Thokozile Mangwiro

I am born and bred in South Africa, Johannesburg. Now a superstar entrepreneur (haters may say self employed), I am driven by and passionate about empowering and inspiring other women to feel naturally beautiful through products that are made in South Africa, are of the highest quality, are beautiful and luxurious, and that are a must for the world.


Who remembers this story? No one much. Initially I did not want to be seen on national TV, in fact in the whole of Africa, pitching my passion and being told that I am not eligible for funding. What did they mean I was not eligible. Did they not see that I had gold in my hands? The fact of the matter is that I was not ready for that funding. Looking back I can see how I was not ready to be funded.
