I am Okuhle Mosiuoa, a Social Entrepreneur and professional life coach. I am a person who does a lot for my community, however that did not enable me to put food on the table for my family. I am the eldest in my family, therefore, my sisters look up to me, and it is expected of me to help my single mom. I am so grateful to be able to assist my mom financially. The only thing that keeps me sane is having a vision and knowing what I want and that it cannot be created overnight. Patience, persistence and hard work are my top values.
My mentor inspired me to join RLabs. It has benefited me very positively, not only financially but mentally as well. Before I joined, I was starting to doubt myself, but now I’m oozing with confidence. I am more creative and more goal-oriented and I preach positive social impact because of RLabs.
Being part of RLabs has changed my life for the better. I can see potential and guide those younger than me. This opportunity is what I needed because things were tough during the Covid-19 pandemic. It takes some weight off my shoulders. I used to ask people to do logos and posters for me, but now I do it for other people, using my skills. I go above and beyond in my work by finishing a task efficiently and excellently.
I always encourage youth to keep knocking the doors will eventually open.
Thank you for the opportunity. I’m very grateful.
