Summary

I’m efficient and meet deadlines with ease.
I’m hard working and enjoy learning new things. I work well under pressure and with people.
I have a Fashion and Marketing BA Degree
I am a mom to two beautiful children.

I completed two years at the VEGA school. One of the areas I was exposed to was media creation and our team created an AD that was entered into the National Doritos competition. We also completed a Music Video which involved filming, editing and putting the music video together as if it were going to be played on MTV.
I also got the opportunity to work as a team on an NGO, where we had to redesign their corporate identity, do signage for them, give them an outline of potential future plans they could use and a way in which they could get funding and people to want to help with funding. The NGO “Wilgespruit” is currently working on the ideas they gave them and putting them to use.
In 2008 I graduated from the Design School Southern Africa where I obtained my degree in Fashion design. During this time I learnt and developed many skills which included Garment construction where a range of wedding dresses I designed was used for exhibition at the 2008 Graduation ceremony. In first year My little girls dress was used during the presentation for potential new students. I obtained a distinction for LECTRA in my third year. I am a confident and dynamic young woman. I enjoy challenges and working on new and interesting projects.
