During an informative True or False session on Instagram, Rachel Kolisi revealed some personal stories that made us love her even more…

The self-confessed introvert says she gets quiet in a room full of people. She also revealed that negative comments only fuel her to fight harder to make a difference in the world.

She wrote, “I’ve been told over and over to write myself off, I’ll never be anything, etc. I decided to let these comments fuel me – not to break myself.”

Financial strains

She also admitted that she didn’t manage to go to university because her grades were not the best.

As a result she had to start working to make ends meet. “I worked four sometimes five jobs to pay the bills,” she said, before revealing that when Siya played some of his first matches for Western Province she could only afford the R50 tickets to go and watch him.

These days, life is quite different for the couple. They are not only hailed as one of Mzansi’s most inspirational power couples, but they have found genuine joy and confidence in their individual abilities.
