About 

I'm what they say in South-Africa a "Boere meisie" (Africans girl), a hard worker, love to get something done, will do my very best to get it perfect. 

Other all  I'm a very pleasant person to be around, always cheerful, and I do really enjoy Architecture. My passion is to design “create” art.  

I also enjoy going to site to see how building plans can become reality.  Love learning new things especially out on site visits, in the office or anywhere else.

I can achieve my very best in any task that's given to me.
