Level-headed, girl-next-door Marisia, one of the youngest ladies in the Bachelor mansion, is a speech therapist and audiologist whose job has taught her to adapt to different life situations. Making connections with everyone who enters her life is extremely important to her. In order to communicate more effectively with her patients, loving and kind Marisia learnt to speak Tswana.  She is fluent in five languages, including sign language and French.  She would love to be able to travel the world and recently completed a TEFL course at the University of Witwatersrand, which qualifies her  to teach English as a foreign language. She entered The Bachelor SA to step out of her comfort zone and challenge herself. Most of her friends are married and she would not mind having a ring on her finger as well – if it’s the right guy of course. Her favourite creature on earth is her little Yorkie, a cutie called Pepper.
