After completing high school at St Marys DSG in Pretoria, I made my way to the University of Stellenbosch where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Languages and Cultures, majoring in Psychology, Applied English Language Studies, and Philosophy. Thereafter, I applied to the Aleit Academy, a tertiary institution in Somerset West which specialises in events management and wedding coordination. Throughout my three years as an Aleit student, I gained practical experience at different event-related companies across the Western Cape, including Shake and Serve, alCREATE, Pink Book Weddings, and BLOMBOY. During my time at Aleit, applied to become a hostess at Rust and Vrede, gaining experience in fine dining. I enjoy working under pressure as I conceptualise a challenge as an opportunity to achieve a new goal.
