Written by Admin Published in Women's rugby

BBA sixth season contestant, Bernadina Buys, resurfaced at the official BBA party after years away from the public eye. The party brought together all former housemates to celebrate with this year’s winner, Dillish Mathews.

Bernadina is now pursuing a diploma in Human Resource Management at Lingua College and at the same time working in administration at Future Group.

The former reality show contestant was chosen for the first ever Namibian national women’s rugby team who played against Botswana this past weekend.

“I want to finish my diploma and then enrol for a degree course in Human Resource Management at the Polytechnic of Namibia. Between school and work I still find some time for rugby,” said the lanky lock forward.

Bernadina said that she has always been passionate about the sport and is happy to be part of the national squad and also pleased with the way the code has grown in the past few years.

“In 2008 we started the first female rugby club, the Keetmanshoop Amazons, in Namibia. I am very happy to see the sports grow so much and especially because I was instrumental in it. It is really nice to see our hard work pay off,” said Bernadina.

The bubbly Bernadina also said that she is still in contact with some fellow housemates even if it is only every now and then.

“We still communicate on Whatsapp, Facebook and Twitter. Mumba and I communicate on a weekly basis and I am actually saving up to go visit her very soon,” she said.

Bernadina further said her BBA experience is something she will cherish forever and keep close to her heart as it is something that has now become part of her. She said she appreciates the love she still receives from the people.

She added that she is extremely proud of Dillish for representing the Land of the Brave so well.

“I am very happy for her. She did us proud and it makes me proud to have been a BBA housemate from Namibia,” Bernadina said.

The national female rugby squad on Saturday demolished Botswana 31-10 in an international rugby friendly.
