I’m a do-gooder. Nayha found me at a rally with a board reading “save the whales” but for some strange reason I was handcuffed to a tree. I’m a tree-hugger and most probably the hippie in this group. I’m all about helping the people. Needy people, homeless people, ag, in fact, any people. Oh and I’m responsible for making the juniors on campus aware that they’ve got great potential.
Where am I from?
Believe it or not, but I’m from Elsie’s River. Many of you have been there for family medicine or gynaecology or probably just heard the taxi gaatjie shouting “Elsies! Parow! Elsies!”
