What can colleagues and friends expect when they are around you?

They can expect someone who is dependable, dedicated, and driven to succeed. I believe in the power of positivity at work and I aim to create a supportive environment where everyone feels motivated and respected.

What are your guiding principles at work?

In my approach to work, I hold honesty and reliability in high regard, earning trust through my actions. I am passionate about learning and I always seek ways to improve, viewing challenges as chances to grow.

What motivates you at work and in life?

What motivates me is achieving success through tackling challenges, learning continuously, and building strong relationships. I am also driven by the opportunity to make a positive impact and grow professionally.

What is the most unexpected thing you ever did?

The most unexpected thing I ever did was leaving my family and friends in South Africa after school to study and play sports in the United States. It was a bold move that took me far out of my comfort zone into a completely unfamiliar environment where I knew no one, but today I look back and am so grateful that I had this opportunity.
