Hi, I’m Pelontle Bontle Mosimege. I’m 26 years old and the founder and host of She Brigade.
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 financial institution. I am also a Certified Usability Analyst.
I grew up in a small town with little access to women and their success stories and after being in corporate and tech 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 from women that I would’ve wanted to hear when I was younger and starting out in my career.
I’m also a McKinsey Women Achievement Award 2020 runner up and Mail & Guardian 200 Young South Africans 2020 recipient.
