The SPCA of Wake County (SPCA Wake) helps pets and people in over half of the counties across NC through collaborative partnerships. SPCA Wake is an animal welfare agency headquartered in Raleigh, NC. Donations keep families together, make frontline rescue work possible, and save pets and people in crisis across NC. SPCA Wake is an independent, 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization and shelter, Our mission is to transform the lives of pets and people through protection, care, education, and adoption. Our vision is to create a humane community. Funded by charitable support, we provide vital community programs that pick up where local government agencies leave off. For 52 years, we have provided comprehensive support services to companion animals in need with sheltering, care and adoption services. We provide people-focused programs that keep families and pets together, including spay/neuter assistance programs, affordable access to basic pet vaccines and preventative care, delivery of pet food and supplies for home-bound, low-income seniors, professional pet behavior assistance, disaster relief and response efforts, and youth education programs that promote empathy. The SPCA of Wake County operates two separate animal shelters and each facility serves a different purpose. The SPCA Curtis Dail Pet Adoption Center, built in 2003, is located at 200 Petfinder Lane in Raleigh and provides pet adoption, public education, and pet supplies through its on-site retail store. The Adoption Center location does not accept incoming animals. The SPCA Admission Center, built in 1971, at 327 Highway 70 East in Garner, accepts incoming animals from the public by appointment only. We also transfer as many animals as possible from the Wake County Animal Center, as well as other animal sheltering organizations around the area. Limiting intake allows the SPCA to effectively manage its shelter capacity and prevent the euthanasia of homeless animals for reasons such as space or time. The SPCA opened The Saving Lives Spay/Neuter Clinic adjacent to the SPCA Pet Adoption Center in 2009. The clinic provides sterilization surgery for all SPCA animals prior to adoption, as well as pets owned by the public. Because the North Carolina Veterinary Practice Act prevents us from providing services to owned animals, the physical clinic space is leased to a veterinarian who operates the clinic independently, but in collaboration with, the SPCA.
The mission of Southside Animal Shelter is to rescue healthy and treatable dogs and cats at risk of euthanasia, nurture and restore them to happy healthy lives in loving homes, and reserve euthanasia for those animals, in a veterinarian's professional opinion, who are in a state of terminal suffering or have been determined aggressive. Rosie Ellis is shelter founder as well as its Executive Director. From the very first kitten she rescued, she put her heart and soul into rescue. As an industry peer recently said, Rosie was rescuing before ‘rescue’ was even a thing. She has such an incredible connection with animals and never seems to tire or grow weary of working on their behalf. Even to this day, although she has likely been part of rescuing tens of thousands of at-risk dogs and cats, she can’t share a story about animals at the shelter without coming to tears. A longtime resident of Indianapolis’ Southside, Rosie started rescuing stray kittens in her home in 1987 and in 1994 she and her son purchased the property where the shelter current resides. After receiving her 501(c)3 status in 1995 and winning zoning approval, she and her staff starting building what you see today as Rosie’s Southside Animal Shelter. She has always been and continues to be an active member of the rescue and shelter community and works collaboratively with other leaders to reduce the suffering and pain of Indianapolis’ at-risk dog and cat community. Rosie received the Channel 6 Leadership Award for the work she’s done with companion animals, in 2009, Southside Animal Shelter received the Belle Award from WFYI, Planet Soul and Puddlejump Pictures and continues to receive local recognition for her work on behalf of Indianapolis’ animal population. Without fundraising or marketing staff and not having any city contracts, Southside has always depended upon adoption fees, donations from Southside’s wonderful and supportive community as well as and the support of grants. Although Rosie has often donated her own money as well as her time, some years it has been difficult to make ends meet. Somehow though, as Rosie says, “we always find a way and something always comes through… often at just the right time.” Southside has long been a family affair, with Rosie’s husband and son and daughter-in-law as her number one fans. Whether it was their support as board members, with dollars or with in-kind services, the Ellis family has always been standing right beside Rosie in her quest to save as many animals as she could. In addition to the importance of family, longtime staff and volunteers have been critical to Southside’s ability to rescue, rehabilitate and place at risk dogs and cats. Ultimately though, Rosie knows it isn’t just Rosie, her staff or her volunteers that make the most difference, it is instead the entire rescue community that together are making progress and improving the lives of so many. How long will Rosie keep at it? Her answer? “…for as long as the good Lord allows me to walk.”
Storm's Angels is a companion animal rescue located in Northeast Ohio. We work to rescue and rehabilitate companion animals and place them into homes. We are a volunteer run foster based companion animal rescue.Storm’s Angels was created in honor of the founder’s first dog “Queen Night Storm” who was rescued from a puppy mill. She ended up becoming diabetic and then slowly lost her eyesight and hearing as she aged. Storm lived 7 years as a diabetic and was managed at home. She developed degenerative myelopathy around 11 years old and was in a wheelchair until she passed away from bladder cancer at almost 14. Storm’s Angels saves companion animals in her honor. We focus on animals who are not considered adoptable. We work to rehabilitate these animals and place them into forever homes.
