I grew up rough & tough in the rural areas of Cyferkuil in the former Bophuthatswana...where electricity & running water did not exist! At age of 10 I got a scholarship 2 study at the International School of Bophuthatswana/South Africa (ISB/ISSA). Barely speaking English I made my way to Mafikeng with every intention to make it, no matter what!!!! I received a bursary from Ernst & Young to study BCom & Bcom Homours in Accounting at Wits & Natal Universities when I finished at ISSA. I played for SA senior women's football (soccer) team in 1998, 2002 - 2004. I also represented SA at World Student Games in both basketball & football btwn 1999 and 2003. I was nominated for an SABC 2/Shoprite Checkers Woman of the Year award in the sport category (2007) for development work through football I was doing with young girls in Soweto/Wits at the time. I received a Chevening Scholarship to study an MSc in Sports Managment at Loughborough University (UK) in 2008/9. I worked at Ernst & Young (2003-2008), the 2010 FIFA World Cup (Marketing at Soccer City, 2010) and the CAF African Womens Championships in 2010.
