About Me: 

Wife and mother of two. LIfe is a journey and while each day presents it's challenges I enjoy it all for the most part. Living close to many challenges in the Eastern Cape I feel alive, connected and in touch with everyday people. My latest venture is to be part of the literacy programme's in and around Grahamstown. New media and ICT's need literate individuals in order to obtain the maximum out of modern technology. Being able to read and write is but one step towards knowing how to help yourself out of dire circumstances. Applying knowledge once obtained is not always as simple as it seems.
I am tired of middle class apathy and want to add value instead by acting and the many abilities I have, to help others who want to help themselves.

My Passions: 
colour, people, interior decorating, travel, antiques, life
My Challenges: 
middle class apathy
My Vision for the Future: 
to help as much as I can wherever life takes me
My Areas of Expertise: 
writing, communicating with ease, people, empathetic, intuitive
My Languages: 
English, Afrikaans
