She Brigade is a platform that aims to empower through storytelling.
One person’s story can impact thousands. Through the platform we aim to act as the tool that allows women from everywhere to share their stories and to start the conversations that will help other young women know that they can overcome what ever challenges they face.
The name She Brigade stems from the idea that when women stand together as a unit or brigade there are endless opportunities and possibilities that can be unlocked.
On the podcast “She Brigade In Conversation”, host and founder, Pelontle Mosimege, sits down with women from different backgrounds in different careers as they share their stories and journeys that have led them to being who they are today.
We want to make African women’s stories known and accessible to everyone around the world.
Hi, I’m Pelontle Bontle Mosimege. I’m 27 years old and the founder and host of She Brigade, the Podcast.
Here’s a little bit about me.
I’m from Mafikeng, currently residing in Johannesburg. I obtained my Honours Degree in Informatics from the University of Pretoria and am currently working as a Business Analyst for a leading software engineering company.
I grew up in a small town with little access to women and their success stories and after being in corporate AND I.T. for a while (a white male-dominated field and industry) I really longed to hear from women that looked like me. I figured if I felt that way, there must be some other women who feel the same way.
I love the quote ‘Be who you needed when you were younger’ and that’s what I aim to do with She Brigade. To share the kinds of stories of women that I would’ve wanted to hear from when I was younger and starting in my career.
I hope you enjoy the podcast.
