PURPOSE-LIVED, Ethel Mkonto in conversation with TSIBA Co-Founder and Chairperson Gia Whitehead.
Ethel Mkonto is a proud TSIBA Alumni and currently, works as Marketing Coordinator at TSIBA Business School. During her time at TSIBA she was recognised as a leader and role model amongst her peers, this is mainly because of her work through Enactus and various pay it forward initiatives. The highlight of her academic career was when she was one of ten students chosen to take part in an international exchange program. She was awarded the opportunity to go to Germany for two weeks.
Her passion and commitment to making a difference in education have led her to accept a position at TSIBA business school where she was able to directly impact the lives of students. At TSIBA she is responsible for events, social media and alumni relations. Her dream is to become a social entrepreneur to better the lives of people by providing them access to education and information. To empower underprivileged communities to find their purpose and letting them know that their circumstances don't define their future.
