Maggie explained that while her father had a good job in government, her mom continued to work as she never wanted to rely on anyone. She feels she gets this from her mother, who has been a driving force daily to keep going.

Being a young black girl from a rural area, Maggie had to fight back against the limitations which made most children from that area believe that they would not amount to much.

Maggie wants all little girls to know that "your dreams are valid" and that they should stop at nothing before achieving them. She was once a little girl with a dream, and now she's a boss babe living it!

It wasn't always mining, Maggie was into finance first

Growing up in a rural area where financial management isn't openly taught, Maggie saw the value in educating herself and entered the finance/business sector.

Her first business was actually called Fundza Financial Wellbeing, which offered financial planning solutions to the mining industry. It was from her that Fundza Training Institute was born.

Maggie doesn't only want to help inspire women to break into male-dominated industries like mining, she wants to help everyone reach their full potential.

One of the key things that Maggie gives a lot of her success to is finding the right support system. Maggie believes having supportive mentors is an invaluable asset to achieving your dreams!

Maggie hopes all women "pick a sister up" when they need a little lift and always remember our strength when we stand together!
