Community Manager

About me:

"Dynamite comes in small packages" that's how people who know me well describe me. I am a young, confident and smart female who is fearlessly ambitious. I am passionate about youth employment as I am currently a project consultant for a youth led start up called Craft Recruitment. Which is a recruitment agency for high performing millennials in South Africa. In University I studied Politics at the University of Johannesburg but I have predominantly found myself in community development roles. I am now the youngest Community Manager at OPEN workspaces. I started Global Shapers in 2014 by joining the hub as a spark. In 2015 under Raelene Rorke's curatorship I got made a shaper and a month from then I was unanimously voted the Hub's secretary. I have also sat on the Management Committee of Cheesekids for Humanity where I ran the soup kitchen site for Nelson Mandela day in Tshwane. I have also recently completed The Global Shapers Leader Academy programme with Domien Van Gool.
