Vhugala Voice Ndou is a 19-year-old student slaying it as a professional rugby player. Voice earned the opportunity to play alongside the Blitzbokke women's team in a national camp in May. But now, Voice has her sights set on joining the team on a permanent basis.
Voice plays for the University of Johannesburg's Sevens rugby team and has proven her tremendous talents. Recognising her undeniable skills, Voice was invited to a camp to play in the HSBC Dubai Sevens tournament.
Having enjoyed the learning experience, Voice hopes to continue her career with the Blitzbokke.
The young woman has big dreams and also hopes to play for the University Sport South Africa squad at the World Student Games this year, Briefly.co.za found.
Voice is an inspiration to South Africans who need a little motivation to live their dreams. She says she realised that one’s background does not mean one has a predetermined future. Voice has learnt that failure makes you stronger and helps you develop your skills and talents.
Voice says her experience at UJ has been an incredible help for her in her career. She particularly thanks her coach, Mbuyiselo Siqebengu, the team's manager, Tumelo Leseke, and sports scientist, Liphiwe Nxasana.
