Favorite food:

I love spending time in the outdoors and keep fit by playing cricket for the University 1st team as well as for the local provincial team. It gives me great joy giving back to the community by mentoring and coaching young cricketers. Cricket is not only good for fitness and health reasons, but requires patience and persistence, good qualities that I am happy to spend time nurturing. I have a unquenchable thirst for knowledge and enjoy quiet times with a good book. In addition, I took up modelling 2 years ago and am still surprised at how much I have learnt and grown through this process. It has provided me with an amazing platform to network and build confidence.

Short description about yourself:
I am young, ambitious and focused and constantly strive to be a man of competence, compassion and integrity. I regard misfortune as a window of opportunity and my ambition is to be a true inspiration for young learners, students and peers. I am very enthusiastic about sport and the way it brings together people from different ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds.

What will your contribution be if you should become MR. South Africa:
As an ambassador of South Africa, I would like to inspire South Africans on all levels, with authenticity and integrity. I think it is crucial for the younger generations to have strong, healthy and authentic role models to look up to. I would love to spend time with young, driven individuals in workshops and possibly coaching or mentoring situations. In addition I would like to be a spokesperson on the importance of Education and relevant learning that is appropriate to the country and environment in which we live.

What qualities should a MR. South Africa title holder have:
The title holder of Mr South Africa should exude authenticity, integrity, health and a true enjoyment for living life! He should be an intelligent follower and a dynamic leader. A man of competence, composure and integrity and most of all a gentleman that is proud of his country and it's amazing diversity.
