“In 2014, I was awarded Junior Field Athlete when I broke the inter-high school record which I still currently hold,” she said. “My highlight is winning the best goalkeeper of the year at the Janine van Wyk Girls Football Development Programme awards last month. When my name was announced I was beyond excited and very proud because of the hard work I put in.”

Her father, Emmanuel Mazivise said they realised when she was 10 years old that she was talented in sport. “She’s always been the one to decide which sports she wants to play and we just support her,” he said. “Our proudest moment was when she challenged herself to learn how to play ringball and eventually played it better than the more experienced players.
“She was invited to represent South Africa at the Goalthian Tournament in China and is currently looking for sponsorship to fund her trip. We would be happy if someone could sponsor the opportunity for her to play at an international tournament.”
