Yandiswa invests in her dream career

19 Year Old Yandiswa Shange has been on the Endurocad program for 3 years now. After matriculating from Vorentoe High School in Johannesburg 2 years ago , she moved to our hub in Stellenbosch last year. She was enrolled at ETA for a three year Sports Management course and after some career guidance she decided that she is really passionate about sports massaging. 
 
We caught up with Yandiswa to find out why she decided to do this course and what she plans to do with her qualification in the future. 
 
Why Sports Massage ?
“I decided to to do Sport Massage Course because I realized how important it is as an athlete to get muscle recovery through massage because massage also helps prevent injuries and boosting performance. I have an interest in the human body. I saw this as a good opportunity to learn and understand more about human bodies, that is how I became interested in doing Sport Massage Course 
 
Another reason is that I am passionate about sport and I would love to work in the sport industry because it will still keep me around sport industry even after my running career.
 
I want use my qualifications as a step to get to be a professional or well known Sports Therapist and continue to empower my knowledge about human body which will build a better understanding in my career as well.
 
How are you finding the course? ” 
“The course is interesting I always look forward to take something home and apply it during practice sessions to become a better person in the massage. It is so amazing to see how hands can do great a great purpose in someone’s body. Sometimes it does not feel it requires so much effort as people will often  think when they see you you doing it, getting questions like “is your thumbs not sore”, but because I keep on practicing the techniques and loving what I am doing it does not make me tired. My dream is to one day have my own sports massage practice.”
