“Throughout my childhood, there were other reminders of the injustice I first saw when I was six. Seeing so-called “terrorists” lying dead on the ground, trophy style, in SABC TV news bulletins, yet they seemed mere children to me. They couldn’t have been more than sixteen years of age. Or going to the school camp I went to when I was nine, where they taught us to “shoot” black cardboard cutouts in the middle of the night with our torches. How bizarre it seemed to me at that age—sleeping outside in the freezing cold, playing these war games, raising the flag and singing the national anthem military style every morning.” This quote first gives us real insight on what her childhood was like, and how she learned of the apartheid government and their cruel acts towards people of color and those who fight against them.

The first day of tryouts started and I was paired up with Cooper and a freshman, all competing for one spot. Quickly, I realized that both of my opponents could hit the ball farther than me and I began to forget my father's guidance of playing conservatively, in an attempt to keep up with them. I began hitting my more inconsistent clubs, hoping for longer yardage. This method of “Go Big or Go Home” didn’t work out very well because after the first day I was losing by three strokes to Cooper and losing by four strokes to the freshman.
