Today we’re finding out a bit more about Pinky and what motivates her to make a difference.

Q: What inspired you to start the BigSister LittleSister Foundation?

A: Firstly this quote is my main driver when it comes to running the foundation by Toni Morrison “ “I tell my students, ‘When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else. This is not just a grab-bag candy game.”

I grew up in a rural area, and I didn’t have the privilege of a lot of information I made a lot of mistakes, and today I am still fixing them, and my personal story inspired me to start the foundation.  I wanted to create a platform that empowers and inspires young girl to do better so that they can have a better head start.

Q: What has been your most memorable/ favourite activation to date, and why?

A: It was Dawn’s ‘Win A Business’ Campaign – it was a national campaign. The Dawn brand went in search of empowering women by rewarding them with the business of their choice. This was such a great campaign. From being part of the activation on the ground – that ran across the country –  to the top three winners that went for business training, and from there, a winner was picked—and then setting up a full business for the winner. The lady that won wanted to start a beauty business, that was in 2016, and to this day her business is still thriving in Newcastle. The second runner-up was offered a year of studying and went on to study Education through Unisa. She completed her degree and is now a Teacher .

Q: What is your favourite thing about Durban?

A: The warm weather, the beach, and definitely the people

Q: If someone was visiting Durban for the first time, what would be your top 3 venue suggestions?

A: Definitely explore Umhlanga or Ballito for the food, the beach, and social spots.

Max Lifestyle for some township, music, and a Shisanyama experience.

The Valley of 1000 hills for some culture. And a bonus is Oribi Gorge, for the adventure and games.
