Last night I had the honor to attend the South African Council for Business Women PJ’s and Pillow Talk event as part of the 10 finalists in the SACBW Youth Project Competition.
As the PJ’s and Pillow Talk event was hosted in June, they thought it appropriate to host a competition for young business minded ladies as ourselves, and offer us amazing oppurtunities.
*All of those tables were filled!
We had the chance to meet and mingle with business women of all ages and ethnicities, from various businesses as well.
We had an amazing dinner and even better dessert (obviously), the arena was beautifully decorated (thanks Emnotweni Sun), and the cash bar was a bonus! (Queue tequila)
I met some fantastic young ladies; Lindelwa (Lee), a model/ / / , Nomsa, fashion designer and owner of her own business and fashion line Angelique’s, Sanel, a Financial Information System graduate, Adante’, a graphic designer and aspiring photographer, Adriana, the quintest 20 year old chef, and many more.
And not only was I lucky enough to have met these amazing ladies, but I won First Prize for my essay on my passion, charity work and business! I was blessed to have received spa vouchers from FreyJa, a ticket to a 4 hour Performance Booster Seminar and last but not least, a bursary for a Business Course at the local Unigrad!
