Tell us a bit about why you decided to join Bellona?
As a young female in South Africa, who started my career at a very young age, I have personally experienced how difficult it is to break into the work sector as a young woman. Working in various industries, I have been exposed to all types of leadership and in all cases, women are still not being given the chance to showcase their potential. Women are also not being exposed to the endless opportunities that are available to them. I want to be able to empower women across all sectors through Bellona. I want to share my life experience with ALL women – no matter their race, colour or creed – who are still striving to weed out archaic prejudices in the workplace to make a deep meaningful, social impact.
