I always pictured myself in a glass office, and rather large boardroom table that could fit thirty people at once(chuckles), but God had other plans, great plans that I am extremely grateful for.
Cricket has taught me so much, even about myself, and it has taken me to so many places, and has afforded me so many opportunities over the years, which I feel have prepared me for
any assignment that I might venture on in the future. I have had the opportunity to study further though cricket, with Sports Management being one of the qualifications obtained, all thanks to Cricket South Africa and KFC.
I really enjoy being a part of cricket, and a part of the KFC Mini Cricket Program mainly because I have seen the program and the game changing lives, mine included. The absolute
elation that fills the kids & coaches’ faces when attending any KFC Mini Cricket activity; it gives you reason to get up everyday and be content with being part of a program that changes lives on a daily basis.
KFC has been an amazing sponsor and one that has been loyal to the program. Even during the tough times resulting from Covid-19, KFC remained with the program and have cemented their commitment further. I would also be failing if I did not thank the volunteer coaches that brave the cold, hot, windy, and wet weather, as well as sacrificing their weekends and family time to make sure that they are on the fields coaching our mini cricketers. They are the unsung heroes that strengthen the cricket pipeline by making sure that they do what is required(and more) at mini cricket level.
I am looking forward to the journey ahead, with more schools coming on board, and more lives being changed.
