I Am Driven By | The fact that I have accepted the Lord as my saviour and King, and that he has blessed me with a talent and I will fulfil his plan for me. My family of course play a huge role as well.

A Key Talent | One of my biggest strengths is that I treat people the same way I want to be treated, because in Life there will always be doubters and people who will try bring you down who will make you doubt yourself. I quickly learnt that by letting go of issues that hurt the most and dwell on those that bring positivity.

Principles I Live By | The sooner you find your identity, the easier life will be and all your goals, visions, dreams will be easier to manage.

Lessons I Have Learnt | Taking myself out of my comfort zone quite often and that on its own puts things into perspective by not taking anything for granted. I appreciate every little thing the Lord has done for me.

Dealing With Doubt | I remind myself everyday that the Lord has a plan for me and my purpose in life and no one said it would be easy but the journey will be worth it in the end. It has been a tough year for me, with 2 knee operations that have kept me out of rugby for the whole year and quite a few personal challenges. However I have done nothing but remained positive and faithful.

Tera-Mtembu-3Performing At My Peak | I challenge myself to be better every day. Also by insuring that my mind and body are always fresh to be able to peak at crucial times.

Resources I Use To Stay Inspired | The Bible

I Am Inspired By | Firstly the Lord inspires everyday in life. Secondly my parents are my role models and as I got older I realised how much they have sacrificed for me, which gave me the best opportunity to be somewhere in life and kick start my career.
