Audryana Yaholnitsky was born and bred in the mountain kingdom of Lesotho. Having been born to an interracial couple, like an aeroplane attached to two precious wings, two precious homes are attached to her (Lesotho and Canada).

She received academic awards in English at St. Stephen’s Diocesan High School where she attended and most recently a certificate for excellent academic achievement in English from the University of the Free State. Her greatest achievement in sport was being the netball find of the year during her first year of high school and ultimately became the team’s captain during her final year.

Audryana has a passion for travel and adventure and her greatest dream is to provide a voice to the voiceless. She is currently studying communication science with specialisation in media studies and journalism at the University of the Free State.
