Her interest in Vedic Maths stemmed from a desire to find an alternate way to teach Maths at South African schools. Traditional methods used are time-consuming, confusing and don't allow for creative thinking.She completed the Vedic Maths Teacher Trainer Course through Vedic Maths Forum India (VMFI) and set up the South African Chapter of VMFI. With Vedic Maths, the vision is to create a love for Maths, eliminate the fear associated with Maths and develop a new generation of Mathematicians and Scientists who will make South Africa proud.