Street Tails Animal Rescue began in 2001 as a one woman effort to literally save one dog at a time. Initially operating out of her pet store, The Chic Petique, founder Lindsay Condefer spent years pulling and adopting out one dog at a time. In 2010, with the help of friends and supporters, her dream to help even more dogs in need became a reality. The operation blossomed into its own location. Since then, the number of animals STAR has helped find loving homes has grown exponentially. Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping the homeless, unwanted and abandoned dogs in the Philadelphia area. Our goal is to pull local animals out of shelters and find them loving, forever homes. To us, rescue is about saving a life, and each animal’s life, no matter the cost, is worth saving. Since our animals often require extra care and support, covering the costs is our greatest challenge.
The Rescued Dog is a non-profit, all-breed dog rescue in San Diego, CA. We consist of a network of fosters and volunteers dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating dogs in need throughout California and Mexico. We are committed to placing dogs in loving, forever homes and educating adopters on the responsibilities of dog ownership. The Rescued Dog strives to work with local area shelters and other rescue groups to create a better world for homeless pets. The founders of The Rescued Dog forged our bond during our volunteer work together at a local dog rescue. We recognized in each other a mutual respect for our human friends and the dogs we were helping to rescue. When the time came to start our own rescue, our collective mission was clear: save at-risk dogs from high-kill shelters and place them in loving, forever homes for the benefit of the dogs and humans alike. We believe the best way to end pet overpopulation and animal cruelty is a unified front with local shelters, other rescue groups, and the community. While The Rescued Dog is currently a foster-based rescue, our long-term goal is to have a kennel and training facility, which will enable us to increase our number of rescues and take time to train and, if needed, rehabilitate dogs in need. The founders of The Rescued Dog are committed to saving the right dogs for the right people, and offering support and education to ensure a successful forever situation for both our dogs and the humans who adopt them.

Maddie's Fund offers the industry a national voice, important funding opportunities, learning resources and easy access to network connect and share ideas to keep people and pets together. Maddie was a beloved Miniature Schnauzer whose unconditional love, loyalty and spirit inspired a revolution. Dave and Cheryl Duffield founded Maddie's Fund® in 1994 to honor their delightfully feisty dog. While playing together in the living room one evening, they made her a promise: If they ever had any money, they would use it to help companion animals and the people who love them, so they could experience the same joy they had with Maddie. The rest, as they say, is history. Dave and Cheryl made good on that promise after successfully launching several technology companies. In their lifetime, they have given more of their personal wealth to animal welfare than any other individuals. All thanks to Maddie. Achieving a no-kill nation today is not only possible, it’s inevitable. This outcome however did not always seem certain. When we look back at the movement’s start in the 1970s, we can appreciate just how far we’ve come to making no-kill a reality. Conversations held 40 years ago seem absurd today. They centered on the best way to kill shelter animals rather than ways to save them. The generally accepted method was a decompression chamber, the save rate was 12%, and no one wanted to talk about it. Practices and ideas from this time included: killing all females as a method of birth control; death was considered a "kindness"; and minimal veterinary care provided in the shelters. Volunteer programs were rare. Foster care practically nonexistent. And it was believed people with jobs shouldn’t have pets. In fact, the general attitude was the public couldn’t be trusted to adopt pets.
Best Friends Animal Society is a leading national animal welfare organization dedicated to ending the killing of dogs and cats in America's shelters. In addition to running lifesaving programs in partnership with thousands of animal welfare groups across the country, Best Friends has regional centers in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Salt Lake City, and operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals. Founded in 1984, Best Friends is a pioneer in the no-kill movement and has helped reduce the number of animals killed in shelters nationwide from an estimated 17 million per year to about 347,000. That means there are still more than 950 dogs and cats killed every day in shelters, just because they don’t have safe places to call home. We are determined to bring the country to no-kill by the year 2025. Working collaboratively with shelters, rescue groups, other organizations and you, we will end the killing and Save Them All. By choosing to adopt a pet from a shelter, you are saving a life. Plus, no matter what type of dog or cat you're looking for, you're sure to find your new best friend at a shelter, where there are wonderful pets of every breed, size and age. You can also adopt from the Best Friends Lifesaving Center in Salt Lake City. Each pet at the center comes from a Utah shelter and is vaccinated, spayed or neutered and microchipped before going into a new home.
To Love a Canine Rescue, Inc. (TLC) is a non-profit, all-breed, foster-based dog rescue operating in suburban Philadelphia, PA. Our mission is to rescue and find permanent homes for abandoned, stray and surrendered dogs in order to minimize the needless euthanizing of animals. Our vision is to make the right connections between our rescued dogs and families in order to give our dogs their final, happy, loving homes. TLC strives to be a valuable resource to our community by working with struggling dog owners and by providing education on responsible dog ownership including the importance of spaying/neutering, behavior training, heartworm testing & prevention, and microchip implanting. TLC was born in the spring of 2013 when our eight founding members decided they wanted to combine their collective experience in pet rescue and community service into one organization. We have a mutual passion, and a unified vision, for saving dogs as well as a thirst to educate the community on reducing the number of dogs needing rescue. At TLC, bonding with our dogs is very important. Rather than going to a shelter where they often become depressed and withdrawn, our dogs join us in our warm, comfortable homes where they thrive with attention and love. As soon as dogs arrive in our foster homes, we begin house training when necessary, and work on basic manners. Our dedicated foster families socialize and interact with the dogs to learn their strengths and understand their challenges. It is important to evaluate personality and temperament of our dogs to better facilitate placement in homes in which their needs and the family’s lifestyle and experience are in alignment. Our dogs receive an enormous amount of love and the medical attention necessary to ensure good health. TLC dogs are spayed or neutered, and brought up to date on shots appropriate for their age. They are also microchipped prior to being placed in their new homes. It is our goal to connect devoted families to loving dogs in need of their everlasting home. We believe in being very honest with our potential adopters and we present everything we learn about our rescues in order to make sure we have a successful adoption. Additionally, TLC foster families and associated trainers will work with adoptive families to ensure a smooth transition and help facilitate additional support and training that may be needed to create and maintain a stable and happy home for our dogs. From puppies to seniors, there is a perfect dog out there for everyone. We pride ourselves on making the right connection between dog and family in order to give our dogs their final, joyful, loving home. Ultimately, our wish would be for empty shelters, so no dog is left behind… until they all have a home.
