Graduate Engineer

Born and bred in South Africa, I had lived there my entire life before relocating over to the UK to join Civic Engineers. I worked in one of South Africa’s busiest cities for a large engineering consultancy firm. Civic Engineers strong focus on sustainability and culture, as well as starting a new adventure, is what attracted me to Manchester – it definitely was not the weather!

In April of 2016, I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with a group of friends. Mt Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa and the highest freestanding mountain in the world at 5895m. Summiting on Easter day to watch the sunrise was one of the best moments I have ever experienced. This hike remains on my bucket list as I am sure I will return for round 2.
