Walking with the ghosts of Mossel Bay.
“I believe that the more you know about the past, the bigger your perception becomes of the future because things tend to happen in a circle. And ghost stories, they really connect the past with the present."
Nails, Teaching and Thailand.
“I want to apply to UNISA this year to study teaching, it’s one of the things that I’d really like to do. It’s my real career choice. So next year, it will be my first year.”
Dealing with dialysis.
“Some days I’ve got good days, some days I haven’t. It all depends on how you feel after dialysis, but you get used to it. I get there at 4.30, I’m on the machine at 5.00, then I get off at 9.00, have a bath and come to work. It’s like going to the gym for two hours."
Saving Seabirds since the 90's.
“I just love them. They’re actually an indicator of the health of the ocean. If they're in trouble, the ocean’s in trouble. I think conservation people choose specific endangered species and I chose African penguins to try and save.”
Goats and music.
“In Harare, I started studying about agriculture. But I didn’t like agriculture, though. I used to bunk some lessons, in high school. It’s quite boring. But now I regret it, because now I’m going to have to do those things on my farms.”
Coffee, fitness and being a mum.
"While I was in Johannesburg, I knew I had to get out of the corporate industry to come back home, here. I had to be flexible for Sammy, my daughter, so I had to create something that allowed me to be just that."
Ten-year-old TV star.
“I don’t actually know when I started getting into acting. I think when I was small, my mother and father always used to say I was overdramatic - today, they still say I’m overdramatic. I think sometimes I am. If it’s meant to be, I would want to be an actor someday."
“I have a massive phobia of inland. I love the ocean so if I can be in the middle of it without any land around me, that’s where my happiest spot is."
It's a drummer-diver's life.
“Back then I was just using a GoPro, but making all kinds of videos involving sharks and people, and then stitching it all together and kind of making things work that way. Then I gradually started upgrading my gear and going to different places."
Friends with great white sharks.
“Then I saw something coming but I didn’t know it was a shark. I was calling the guys, ‘Look, come here. What’s that?’ It was a four-metre shark, beautiful. They laughed at me and said, ‘That’s what we’re looking for!’ I was like, ‘I’m not going to go on the first dive, I must wait and see.’ When I dived and saw them - they are beautiful, nice and calm, not like how the film shows."