Cheryl-Lyn's Rescue Organization, CRO, previously known as D.A.R.T., was founded by Cheryl-Lyn Potgieter in 2015. After years of working tirelessly inside and outside our community and informal settlements, combating animal neglect and abuse, Cheryl-Lyn has at last received her NPO Certificate and number. This event has led to the name change from D.A.R.T. to CRO (which stands for Cheryl-Lyn’s Rescue Organisation). Through the years, Cheryl-Lyn has been rescuing animals from the most horrific conditions day and night, 7 days a week, rehabilitating and re-homing, and all of this with her dwindling personal funds and donations from the public. To this end, even her own private space is completely filled up with severe cases of abuse and neglect. Cheryl-Lyn is also called when deceased animals are found alongside roads and she will collect them and take them to a vet for possible identification. She also, in consultation with our veterinarians, makes the heart rendering decision as to which animals are too far gone and need to be euthanased. In her quest to help animals, Cheryl-Lyn has been bitten (most recently in the face), electrocuted when scaling a wall to help a stuck puppy, chased down by dogs, escorted into Du Noon by the SAPS or Law Enforcement to retrieve severe cases of neglect, tracked dogs for hours waiting for them to tire themselves out before she can “catch” them. Cheryl-Lyn's Rescue Organization has since put together a team of dedicated animal loving volunteers, to assist Cheryl-Lyn in raising funds, securing foster homes, doing marketing, networking and sharing with all other animal rescue organisations, working around the clock to support animals in distress.

I am a very healthy and motivated individual. My major corporate achievements have been the implementation and setup of the 1st and current South African National Lotteries and my most recent achievement has been the setup of a Scratch Card Lottery in Zambia. One is never too old to experience and learn new things, I have now entered the digital arena, this is certainly exiting and the way forward.
I am a young vibrant lady full of energy and emotions. Born and raised in Kinshasa, DR Congo in a family of 5 children. I am the 3rd. I have studied nursing, I worked for few years as a nurse then I have changed professions and followed the path of customer service. My love for meeting new people and helping people resolve their issues has brought me there. I love challenges and I am not afraid to face one.

My name is Noxolo Femele and I'm 42 years old and I have 2 kids both are girls age 17 and 13 years of age. I have worked at 43 Air School as a Receptionist for the past 5 year and, while I was there I used to help out at the Admin area and at the Marketing department. That's where I got the interested on becoming 1 of the Managers but unfortunately we got retrenched. Then I went and work at Lendcor group as a Sales consultant for 1 year 6 months same we got retrenched. That's where I decided to start my small business just to put food on the table until now but things are not doing well due to covid19.
I am a God fearing individual ,and I’m also a father to two beautiful kids, a boy and a girl. I worked for Tekkie Town as a Sales Assistant and I was chosen as the best Sales person for the entire Mpumalanga province. I also worked for the Department of agriculture as a Data capture. I have a passion for sports, football is one of my favourites and one day I wish I can own a soccer team. While I was in high school, I always wanted to be a lawyer but due to financial constraints I could not become one. My interest in the justice system came when I realised that the late former president Mr Nelson Mandela was also a lawyer representing his people. I wish one day I could give back to my community and its people because my community gave us the likes of the late Steve Bantu Biko, one of the BCM Members who fought for the people of South Africa. My community is one of the underdeveloped communities of this country, but I know that one day all of this will change because I know that with education anything is possible. When a child is educated communities will change for the better and if one community changes, then our country will change for the better as well and poverty will be no more. Education topped with one’s perseverance is the key to a bright future for all. With this pandemic people have lost their jobs and in some households you find that no one is working and people resort to drugs and alcohol, some get depressed to a point of taking their own lives. If we can start developing jobs for people, our continent would become a better place for us all. Being part of an initiative that supports the empowerment of those less privileged is one of my greatest wishes. I will be glad if all my wishes do come through because nothing is as important as education and hard work, and an educated country means a better world for us all.
