Speech therapist (Gillian Adonis Speech Therapy)
I’m a proud South African woman who grew up in New Zealand, where I developed a love for interacting with people from all walks of life. In 2014, my family and I moved back to South Africa with the motivation that home is where our family is. I went from living and learning in English and Māori, to giving life my absolute best in Afrikaans, English, basic isiXhosa, and basic South African sign language.
Upon completing my studies at the University of Stellenbosch in 2020, I was blessed with the opportunity to do my community service year in “the home of suiwer Afrikaans” – Namakwaland! There I served 42 clinics and hospitals as the only speech therapist covering over 60% of the entire region. My love for our country, for our languages, and for our people deepened tremendously.
Looking back at the years passed since moving home, I have learnt that my faith, passion for serving, optimism and adaptability will get me through anything.
To me, the foundation of speech therapy is working with the heart of a servant. It is with a servant’s heart that one can practice speech therapy selflessly and lovingly, giving every patient your best.
