asked one of my best friends to describe me this is what she came up with!

"Awesome, Brilliant, Cheerful, Dirty, Energetic, Friendly, Gloomy (in the morning), Hard Working (when it comes to things you like), Idiotic, Joyful, Knocking, Lazy, Money-favoured, Needy, Optimistic, Privileged, Quiet, Resourceful, Silly, Timid, Unique, Various, Wild/Weird, X, Yield, Zoo."


"Happiness is the only way to be happy."

-Ricardo Sanches


When it comes to leisure, I want to be engaged (big film junkie, always on my phone chatting to people, have most of my lunches and dinners with friends if possible). If I am not doing that I want my brain to be spraying endorphins and adrenaline throughout my body constantly, which is why I love my snowboarding and cycling/running. Used to do Muay Thai. At the moment I am trying to find something to do similar to snowboarding like surfing, but apparently it's hard to find good surf here. Like to do things like skydiving and bungee jumping.

Music, Movies, and Books

Well, I studied film, majored in Cinematography, minored in Sound Design and studied it all from books.

But seriously... Extremely interested in all of these... so EVERY movie, book and type of music would be part of my 'interested in list'.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. Hiking the two day trail "Cape Point, Cape Town, South Africa". Last day of the hike I was sitting near a cliff ledge watching the sunset and two baboons walked to the edge of the cliff and sat together watching the sunset with me.
2. Snowboarding down the 'black slope' (measurement of difficulty) and not falling on my ass, ending it off with a little jump as well (didn't fall).
3. Getting tipsy on my favourite beach in Cape Town with my brother and sister after a year of being away from them. Staying to watch the sunset.
