Candida completed her National Diploma in Architectural Technology at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in 2011. During this time she also spent 2 years gaining experience at ACG Architects and Development Planners as an Architectural Intern. Following the completion of her Diploma she went on to completing further work experience at Jenny Mills Architecture & Interiors for a year and a half. It was here where she further developed a love for Interior Design and one of the reasons for pursuing an additional qualification. However, before this step was taken, she decided to 'jetset' off to the Netherlands, where she spent a year as an au pair, while having the opportunity to travel throughout Europe. Upon her return to Cape Town, South Africa, she completed her Bachelor Degree in Interior Design. She is now an interior designer in Cape Town.
