1. Where do you live, work and play?
Cape Town. I was born in Stellenbosch, and currently, live in Somerset West.

I participated in Miss SA the year that Rolene Strauss won the crown, and was a presenter on Afrikaans lifestyle show, Pasella.
3. Describe your career so far.
Exhilarating and nerve-wracking at times, but it’s nothing less than an honour and privilege to be able to do what I love every day.
4. Tell us a few of your favourite things.
Food. Sushi. My cats. My job. The gym. Nature. Hiking. The beach. Sleep, haha!

My volunteer work includes the ‘Mishka Patel Success Classes’, where I work on uplifting young women in the Strand and Stellenbosch community with important life skills and traits to make them successful and be the best versions of themselves.
Additionally, I use my NLP life coach qualification to guide clients to reach their ideals and steer them in the right direction for overall life success.
11. Tell us some of the buzzwords floating around in your industry at the moment, and some of the catchphrases you utter yourself.
Oh wow, wasn’t it “on fleek” at some point? “Yaaas Queen?” Oh my word, no, let me stop. It might be because I’m answering these questions on very little sleep, but I’m a blank right now!
12. Where and when do you have your best ideas?
No specific times or places, they come when they’re supposed to come I think. When it’s meant to be!
