What is your biggest success?

My biggest success was starting my own company and be able to feed mouths where I can. I had to come out of my comfort zone and start something that I never thought I would. In this process I grew mental and emotional, I knew that this is something that I was born di to the day I gave my presentation when applying for the business fund. Being an entrepreneur taught to me to value hard work and making people happy, I believe this is my purpose. My quality are I am passionate about customer service and you aim to exceed the expectations of your customers and employer, I am a hard worker, a positive and adaptable person, and you have excellent communication skills and I am ambitious and thrive on quantifiable targets and results.

What has been your biggest hurdle?

My biggest hurdle was when I didn’t pass my Matric well so that I can be able up study what I have always wanted to study,but I had to grew and understand that my life doesn’t revolve around that . When we finally stand on the edge of the chasm of nothingness and have the option of jumping and total surrender we feel the fear of death. Everyone has this experience the first time.From that day I told myself that I am not a family, I am going to be successful in what I was called yo be.
