Coming back to the place where I was born 22 years ago….who would ever thought of that? My name is Rachèlle Pretorius.
I competed my high school career at Hoërskool Noordheuwel in Krugersdorp. It was here where I learned that hard work is rewarded and that empathy for my fellow learners will make me stronger.
After completing high school, I relocated to Potchefstroom as I was accepted for a degree in Biokinetics at the North West University. I completed this degree in 2018 and was accepted at the University of Witwatersrand where I completed my honors degree in 2019. As an empathetic Christian who loves to make a significant difference in the lives of others, together with my indescribable passion for Biokinetics, I know that I am in the correct profession. My aim is to make a substantial transformation in people’s lives by working closely with them during their rehabilitation process, persevering through their pain and tears, until they have reached their goals.
My challenging past has made me stronger and more determined to strive for excellence, by equipping me with the patience and perseverance to overcome any obstacle. My personal motto to never give up, together with my positive outlook on life will inspire others to keep fighting and push through to achieve their goals.
