Describe yourself in five words?
Versatile: sport; music; parent & communicator.

What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?
Some losses, like losing weight, can actually be gains!

What do you dislike most about your appearance?
Hic hic! I am trying to get rid of my tummy but have never been on target.

What is your greatest extravagance?
$25 on a meal in Bulawayo a week ago! No choice if you are having a no-host dinner with the boss!

Sweet things.

Meeting a news agency with my boss!
