Mbali Dhladhla is a 21-year-old enthusiast and model inspiration for women. She was born and raised in Johannesburg, Soweto in a township called ‘Orlando West’.

The Rosebank College graduate obtained qualifications in Human Resources and she went to obtain Generic Management from SangeSA as part of the Eskom Pension Fund Leanership Program. She is an Executive Director at Esteemed African Queen- a 100% women-led Non-profit organization that aims to empower young women in the African continent by equipping them with strategies for their personal, educational and social development.

Mbali has always dreamt of embarking on a journey that involves making a difference in people’s lives, more typically being ‘women’, because she believes that women’s roles have been downplayed in today’s society.

“I believe that men and women can never be at the same level, but I strongly believe that women can be powerful in their own capacity,” she said.

“I don’t necessarily think that I have found someone that I share the same views with that I see myself as. There are people that inspire my thinking, but more than anything it would be my mom because as a young lady growing up, you see these things, you see what society identified women as, what families identify women as, and even in my own family, I could see my mom being downplayed,” she said.

“I could still see her rise up and not try to out-shadow a man, but rising up to the capacity she has, really fully looming to what she can offer and not try to measure up to anyone and that has truly been an inspiration,” Mbali added.

Amongst everything else, Mbali aspires to become an entrepreneur, starting as little as opening an ice cream business, to eventually investing in property. The hard work, time & efforts she put into communities speak for herself and what she stands for.

“I want people to remember me for my genuine spirit, the loving person that I am, the talkative person that I am, the free-spirited person I am. Apparently, I come across as someone with a very strong personality and character, she recites.

“I want people to remember me for the real me, my truth, as a child of God, my fighting spirit because I’m a very passionate person. I want people to remember me for touching lives and making a difference in other people’s lives,” she concluded.
