Hi I’m Trisha Rajkumar, im 23 years old and I’m currently doing my honours in forensic auditing.. one if my passions in life is practicing the art of martial arts. Through my years I’ve practiced many different styles such as judo, Brazilian jujitsu, tango soo do and shotokan jka karate a style which I still practice today.. I’ve achieved many accolades in the sport such as representing my country on numerous occasions and getting my black belt in karate..
I am currently a miss earth sa semi regional Finalist and I have been doing projects in aid of saving the Planet, these include educational workshops at schools, a community clean up and tree planting..
What inspires you everyday
Life itself inspires me. I want to live everyday to the fullest. I have a long bucket list of things I wish to do, i am the type of person that dreams big and I put in my all to achieve it.
What is something you would change about people in the world
The mind set of people.. I feel like people today do not think further then what they see.. like the other day I gave a motivational talk to a bunch of high school girls.. and during my presentation I went around asking some of them what do they want to do with there lives and majority of them were blank, yes u do the odd one or two that know they want out of life.. but it’s the majority of them that scary me.. kids of today don’t realise that high school doesn’t last forever, the real world is
What is your view on the people in the world
I have had the honour of hosting different cities all around the world and i have had the pleasure interacting with people from all over the world.. I must say that there is good and bad everywhere but honestly speaking the amount of good people out weigh the amount of bad people..
What is something you’ve struggled with in life
I have had a pretty amazing life.. I have amazing very supportive parents.. and they have supported me in everything I wanted to do in life.. I have however experience many challenges in terms of karate.. failure is something everyone experiences, I’ve failed more times then I can count but it’s how we deal with failure that makes us who we are
What is a positive message you would give others
I believe that with hard work and dedication anything is possible. As life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced
Last question if you could make a difference in the world how would you do it
U should follow my work on fb and Twitter.. I honestly do feel I’m making a difference in my community.. this month I have been collecting non-perishable items for needy families.. and I have joined the SPCA shelter to help animals in my community… I honestly feel like it’s the little things that count at the end of the day.. on Friday I distributed non-perishable items to a lady that lived in a tiny tin house with 3 children.. I collected basic items for her, like toothpaste, soap, tin food..
It was the first time she was ever given toothpaste.. something as basic as toothpaste, it was heartbreaking to see how she lived but so heart warming with how grateful she was.. so to answer your question, I am a person of action and I have been making a difference to the lives of individuals in my community and I will continue to do this work..