Twenty-five years ago, a Khayelitsha community member saw that his neighbours did not know how to care for their pets. He took a shopping trolly and went door-to-door, feeding dogs and cats and educating people on their pets’ needs. Mr Joe Manchu soon attracted volunteers including many community children. A bath was donated which was used for dipping pets with fleas and ticks. Thereafter a shipping container was donated which became the first ever animal clinic in Khayelitsha. Today, 25 years later, Mdzananda Animal Clinic is celebrating a quarter century of helping, healing and rescuing pets in Khayelitsha. The clinic now treats over 1,000 animals per month through their hospital facility, homeless shelter, mobile clinics and outreach programmes. Throughout this time, they have also put the pets’ human companions at the forefront, educating, earning trust and working with them to become the best pet guardians they can be. Today Mdzananda Animal Clinic is treating up to 1000 Khayelitsha pets per month through hospitilisation, operations, sterilisation, consultations, mobile clinics, an animal ambulance, homeless pet adoptions and humane education. In the community for the community.

The Voorhees Animal Orphanage (“VAO”) is a 501-c-3, non-profit Municipal Animal Shelter dedicated to providing shelter, food and medical care to stray and unwanted animals until permanent homes can be found. We are an open-intake animal shelter serving 26 municipalities in Southern New Jersey, 19 of which are in Camden County. Although the Voorhees Animal Orphanage serves more than half of Camden County, NJ, we do not receive any operational or financial support from the County. The only income we receive are the monthly fees we receive from the municipalities that we serve, and adoption fees. Otherwise, we rely very heavily upon the generosity of charitable donations to help us meet our budget. We are also an Adoption Center. That means when space allows, we are able to rescue cats & dogs from over-crowded, high-kill shelters and rescues. We work with local, regional and national shelters and rescue groups, saving lives wherever and whenever we can. In 2019 we were able to save the lives of over 1,800 cats and dogs who made their way to our shelter. We have saved over 33,000 lives since our inception in 1988. We do not discriminate against any breed, nor do we turn an animal away due to medical conditions or age. Each and every animal in our shelter receives individual consideration and attention, regardless of the number of animals we may have in our care. We believe that every animal has the right home and family waiting for them. Our goal is to operate to meet or exceed a 90% live release rate (a.k.a., “No-kill”).
My name is Glorymar Hernandez, but I prefer to be called “Glory”. I was born in the capital of Venezuela, Caracas, and grew up amid the crowds of the city, the tranquility of the Andean mountains and the joy of the Caribbean coast. A mixture that has taught me to enjoy wherever I am, that aroused my curiosity to know the world, and that has helped me to adapt, with relative ease, to changes. I have a degree in Philosophy, my research works are in Philosophy of Language. Since 2019 I have been working as a Spanish teacher. I decided to start teaching my mother tongue thanks to my experience learning other languages. I had the opportunity to live for a year in Ireland, where I went to learn English and, currently, I am in Italy, where I have had the opportunity to learn Italian. These experiences allowed me to realize that, although seeking perfection when trying to “speak like a native” is the ideal, what really matters is being able to communicate, make ourselves understood and be open to the experience of knowing other cultures and understand that there are many different points of view. Professionally, I have had the opportunity to work in different contexts such as banking, outsourcing consular procedures, and teaching at university level. The biggest lesson I learned from these experiences is that I am not an office person. I prefer to own my time and have the freedom to work wherever I am. For this reason, I have decided to dedicate myself to teaching Spanish online and to enter the digital world. I consider myself a very curious and versatile person, that is why in my free time I enjoy handcrafting (such as sewing or knitting), volunteering, being in contact with nature, and trying to learn new things, like playing the guitar. Regarding my geographical preferences, the beach and the mountains are my main refuges, because I can escape from the noise of the city and connect with myself. That is why I would like to be able to live with my husband on a mountain, not far from the sea.
I’m Toni-Leigh, born and bred in the Mother City of Cape Town. My fiancé and I, are parents to a lively 2-year old girl who arrived 5 years after losing our 3-year old son to a rare genetic disease. I love learning new things. Growing up, I was a voracious reader, reading anything and everything (even the classifieds and property ads) and with the advancement of technology over the years, I can have information at the tip of my fingers, so I’m always eager to learn new things and I’m a fast learner. I’ve always had an interest in Information Technology and was the go-to person in my office before my colleagues would go to the IT office, and now I’m looking into further studies so that I can develop my knowledge and skills. In 2005 I graduated from Varsity College with a Diploma in Travel and Tourism with aspirations of travelling worldwide in my profession. Things didn’t quite work out that way, having worked in retail and a company assisting young people to live and work in the UK. In the last decade or so, I’ve been in the tourism industry behind the scenes, working for an online holiday accommodation booking agency and more recently a company that does tours and safaris in Southern Africa. I also do freelance work remotely, such as, captioning for a speech-to-text service and social media evaluation. I am an introvert but enjoy working with and being in the company of others, while also enjoying being on my own. In the past I used to view being an introvert as a weakness because those higher up in the ranks of the companies I worked for were extroverted but in recent times I realised how much of a strength it is being an introvert as I also have a strong sense of empathy, which I believe is key in Customer Service and building interpersonal relationships with colleagues and clients. I’m passionate about customer service and going the extra mile and l love that feeling of knowing that I’ve made a difference in someone’s day whether big or small. People tend to describe me as hardworking, punctual, efficient, dependable and trustworthy. Covid-19 affected the tourism industry drastically, however, I still want to travel anywhere I can, just soaking up the different cultures and experiences. The last year has been both challenging and rewarding and it has made me see things in a different light and so it has been somewhat of a new beginning for me. I am motivated now more than ever to seek out new passions and adventures and to get out of my comfort zone.
