Age: 17

Hometown: Kimberley, Northern Cape

School: Kimberley Girls High

Interests: Mostly astrophysics and algae at the moment (weird, I know).

Favourite book: The Millenium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson

Favourite word to use: “Awesome” – it just explains everything amazingly fantastically brilliant in one kickass word!

I’d like to make a difference by: Doing anything I can! Whether it be saving the planet with biofuel or just bringing a little bit of light into an underprivileged child’s life.

Coolest invention: The internet – what could be better than a world-wide connection of knowledge??

I get really annoyed by: People who don’t appreciate what they have.
