  • Numbers, data, forecasting… These topics excite you and provide you with the information needed to make informed decisions. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg’s book, Lean in: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead, is your bible and her support of women’s rights in the business world, your inspiration. You’ve already found your niche in information and technology; now it’s time to take that knowledge and apply it to become a leader in your field.

  • To others, success seems to come easily to you – but you know you’ve grafted to get to the glitzy world that is your life. With your charming personality and knack for connecting with people, you see every encounter as an opportunity to network. Bonang Matheba’s strict discipline and ability to adapt to her surroundings defines you to a tee. And, just like SA’s Queen B, your star is rising quickly.

Your integrity and moral compass help guide your decisions to making the right call, every time.
