"I am a 27 year old 3rd year 3D Design student from TUT in Pretoria South Africa. I am the second youngest of six children comprising of four older brothers and one younger sister. Both my parents were teachers so education was of high importance to them whilst growing up. My father saw that I was very passionate in sketching cars, so in my final year of high school he went around sourcing a course which could lead me into automotive design, hence I studied 3D Design. I enjoy designing because it gives you an opportunity to reshape the environment around you, by problem solving, and merging old technology with new technology. I have a keen interest in 3D Printing technology because it has the potential to bring manufacturing closer to the everyday man.My ultimate goal is to train underprivileged youth around South Africa and equipped them with design, cad and 3D printing skills so they can become active manufacturers both locally and internationally."
