Who or what inspires you? 
Making a difference in people’s lives; brand management and contributing towards a bigger goal of making our society a better place to live in. I draw inspiration from a lot of young people doing great things. 

If you could be any animal in the world, what animal would you be and why?
I’d be an eagle; fly with no limits.

Jussie Smollet – Good enough. 

You step outside your house and find a lottery ticket that ends up winning R10 million. What would you do with it?
Donate 2 million to the underprivileged, buy my mom a holiday home, travel and think about all the next moves.