Dog Is My CoPilot is a 501(c)3 that transports at-risk animals from overcrowded shelters to adoption centers in other geographic regions where loving families are waiting. Peter E. Rork, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon and lifelong pilot, co-founded the organization in 2012 with the goal of saving as many animal lives as possible. We work collaboratively with city shelters, local animal welfare organizations and individuals in fifteen western states to coordinate transports. We provide our air services at no cost to the shelters and adoption centers with whom we partner. Since our inception, we have helped save the lives of over 16,500 dogs and cats with our transport flights. Every year in the US, approximately 733,000 shelter pets are euthanized because there is no room for them in municipal shelters. We are working to reduce euthanasia rates by transporting animals from overcrowded shelters to adoption centers in other communities where loving homes are waiting to adopt the animals. We fly as many animals as possible in a single flight to maximize efficiency and do not charge partner organizations for our transport services. As opposed to long-distance ground transportation or the red tape of commercial flights, transporting animals by plane is efficient and affordable — just $100 per animal, per flight. Since its founding, we have grown from saving a few hundred lives a year to more than 5,000 annually. Our success is due supporters like you and our dedicated team of shelters, adoption centers, and volunteers.

“Fall down seven times, stand up eight.” A Japanese proverb close to my heart. It has helped me persevere in so many situations in life and those situations have molded me into the woman I am today. Here’s a brief introduction to who I am. I am a new mommy to an adorable baby boy. A jack of all trades. I’m an artist at heart, fitness enthusiast, avid reader, and quite academic. I was born on the 9th of August in the year 1996 in Elim, a small village in the Limpopo Province. I grew up in Johannesburg and later moved to Pretoria in 2006 when I was in Grade 4, where I completed the rest of my school career. I have always been one to participate in almost every extra-mural activity since my primary school years, I played softball, hockey, and cricket. I took part in cross-country and district athletics to name a few. My love for sports made me gravitate towards what I currently do part-time, I train on a regular basis, and I am a wellness coach and a distributor for a prominent nutrition brand. A large part of what I do involves helping people correct their nutrition and learn more about the benefits of healthy eating so that they can lead a healthier lifestyle and feel great while they are at it. I have been involved in various projects that involved giving back to those in need. I have been involved with an initiative called Feed a Homeless Homie, where we made food for the homeless and distributed it at least one weekend a month, I also helped a friend of mine with a pads drive for less fortunate girls, I also give clothes to homeless shelters for women and children whenever I can and I worked with an NGO known as Keep That Gold Shining (KTG) where we tutored young kids in high schools in the townships. I am a philanthropist at heart and believe that even the smallest contribution goes a long way. As mentioned I am also an artist, mostly self-taught. I do painting on commission as well as pencil sketching. I do not have a specific style as yet but most of my work features women from different walks of life. I would like to collaborate with more artists in the future and have exhibitions. I try to read at least one book a month. My favorite writers have always been James Patterson and Dan Brown however I recently branched out to other genres besides suspense and thrillers. Some of my latest reads are: • Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki • Atomic Habits by James Clear • The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho • Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie • No Longer At Ease by Chinua Achebe I can speak at least 6 of the 11 official languages, I am fairly tech-savvy. I am a quick learner, always willing to pick up a new skill. Life has thrown several curve balls at me and I never backed down. I strongly believe in working hard and not giving up on anything I do. My name means ‘Be Strong’, that is who I am!
Wamkelekile (‘Welcome’ in isiXhosa) to one and all! My name is Iman Martin – ‘Iman’ having both Arabic and African meanings for ‘faith’. Just like my name, I come from a multicultural background: my mom has Indian and Malaysian origins, while my dad is from the Griqua people/clan in South Africa. In the same vein, I am a Muslim and have Christian relatives with who I am very close. It is because of my diverse background that I feel I was raised to be both tolerant and respectful towards those that are of a different culture, religion, or ethnicity. Cape Town has been the only home I know, and I’ve never ventured far out of it. I do however envision myself travelling to different parts of the world a few years from now. I am passionate about women’s empowerment and women having the choice to choose for themselves! I have recently graduated from the University of Cape Town, with a Bachelor of Social Work (Psychology Major) and placed on the Dean’s Merit List, awarded for consistent academic achievement. Through hard work and perseverance, I was fortunate to have received a scholarship from the Department of Social Development for three of my four years of study. My mini-thesis explored the experiences and challenges of 1st-year students at UCT adjusting to university. Studying social work has not only allowed me to better understand those around me and their thought processes but also, to better understand myself and the possible reasons why I am the way I am. As part of my course requirements, I had to complete field practicals – by putting the theory that I was learning in class to practice in a real-world environment. My field practice experience ranged along a spectrum: from providing social work services to underprivileged youth in a primary school in Bonteheuwel, to interning in the more affluent area of Upper Wynberg, at an international school. This experience further fostered my innate empathy and non-judgemental outlook for those around me. I am someone who is not afraid to get my hands dirty, work hard and help out where I can: currently job hunting, I have occasionally been helping my father with renovations to his property that include painting, plastering, applying putty, etc. This has taught me many practical things that I hope to apply when I own my own house one day. A few months before now, I worked as a Personal Assistant to a therapist and social worker. This was a remote job that taught me valuable organisation and time-management skills. In my early years of study, I found myself working a sales assistant job at the Robben Island Museum Gateway store, and found that my favourite part of the job was interacting with the different tourists that happened upon our humble store and hearing their stories – where they were from and why they decided to visit SA, etc. I love reading, and since a young age, I’ve been considered a bookworm. I mainly enjoy supernatural and sci-fi novels and webcomics, as well as other forms of content such as newspaper and magazine articles (need to know what’s happening in the world around me). English was also my favourite subject at school, and I think this was also encouraged by my English-teacher mother who was quick to correct any incorrect grammar and pronunciation when my siblings and I spoke incorrectly. I often assisted her in marking her learners’ English examination scripts and as a result, am quick to pick up on spelling or grammatical errors. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, long walks with my dog Ninja, and photography. This has led me to submit a piece that is currently being exhibited at the Zeits Mocca Art Museum, in their long-running ‘Home is Where The Art Is’ exhibition. Furthermore, my faith has given me strength through the darkest times and taught me to be tolerant and understanding of those around me. I am still very much figuring life and myself out as I go along and am always open to learning from those around me.
