Mamiki is an avid outdoorswoman, taking part in running, golf and hiking, which is rather interesting seeing as she spent majority her adult life and school years doing absolutely nothing in terms of physical activity. She plans to definitely complete at least one Comrades before long (she’ll never forgive herself if she doesn’t) and would like to summit Mt Kilimanjaro.
