‘HIV took my mother, not my spirit, we are not our circumstances’

From living in a shack in a township in SA to calling Oprah Mom, to sharing the podium with Michelle Obama…

My thing is if you don’t tell yourself that you are the best, you never will be.

My cycling accident, left me completely paralyzed from the belly button down. I feel like a prisoner at times, jailed in my own body, finding my freedom only when I am out taking part in sports – I’ve represented SA in two Para-cycling World cups, brought home two gold medals.
