Willene Theart

Willene Grew up in a small South African west coast town and says she could safely play in the streets and knew very little of what was really going on in South Africa and the world.  She went to Paarl Gymnasium High School and is currently finishing her BA in Dramatic Arts and Theatre at Stellenbosch University where she specialises in Physical and Applied (Community) Theatre. She specifically enjoys working with children and making a difference. She is looking to continue Applied Theatre in the future, building on her experience with a voluntary group from an old age home. She says her childhood was conservative and has had a few eye opening moments in Stellenbosch with regards to racial consciousness and her position as a white female South African. In her spare time she attends a social Ballroom class and enjoys drinking wine with her friends and going out dancing.

Ian Louw.jpgIan is currently a third year Actuarial Science student at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. He is passionate about Mathematics, Statistics and Finance. He practices this passion by exploring and making sense of complicated theories. Ian is most happy when he has an empty Excel sheet with a strong cup of coffee in front of him where he can be a “true artist” when exploring modelling possibilities. His fascination with markets and finance was a by-product of the credit crisis of 2008, which he reads about and does research on in his free time. Apart from finance, Ian is a keen golfer and he appreciates a glass of Cabernet from time to time.
