INTERVIEWS WITH 567 CAPE TALK RADIO
I have been really blessed with some incredible PR opportunities this year including being able to share my story on South African radio. On Sunday, 28 May 2017, I did an interview for 567 Cape Talk with Mr Terence Mentoor on his Sunday morning early breakfast show. We spoke about various topics including my journey from fat to fit, the emergence of a body positive culture, and whether or not it is possible to be “plus size” AND fit. If you would like to listen to the interview, please click here.
On Friday, 7 July 2017, I did a second interview with 567 Cape Talk with the lovely Mr Renaldo Schwarp on his overnight show. We spoke about a variety of topics including my fitness journey, my social media accounts, social media pressure, my diet and exercise protocols, the importance of progress photos, and what keeps me motivated to keep pushing on. If you would like to listen to the interview, please click here.
Thank you to 567 Cape Talk Radio for supporting my journey.

Say whaaat? Women’s Health Magazine chose ME to be their May #WHFitFluencer? Wow!! I am really humbled and so honoured that Women’s Health chose to feature me this month. It’s really an incredible feeling to be acknowledged as a real player in the South African fitness industry by the biggest female health magazine in SA.

FEATURED IN YOU MAGAZINE
In May 2017, I received an email from a very excited Kristin Buick at Media24. She wanted to know if I would be interested in doing a piece for YOU magazine. I was completely shocked. Really? I grew up reading the YOU magazine and never would have imagined that someday I would be gracing its pages. After hearing Kristin’s amazing concept for the article, of course I accepted. Thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity. It’s an honour to have a double page feature in one of South Africa’s biggest and oldest magazines!!

AN INTERVIEW WITH FAT LOSS MAGAZINE
Of all the crazy things to have happened this year since starting my fitness journey, one of the most overwhelming things to have happened has without a doubt been my incredible spread in Fat Loss Magazine.
When I was contacted by Tanja Schmitz, editor of Fitness Magazine South Africa, for an interview regarding my transformation story, I was so overwhelmed and humbled. I thought I would accomplish a few things in 2016, but having my story published in Fat Loss Magazine was definitely the biggest surprise and the greatest honour.
Thank you so much to the Fitness Magazine SA and Fat Loss Magazine SA teams for affording me such an amazing platform to tell my story. Knowing that my story has reached thousands of individuals, really makes my heart so happy. Being able to inspire just one person to change their life, is a massive win for me. This is what my transformation story is really about.
It is an incredible honour to be acknowledged by this world class magazine, and I look so forward to working together again in the future.
