I started grade 7 at Tsogo High School in 1997 and matriculated in 2002. Earlier I attended Modiselle Primary School in Ga-Rankuwa, my mother was a teacher there. I got my BSc. Eng in Bio-resources/Agricultural Engineering from the University of KwaZulu-Natal. I am currently undertaking post graduate studies in MSc. Eng Process Engineering with Stellenbosch University and also undertaking studies for Award in Theology through the Theological Education by Extension College.

Currently, I work for the Agricultural Research Council-Institute for Agricultural Engineers (ARC-IAE) where I conduct research and integrate engineering principles in Renewable Energy applications. My research area is biofuels, particularly developing sustainable methods of biodiesel production.

I am also involved in a few initiatives to promote engineering as a desirable career path for high school girls also to support and encourage university students who are enrolled in the engineering faculty.
