I have won awards from NextGen for campaigns that we run in my previous agencies and I also won awards as an influencer.
I grew up with my grannie who didn’t get a chance to finish school but encouraged us to go to school and achieve great things.
I would go back to my younger self and tell him – never listen to anyone who says you can’t do something and always believe in yourself. Always keep your head up, no matter what happens in your journey. Persevere.
I would like to see a crime-free South Africa, a much safer place to raise a girl child. I would like to see leaders that will put the needs of people before their own benefits. I would also like to see the best innovations that will shape the world come to/from South Africa because we are equally capable.
