Dr Sindi van Zyl

Dr Sindi was born and bred in Harare, Zimbabwe. Her mother was from KZN and her father from Zimbabwe. She moved to South Africa to study medicine at the University of Pretoria. She has always known she wanted to help people and at the tender age of 4 knew it would be by being a medical doctor. Today Dr Sindi is “multi-passioned” with medicine as her first love, radio broadcasting her second love and a combination of social media and writing a close third.