I was born in Port Elizabeth (now Gqeberha), South Africa. I’m an outgoing person who is both introverted and extroverted depending who I’m with. I enjoy meeting and interacting with new people because I believe this is how you learn and grow as a person. I’m forever looking for new adventures or challenges. I’m a go-getter, never afraid to fail because we learn more from our failures and build character from them. I believe one is never too old to learn something new things. “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” doesn’t apply in my life. I enjoy the outdoors especially hiking, which has exposed me to some of the most beautiful hiking trails in South Africa. I also love taking game drives and explore our nature especially the animals in their natural habitats. I haven’t had the opportunity to travel beyond the borders of my country. Hopefully one day I’ll travel the world, meet different people and get to experience diverse cultures and cuisines. I had dreams of becoming a medical doctor but due to financial difficulties I settled for a National Diploma in Biomedical Technology. At least I got to work in the medical environment with doctors and other medical personnel for about 5 years. I realised that working in a laboratory was not suitable for my personality because I love people, I enjoy interacting with different people. I enrolled for a Diploma in Marketing and that led me to the pharmaceutical industry where I combined both my medical background and the marketing qualification. I worked in Sales and Marketing departments. I also had the opportunity to turn my passion for fashion into a business adventure and started my online clothing store which was a very exciting and challenging adventure. I learned a lot about importing and e-commerce. When motherhood happened and I took a break to become a stay home mom. I got involved in fitness and nutrition business. I realised that the entrepreneurship bug has got me and needed to empower myself to avoid mistakes I made in my previous business adventures, that is when I decided to register for a BCom degree in entrepreneurship via Unisa, which what I’m currently busy with. I am also teaching English as a foreign language online on freelance basis. I plan to also learn one or two foreign languages as I plan to travel the world in the not-so-distant future. I’m excited about the future and learning more in this university of life.

I care deeply about workplace professionalism. I regard myself to be a very open minded person, ready for new challenge when it comes to technology. People consider me to be a social, temperament person who does not hesitate in giving my opinion for what I think and believe in.

My Bio will tell you about my past and present. The past is important but nothing is more important as the present ME! The Beautiful and strong ME! The ME that makes the people who know and love me happy to be in my presence, the present me is what matters. My values and morals and my way of thinking are what is important, the past was just the "making of", the preview one see's of movies and series, the past is an ancient scroll where most of my life is narrated by my parents, teachers, siblings and the other significant people who come and go from one's life, My present is the true picture of what I am and who I am so let me give you insight into who I am: I am a straight talker yet I am loving and a helpful person who is always willing to learn new things, I follow rules only when it makes sense and is fair. I was born to a mixed-race couple in the "old South Africa (during apartheid)" while the political climate was unstable and in its rebirth stage, my mixed-race background has made me culturally rich. Ancestrally I come from a diverse lineage, I have a Scottish and Irish father, a mother with little french a little Indian (Afghan and Pakistani), I have a little of everything, which has made me the odd one out as I look different from the rest of my family, I do not fit in with the brown people, I do not fit in with the white people and there is nothing wrong with that I do not need to be labeled to feel like I belong, I am one of the reasons why our country is known as the rainbow nation a mix and mashed beautiful product of all that is good. My personality and likes have made me the odd one out and the weird one, luckily my husband is just as weird as I am, I always tell him my weird matches his weird, it makes us a perfect match, we were made for each other destined to be together almost as if it was written in the stars, a destiny fulfilled with a happy future in the ahead of us. Happy and together forever and always, I still find it hard to believe that there is someone out there who not only gets me, who understands me, my way of thinking, and the way I view the world but most importantly who LOVE'S ME for ME! I consider myself spiritual and not religious although I was raised catholic and attended a convent where a lot of who I am today was made. The making of ME! The sisters of mercy and catholicism had the opposite of the intended effect on me I am not deeply rooted in the catholic faith, even though I had many lovable and amazing teachers and friends who made my school days worthwhile. Religion does not make sense to me and I consider much of it to be untrue, designed and shaped to manipulate and to rule the masses or one could say those who prefer not to think for themselves who would rather be sheep and led to the slaughterhouse willingly. My philosophy is this: as long as I love myself and my neighbor I believe I'm living the right way and try to instill those principles and values in my two sons. I believe that knowing and giving Love encompasses all the values needed to live a healthy life, Love naturally breeds, respect, forgiveness, and mindfulness. Love means living from the heart when one lives from the heart it naturally voids the ego, the ego destroys the manically malevolent whereas the heart creates and builds, Love is a tool with which one can build a life rich in emotional health, enlightenment, and mental stability. Love is my church, love is my essence and if ever I am in doubt I read up on the writings left to us by all the great masters, Jesus, Muhammed, Buddha the Dalai lama and so many more masters, some of whom are more modern and still living and basically all their writings convey the message of Love. So this me and there is more to me than what is written here, but what is written here is more than enough to get to know me better.
