1. What’s your biggest achievement / Something you’re proud of yourself for?
“In 2012 I started the Pink Penguin project in support of charities that challenge me outside of my comfort zone. The first project was kayaking to Robben Island in December in aid of Multiple Sclerosis.”
2. What’s your biggest fear / something that holds you back?
“I have been in a wheelchair for 3 decades due to an illness experienced as a teen, making the comfort zone challenge that much more important. I am always waging a war against comfort zones. Trying to inspire people to challenge themselves in order to grow and enjoy life to the best of their abilities. I went to see the Gorillas in Rwanda in 2013. Locals had to carry me up the mountain in order to reach the gorilla family. I also visited Namibia’s no-entry zone (spergebied) where wheelchairs fail to tread in the beautiful Namib dunes.“
3. What’s your biggest contribution / Something you like to share?
“In 2017 I released my first cookbook “Martelize Kook: Jy’s genooi”. Then there is my tv show “Martelize se Stamtafel” where I interview well known personalities like the Sandra Prinsloo’s of the world about their family tree and cook dishes from that heritage – launches on 20 October 17:00 on VIAtv. Also my podcast “Martelize Gesels Met…” launched on the 1st of September “
