I left SA after finishing Gr10 and went to Portugal where I proceeded to finish Gr12. I then did a tourism management course for 2 years with a final average of 80%. Shortly after that, I got into a reality TV show called Casa dos Segredos 3 (similar to Big Brother) where I spent 3 and a half months and ended up coming 3rd! I spent the last year travelling throughout Portugal and other European countries helping with fundraisers etc. After a total of 6 years of living in Portugal I moved to Mozambique where I am currently awaiting a job opportunity.