I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenges and constantly set goal for myself, so I have something to strive towards. Not only that, but I’m always looking for ways and opportunities to better myself and achieve greatness. I’m highly organized, always take notes and use a series of tools to help myself stay on top of deadlines. Furthermore, I keep a clean workspace and filing systems, so I’d always be able to find what I need. Also, I find this increases efficiency and helps me stay on task. In addition, I love meeting new people and learning about their stories, it always gives me new perspectives. I can almost always find common ground with strangers, and I like making them feel at home in my presence. I find this skill is especially helpful when dealing with new clients or even strangers when meeting for the first time. I am result-oriented, constantly checking in with the results to determine how close or far I am, and what it will take to make it happen. Pressure inspires and acts as a great motivator. I pride myself on making sure people have the right information because it drives better results, and I feel a sense of responsibility to keep everyone on the same page when it comes to work related matters. I would describe my personality as a little of everything. Likewise, I am creative, adventurous, driven, curious, energetic, enthusiastic, observant, positive and self-aware. This is what makes me easy to work with and makes the people who surround me happy to be in my presence. When it comes to my work I am attentive, helpful, patient, respectful, supportive and very flexible. This is what I believe makes me so easy to adapt to any situation thrown my way. Life is full of ups and downs. I know this is a cliché, but this phrase summarizes my whole existence. Sometimes my life is fun, happy and almost enviable and at times my life is sad boring and uninspiring. I have never tried to be perfect, but one thing is true — I AM WHO I AM.
I grew up in a small farm community in the Eastern Cape. The world I knew then was only what was surrounding me; the farm, farm lands, livestock, bushes and forest and two or three other farm dweller families. That was my reality, no big cities or big townships. I never knew anything about big rivers, oceans, lots of animals, no idea of big mountains etc. When I grew up my parents moved to the city, things changed, it was a total new world. My world got so complex and vast. It was when I started visiting beaches, zoo, animal sanctuaries, visit nature reserves and botanical gardens and travelling by boats, ships and fly in aeroplanes. I am now an avid traveller, I also go for walks in the natural environments, listen to birds singing and so on. The world has so much to offer for those who grab these opportunities. As a family man I often visit with my family to city parks, nature reserves, and lots of community projects that take care of animals and the environment. I am both an environmental and social activist, and I have spent most of my life either being involved directly in the protection of fauna and flora or training those who are involved in the same. When I travel or visit other countries I visit mostly destinations that would offer natural and aesthetic beauty to tourists. I also have a huge interest in climate change as it is, among others, influenced by human behaviour, more especially air pollution. I am also interested in religion, more especially African Traditional religion. The reason for my interest in this branch of religion is because it is mostly nature based. In other words it is religion that does not separate between humans and nature. For the adherents of this religion life is one and God manifests himself through nature and therefore taking care of nature is a religious duty. As an environmental and social activist I am involved either through making financial contribution or contributing my time in community projects of different kinds. These projects would include contributing shoes to primary school learners who have no shoes, contributing money to soup kitchens for crèches and unemployed job seekers and many other projects. I am hoping to sustain these initiatives to a level where they can help more people.
“The key to unlocking complexity, is simplicity itself” This is the lesson that I have learned time and time again, not just in business, but life as well. Hence my perspective, in that we can complicate life or take a pragmatic approach. I grew up in a single parent household, with my father and younger sister, uncommon in my community whereby most single parent would be one’s mother, but this has shaped my thinking…not everything is what it seems. Firmly believe that personal and moral growth is a direct consequence of uplifting communities and protecting the vulnerable. Recently, I was the MD of a rural firefighting programme and still remains one of my passions in terms of assisting underserviced communities. I’ve worked in television, mainly satellite broadcasting, the South African revenue service, back into broadcasting, then firefighting and now green economy initiatives including a component of green building construction and manufacturing. Personally, an avid motorcycle enthusiast as well as a proponent of animal welfare. As you will notice from my pictures, motorcycles and pets. Right now, we have 10 pets, 4 dogs and 6 cats. All are adopted and some rescued, save for the German Shepherd.
Born on outskirts of Belgrade – Serbia in family of 4. Immigrated to South Africa in 1991 “running away” from civil war. Even though that I came to South Africa without papers, money, job or being able to speak English, I made this beautiful country my home. My career took me from being a waiter in the restaurant (my first job here) to Restaurant Manager, Sales Manager in Timeshare Company to MD and CEO of ZA Galvanizing. At the end of the August this year I left my last position of Regional Sales Manager of EXIM International. When it comes to business, I am dedicated, punctual, loyal and organized with the skill set that made me achieve any task in front of me with the high rate of success. Privately, I am nature and animal lover, a bit of the environmentalist and lifelong naturist. I am one of the funders and first Chairman of Western Cape Naturist Association – WCNA and South African National Naturist Association – SANNA. Passionate follower and supporter of South African Rugby and F1 Grand Prix.
