Recent Honours Graduate, University of Kwa-Zulu Natal
Thobeka‘s professional bio / interests
Hey , I am Thobeka a recent supply chain honours graduate and former president and project secretary of two of the most prestigious non-profit organizations at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. My professional career can be described as one that involved a lot of sacrifices, growth, perseverance and faith in believing what seems impossible. I have worked in multiple projects and led different teams which to be quite honest was difficult but rewarding at the same time. I believe that I have grown to become a person who values influence in leadership more than a position and thrives when working with teams rather than alone. Anyone who knows me well knows that I am person of principle and values. My core values are my moral compass that shape who I am becoming and the decisions I make on a daily basis. I also believe that I am a unique individual with a diverse range of skills and competencies that in most cases have caused me not to fit in certain crowds. I believe that every opportunity is worth grabbing whether it may be one that involves learning or connecting with different people around the world. It is the people that have the courage to make bold moves that most people are not willing to take that will be the leaders of tomorrow. Looking forward to connecting and learning

An interesting, or unusual fact(s) about me…
Well, I have many unusual things about me but one that I have realized is that I am a person who tends to hide her accomplishments whether big or small and enjoys celebrating others more. I'm slowly learning to celebrate myself and how far I've come but my humility still gets the best of me...

A career highlight
Honestly, till today I don't know how I was able to handle two leadership positions that were difficult and demanding, while pursuing my studies and still managed to persevere with excellence holistically. I have recognized my resilience in achieving my goals and it scares me sometimes, yet is rewarding.
