Lee-Ann Persse (Class of 2006)

On 22 November 2017 Lee-Ann Persse gave an insightful and inspirational talk at the Somerset College Pavilion.

Lee-Ann spoke about her journey as an Olympic athlete and her involvement with Team Unogwaja. Unogwaja is a growing legacy inspired by an incredible South African story of hope that we can all be part of.
The Unogwaja challenge was initiated to follow the footsteps of Comrades legend Phil Masterton-Smith, who was affectionately known as “Unogwaja” which means the Hare in Zulu. The Unogwaja team came together through Red Sock Friday (RSF), an initiative that is a global community of people who share a common passion for life and positive energy.
