Guess who made it onto BET’s 10 Inspirational South African Women to Know list…me that’s who! Being honored by BET and in the company of legends like Lira, Bonang Matheba, Nandi Mngoma, and Lebo Mashile is actually somewhere on a bucket list I made once. So thank you BET for making this little African girl’s day!
nd the biggie fort the night an Honors Award for Best Publisher – EYEWITNESS NEWS!
Beating out the biggest news websites in the country for this accolade was such a thrill for the small but amazingly talented and committed EWN team. As the digital content (mama) manager that watches over just how hard they work to push the envelope every day, I couldn’t be any prouder!
I couldn’t believe I was named “The Media’s women media leaders of tomorrow” – yay me!
There is nothing that makes me prouder than being an African Female digital creative and it’s encouraging to see my name amongst women I admire so much… thanks The Media Online
So proud of my BET News family!

If you’ll remember I worked as a researcher , PA and social media activations person for the live shows at BET News for the duration of the elections.

On a side note: since I suggested we enter this award I’m especially chuffed with my contribution to this happening 🙂
In recognition of Nelson Mandela’s upcoming 94th birthday, GlobalGrind put together a video series documenting how ‘Born Frees’ experience freedom in New York. I was one of the ‘Born Frees’ interviewed. Sharing my love for my country and gratitude for the legacy he has left, was an honour!
