What are your fitness goals?

Netball has always been a passion of mine and I believe it is something I am good at. I want to take my netball to the next level and hopefully play professional netball one day.

I have been dreaming of competing in a beach bikini fitness show for some time now. 2020 is my jear that I will actually make it happen. I have what it takes, just need the motivation, hard work and dedication and the stage is my next step.

Been living the “healthy lifestyle” for approximately 2 years now. I am still struggling. My main goal is just to stay healthy, get even more healthier and fit that I already am. Basically I want to become the best version of me that I possibly can, without pushing myself too hard and still being realistic.

Any sporting / fitness achievements we should know about?

Currently playing for the Overberg Netball Federation developing team.

Why do you think you’re the USN Face of Fitness?

I believe I can inspire girls wanting to follow the lifestyle I am trying to live. I have made so much progress since I finished school. A lot of people have asked me how I managed to get to where I am today since it was a huge change.

I am the most humble and down to earth girl I could think of. I don’t think I’m better than anyone. I will always remember where I started and how I felt during that time of my life where I hated every single thing about myself. My body, my legs, my stomach, my face. You name it; I hated it. And that is absolutely no way of living. I want to help girls get through things that I got through. I have a lot of experience in different aspects of life and know I am a good listener. I am someone who is there, and I mean really there for other people. Especially people that are struggling, with anything in life. I want to help. I like to help. And I make it my mission to help, even sometimes when it is not yet possible for me, I will still do everything in my power to try and help or just make it better or easier for someone else.

I am not a famous girl, I do not have a million likes and followers, I do not have a lot of friends, and I most certainly am not good at social media, posting photos all those things. Therefore I feel that I will be an example for all the girls just like me “plain and normal” that anyone can achieve anything they put their mind to.

My favourite quote: “Be who you needed when you were younger”, and I aim to be exactly just that.
