A copywriter and life enthusiast based out of Cape Town, South Africa — I love getting unnecessarily sunburnt, traveling and hunting down the best coffee in the world.
After losing over 30kg in 2014, my life has not been the same since...
My passion for self-improvement started during my schooling career. I completed a Dale Carnegie Public speaking course which, not only taught me how to confidently speak in public, but also thought me the value of change.
In my grade eleven year at school I weighed a whopping 90kg — baring in mind I’m only 5’7”, this was kind of fat...actually no, it was very fat.
I was an avid lifter and frequent eater. Although I smiled graciously on the outside and was often the first to crack a joke in class — on the inside, however — I was depressed, confused and morbidly unhappy (and obese). The start of my final school year in 2014 I decided self-improvement has to begin on a biological level. I worked hard physically and stuck to a ketogenic-like diet which helped me lose over 30kg in less than 8 months. To this day I have managed to keep (most of -- hey, I still go ham on the croissants every now and again, don't judge) that stubborn weight off.
