Welcome to my personal website. I’m committed to improving the lives of people the world over via digital(ICT) technologies. My 13 years of experience includes involvement in projects across e-Learning, e-Marketing and now e-Government.
My current position as Director: Online Platforms for the Communications department of the South African Government, has brought about a passion within me for e-Government and advocating the enabling role government ICT should play in Nation development. My portfolio currently includes Strategic management of the South African Governments’ Social media presence, Government Website Strategy and policy and the development of the first South African Government Mobile application. While there are essential services that government must provide; I believe government should also be building Information System platforms and infrastructure that enables the private sector to imagine and develop citizen-centric services. This infrastructure should also lay the foundation to ICT access in rural communities, as well as promote increased e-literacy through basic computer training courses. This website also has a portfolio of my work that spans across the e-Learning, e-Marketing and e-Government spheres of ICT.
I’ve recently been named as one of the Top 200 Young South Africans by the Mail and Guardian and you can read more about this award here.
In 2012 I co-founded a foundation called Inspirational Women International, it’s website is at www.iwomeni.org. iWi is an NPC that aims to promote gender equality and women empowerment. We have hosted a few workshops and are in the process of scaling up operations to reach a wider audience. I was accepted in the Tshwane hub of the World Economic Forum Global Shapers in 2013. The Tshwane hub consists of a dynamic grouping of youth leaders and I’m excited for the change we will bring about.
I’m happily married and have a joyful and energetic daughter. These two women mean the world to me, and a lot of what I do is with them in mind. This website aims to give you insight into my thoughts, interests and aspirations while at times offering a little peek into my experiences as I traverse this journey of life.
I hope you enjoy your stay on my site and don’t forget to add me on your favourite social network on the right.
