Hoërskool Waterkloof

Minette Pretorius

Who was your favourite teacher in school and why?

Mrs. Smith She was my English teacher in high school. She was an absolute gem, she had the kindest heart and she was so passionate about her job and subject. We talked about the more important things in life in her class and she taught me so much about myself.

What is one thing you miss from school and one thing you do NOT miss?

One thing I miss: my school's slap chips (they were bomb!) One thing I don't miss: math and business studies exam papers

What is one fun fact about you?

I am deathly afraid of insects (especially cockroaches and beetles)

If you could give one small piece of advise to EVERY teenager out there, what would it be?

Don't wish your life away. Live in the moment. Your teenage years have a lot of valuable life lessons. 1 Timothy 4:12

Did you learn a new skill in 2020/2021? What is it?

Painting and I'm still learning to speak isiZulu.

What is one place you really missed during hard lockdown and why?

Coffee shops. Going to a coffee shop is one of the things that helps me clear my head - a safe space with the smell of coffee beans in the air, and a cuppa' in hand. It brings me peace.

What is the best (not well-known) place you've visited in South-Africa?

The Alpaca Loom in Paarl, WC.

a Lesson I learned in 2021...

Things don't always work out the way we want them to, and that's okay. God has perfect timing.

I am excited for 2022 because...

I'm getting married! I'm finally going to start building a life with my best friend of six years. And I'm excited for a new year, new opportunities, and new experiences.
