Tuesday, 4 April 2017

I was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. I lived there for 19 years before moving to Perth. If anyone suggested studying abroad to me three years ago I would have said no without a doubt. I loved being at home in South Africa with my family, I never wanted to leave the safety net that was my home.
