What attracted you to working in the travel industry, specifically the sport travel sector? Tell us a bit about your career journey to Edusport.
I started playing sport in Grade 3 – specifically rugby – and believe me when I say there is a thing as love at first sight.!Sport has taught me a lot of things that I have been able to apply in my everyday life like discipline and teamwork.
Traveling on the other hand, seeing new places, meeting new people and learning new cultures is what fills the soul. Working at Edusport gives me that opportunity to get excited with our clients.
What are some of the highlights from your career in sport travel, at Edusport?
My most memorable highlight yet was experiencing the All Blacks Haka live and meeting the players after the game.
My Top 3 Sport Events
South Africa v All Blacks! No matter who the All Blacks are playing against I am sure everyone enjoys the Haka and you know that it is going to be beautiful running rugby. Cape Town Sevens, because everything about this event is just perfect. It is December, people are having a party, best costumes in the business and most of all the Blitz Bokke play at home. And finally, the English Premier League when people talk about passion and loyalty, these are the people they are talking about. I have never seen more passionate supporters then the English Premier League supporters.
