Junior Project Manager
Ruchelle is an Afrikaans translator and project manager at Folio Online, and holds a BA in Humanities, an Honours degree in Translation and Editing, and an MA in Translation, all from Stellenbosch University. Her love of languages was sparked by exposure to literature as a child, and she’s now an avid fan of crime thrillers, particularly Deon Meyer’s novels. A self-described ‘foodie’, Ruchelle loves trying out new restaurants whenever possible and enjoying the unique atmosphere of each new place. Her family is her first priority, with visits to her parents’ farm in the Tsitsikamma being the highlight of any holiday. One day, Ruchelle hopes to travel the world and write her own novels.
