ABOUT YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
I was born on November 3, 1993 in Cape Town.
I live in Khayelitsha.
I have four brothers and one sister - my mother is a single parent.
I am a Grade 12 learner at Thembelihle Senior Secondary School.
My favourite school subjects are Accounting, Life Science, Maths, and Physical Science.
I started cycling in 2006.
I chose cycling because the sport offers many opportunities and is quite a new sporting code in the townships.
I joined Velokhaya/LCA in 2006.
In cycling I appreciate the support, mentoring, life skills and respect we give one another.
My biggest achievement was becoming a Western Province Championship gold medalist.
I practice six days per week for two hours a day - on weekends usually four to six hours.
I like being part of a team and achieving our goals together.
I don't participate any other sport at this stage - cycling is it!
Cycling has taught me about maintaining a healthy lifestyle and has also developed my human potential to be creative and to respect others.
My cycling dream is to take part in the Tour de France.
Cyclists I admire are Fabian Cancellara because he is a good time-trialist and Luthando Kaka as my mentor.
There are many difficult obstacles to face in the sport of cycling such as transformation in the new South Africa and getting 100% buy-in from ones family.
One of the challenges we face is a lack of equipment - not enough bikes for those that are keen to ride.
I love samp with meat and African salad.
My favourite drink is Coke a Cola.
I admire my mother as she is always there for me when I need her most - she has always supported and motivated along the way.
My dream is to be an accountant or business owner.
