Know a bit more about me

I have a bubbly personality and enjoy being social and meeting new people. I am independent, reliable and will do the task at hand to the best of my ability with creative flair.

I attended St Mary’s DSG in Kloof and received my Matric Bachelor Pass in 2020.

Teams of 2nd years were paired together to work with NPO's and NGO's. We worked on a basic campaign and message for the brand to gain more popularity and volunteers.

Teams of Vega 3rd year and honors students, from all campuses in SA, are given teams paired with brands.
Along with Shoprite's marketing team and ours, we analysed the client brief to create an in depth strategy behind the campaign. 

Over the month we were guided by our informative and resourceful lecturers. David Kwaan and Farrell pushed us to think deeper to find the real issue why Shoprite was struggling to connect with the Gen Z audience.
