PSASA Jhb Chapter - October 2019
Our first speaker will be Nondumiso Sibiya
Facts and reality: Are they helping you or dragging you down?
Nondumiso Sibiya is an inspired, driven, innovative, and imaginative 21 years young lady with a spark of always solving problems. She is a God-fearing woman and believes that through the application of biblical principles she is able to stay humble and optimistic. Going against the norm is the normality for Nondumiso. She constantly challenges the status quo and this mindset has helped her to be aware of things happening around her and identify problems within her existing environment. She sees opportunities where some see challenges.
Her family is still grappling with the fact that she dropped out of Wits for a teaching degree to work with waste. She is the Co-founder of Boombadotmobi, a waste management business platform that connects waste generators with waste collectors to facilitate the process of waste collection. To date she employs over 15 people from Diepsloot on part time basis. She has won the 2019 Fair lady Rising Star Award, Part of the Red Bull Amaphiko Academy
Her presentation is about how most people tend to allow their current circumstances to either drag them down or to determine their future. She tries to bring some positivity into those whose light is slowly going dim. She also shares why it is important to be aware of what is happening in your environment and knowing how it can affect you.
She will show us how to make decisions to alleviate the wrong impact towards us and how to seek to be a problem solver one day at a time. She uses her personal journey of growing up in Diepsloot Township and growing up in a child-headed family (her mother had to take a stay-in housekeeper job) to sustain our livelihood. Using her waste management company as an example, she explains how keeping a positive mindset amidst trying circumstances, can ultimately lead to living a positive life and achieving greater things.
