Name: Pinty Nkanjeni
Previous season: Survivor South Africa: Immunity Island S8
Age: 30
Hometown: Cape Town
Pinty Nkanjeni grew up in the small rural town of Hogsback in the Eastern Cape, a magical town in the Amathole Mountains. After leaving school at 15, she moved to Cape Town and built herself up from scratch, receiving a scholarship to study UX design as well as getting a divemaster certification. 
After her work as a Rope Access Technician was interrupted by lockdown, she got involved with a non-profit organisation that aims to unite hospitality businesses with healthcare workers at the frontline of the fight against Covid-19 to help them stay closer to where they are working – work in which she has found a lot of meaning.
She feels she has grown a lot in the few months since her season of Survivor SA, growing more self-aware and identifying and addressing her character flaws. She had a strong work ethic around camp and was equally valuable in challenges, but her lack of social finesse and confrontational behaviour tripped up her game.
