My name is Mariza Roux, owner of Biolink Kouga. I originally hail from a small farming community town in the Eastern Cape. An interesting fact about my French Huguenot origin, is that for decades, education has been the profession of choice in my family.
I started to work as facilitator for the Kouga Biolink agency at the beginning of 2019 and thoroughly enjoyed working with the children. I believe that my skills as a trained counsellor helped me to establish trust with each child.
When given the opportunity to buy over the Kouga Biolink agency, I did not think twice about it. I could not give up on the trust that I had established with the students and look forward to serving the Kouga community. I believe that each child is special as an individual, although their brain just functions differently to what is perceived as normal.
My background with the local Kouga newspaper, having been the administrator of the Kouga Business Forum and the committee that won Jeffrey’s Bay the “Dorp van die Jaar” title (hosted by KykNet) has put me in an ideal position with the contacts that I was able to build up over the years. Having established relationships with headmasters of schools, local business owners, printed media and social media will benefit my marketing projects.
My goal is to make a difference, one child at a time; helping them gaining confidence to excel in their immediate environment and to be individuals, equipped to reach their full potential. My previous career, as well as life experience, taught me perseverance, discipline as well as endearment for fellow human beings.
I believe that every child is gifted – they just unwrap their packages at different times and ways. My aim is to teach children that the MAGIC is INSIDE of them…and not OUT there
At Biolink Attention Training, we offer support, hope, answers, and solutions for children and adults with ADHD and other learning disorders or academic challenges. We also provide resources and training toward the continuous professional development of teachers, as required by die South African Council of Educators.
Study after study confirms children today are struggling more than ever before with academic, social, and behavioural issues that impact their success in school.
We want to take hands with parents and teachers to ensure our children get the best support and assistance when having academic or learning challenges. We strongly believe that the role parents play in the school system should be clearly defined, and teachers should be the inspirational leaders of a diverse world.
The only way we can do that, is by empowering parents and teachers. We want to generate new knowledge through a broad array of workshops, research materials, and supportive information, and use the content for classroom strategies.
