10 Questions For: Suzelle DIY

The authority on everything from ‘how to change a plug’ to ‘how to peel a lot of potatoes’, this Somerset West-based meisie quickly became a YouTube sensation thanks to her quirky online DIY video series

1.  How would you describe what you do for a living?
I have a DIY web series on YouTube. I give people tips and tricks to make their lives a little bit easier and more creative.

2.  What is your most vivid childhood memory?
The day I met my best friend Marianne in the line at the tuck shop. She got a hot dog and I got a packet of Nik Naks.

3.  If you could invite any three people, dead or alive, for dinner, who would they be and why?
Charlize Theron, because she is a real inspiration. Jamie Oliver, because he is just so adorable, and finally Marianne, because she would also like to meet Charlize. Shame.

4. If you ever found yourself auditioning for a music reality TV show, what song would you sing and why?
I would sing ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ by Bonnie Tyler. Because, why? I always sing that song in my car.

5.  How would you complete this sentence?  
The South African cabinet should include a Minister of __________.
…Creativity.

6.  What would you say is the biggest misconception about you?
The biggest misconception is actually about Marianne, not me. It’s that she doesn't speak. But actually she is a real chatterbox. She's just shy in front of the camera.

7.  What is your (honest) opinion of Cape Town?
I love absolutely everything about Cape Town, only I don't really like wind or seagulls.

8.  What's the greatest fear you've had to overcome to get where you are today?
Taking a risk and doing my own thing always felt very scary to me, but now I've realised that it is possible to make a living from doing what you love. It's all about trusting your inner creative voice.

9.   What's the one thing you'd like to achieve before you die?
I'd like to get 1 million subscribers on my YouTube channel or I'd like to visit Australia and see a kangaroo.

10.  Which well-known South African personality would you, without a doubt, be able to beat in a street fight and why?
Justin Bonello (local chef and braai master).
