You just won 1 million rand, how do you spend/not spend it?

I will open up my own coffee shop, with private office space for counselling rooms. I will employ ladies rescued from human trafficking, and I will implement a 'saved coffee' system where homeless people can get free coffee!

Describe yourself in 3-5 words

Compassionate, resilient, child of God

What is your favourite thing to do, to pass the time?

I love exploring new places (especially coffee shops and cafe's), spending time with friends and family, and going to car meets and motor sport events.

What is the weirdest/funniest/best compliment you have received?

'Tannie is my favourite' - my 5 year old niece.

Something you love about South Africa?

The people and the different cultures. I find it beautiful that we are so diverse yet so similar. Also, we have the most beautiful country - our scenery and nature is beyond extraordinary!

If you could give every person in the world a gift, what would it be?

Second chances and the gift of time.

You get a free lunch date with anyone you want! Who do you choose? And why?

Dr Daniel Amen. He produces revolutionary work in the field of neuroscience, psychiatry and mental health and I would love to pick his brain and just understand how he sees the world. He tries to break the stigma on mental health by using science to back him up, and not only his personal opinion. I think it's amazing to use a platform like his to raise awareness on mental healthy and psychiatric disorders

If you could jump into a pool of ANYTHING, what would it be?

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts!
