CONVERSATIONS: You & Me: Liezel van der Westhuizen

July 19, 2017

 

 

 

Media celebrity Liezel van der Westhuizen has an enormous number of sports accolades to her name, she is a fierce supporter of animal rights, an adrenaline junkie and she is up for just about any challenge. Liezel now also has her own 5-6 am slot on KFM94.5. I've always admired her upbeat personality, fearless attitude and huge love of life. Did you know Liezel was the first female announcer at a Comrades Marathon and also the first woman in South Africa to model at Mercedes-Benz Menswear fashion!
