It is always pleasing when people return to Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA).
This seems to be happening more-and-more, which shows that MSSA is doing a lot right Amanda Pakade (née Kwaza) is just one such person.
While at the University of Johannesburg (UJ), where Amanda studied sport management, Amanda became an excellent competitor. and besides having won a string of provincial and national awards, won silver in Morabaraba at the 2007 World Championships.
While at University, Amanda too became involved in the administration of MSSA and served as the Players’ Representative from 2006 through to 2008. Amanda too earned a ranking as a national umpire.
Today Amanda is a mother of two children, Inam and Hlumi, and is a network marketing Pro for Longrich health, wealth and beauty products as well as teaching group exercise classes at Virgin Active.
However, despite a very heavy schedule, Amanda has retained her love of board games. By being appointed as a National Selector, Amanda is determined to make a difference in the competitor’s lives – just as she does in the lives of all with whom she comes into contact. Amanda’s personal hashtag is: #l was born to make an impact. There is no doubt that Amanda is indeed a valuable asset to MSSA’s Selection Committee.