I am a positive, happy person who loves all aspects of my life. I love the beach, animals and children. I am a people’s person. I grew up in the Kruger Park and that is where my love for animals and people comes from. Love working with people from all over the world. I have three beautiful children and an amazing mom whom I adore. I received the most precious gift of all very recently when I was blessed by becoming a grandmother. Like most young people and since I can remember, I had a dream… I just wanted to be a teacher when I grow up. Like a lot of young people, I did not have the means to pursue my dream. At the age of sixteen, I started working in the Kruger Park tourist shop as a cashier during school holidays. Naturally, when I matriculated and because I could not attend a college or university to study what my heart desired, I started working for SANParks. I worked in different departments from the tourist shop to finally being promoted to year in advance bookings at SANParks head office. I will always “want to be a teacher in my heart but never will I be disappointed for the foundation I had. Working for SANParks gave me the opportunity, confidence and knowledge to work with tourists from all over the world. They had a huge hand in the way I see people and the quality of work I offer. I will always be thankful. I am a loyal, loving, understanding, empathetic and kind individual. I learned a lot about people over the years. People tend to confide in me and I am a very good listener. I can solve problems easily because people listen to me and usually follow my advice. It makes it a lot easier to solve problems in the work place concerning personnel and clients too. I have a sixth sense about people and it usually turns out to be spot on. The way in which I treat people, they will follow my orders without question. I learned a lot during my years working for different companies and working in different departments and environments. I know how to handle myself and every situation and challenge I am faced with. I am hard working and not afraid to learn new things. I am a quick learner and I always follow through on everything I do. Even if it is a new challenge I have to tackle and always give a hundred and one percent doing everything that has to be done. I am not afraid to walk the extra mile and to do everything to the best of my ability. I gained a lot of professional work experience. This includes... working as a reservations officer, receptionist, personal assistant, book keeper, financial administrator, school tutor and even running my own business for several years. I loved all the careers I pursued but my favorite by far was the work I have done with clients. It would be a honor and privilege to invest the experience I have gained and the skills I have mastered into your company and to share it with the world.
I am a 26-year-old woman, born and raised in Johannesburg where I have lived my entire life. One of my biggest aspirations is to travel across South Africa and eventually the world. Although I was bred a city girl, my heart lies at sea. Another one of my aspirations is to own a home along the South African coast, within walking distance to the beach. I have been known as a bookworm since childhood. I always preferred to have my nose in a book rather than watching cartoons, hence my passions are reading, writing, and editing. Taking my love for books into account, I decided to study English literature, linguistics, and journalism. I have a great love for animals, and I currently have four dogs and a cat. I also love being out in nature. I am always keen to go hiking, take a trip to the beach, or take the dogs for a walk in the park. Another one of my interests is fashion. I have my own sewing machine and often create clothing for myself. I believe we are all responsible for our actions, and we decide where we want to go in life. I think if you want to do something, and you believe you can do it, you can. All you have to do is put in the effort. Nothing comes easy, but if you put the work in you will achieve your goals and be anything you want to be. This is something I live by. I also think that building relationships and being able to work with others is extremely important. Succeeding in your endeavors often depends on how you work with and treat people, not just on what you can accomplish on your own. I have only started my journey, but I am looking forward to experiencing new things, building good relationships, and making the most out of every situation or opportunity.
I’m a proactive recent college graduate (International certificate in Cyber Defence) from the Institute of Advanced Cyber Defence in Sandton, South Africa. During the course of my academic career, I also managed to accrue nearly 10 years of work experience. I had the privilege of working for Absa Bank Limited as a Forex Teller and an International Banking Consultant, where I learned valuable professional skills in foreign exchange, global banking, and branch operations. While working at Absa bank, I was exposed to a culture that had a high demand of customer or client services. I learnt to be a much organised individual and now able to deal with projects at hand and also to work under enormous pressure. I was awarded Teller of the year for two consecutive years and had been an ”A” performer influencing my colleagues to do the same. The role of being second in charge at the Teller department empowered me to lead, supervise and initiate action. I empowered myself by studying and finishing a Certificate in Banking, after which I registered and obtained a Higher Diploma in Banking specialising in Treasury and International Banking. My passion for International Banking and Financial markets led me to register and obtain a certificate for Regulation and Ethics of the SA Financial Markets with the South African Institute of Financial Markets. In 2015 I wrote an article about ” My purpose and Journey” within Barclays Africa and won that competition for a trip to Robben Island to meet the then Barclays Africa CEO Maria Ramos and the late political icon Amhed Kathrada. My broad range of interests brings me into contact with the diversity of people and that talent South Africa and the world offers. I want to promote this talent and creative output especially of local people. I am a hard worker, good organizer, very good with numbers, energetic and responsible individual. I started my schooling with a desire and passion to make an impact to every situation encountered. Education has taught me that world of work does not need greater minds, but the determination and desire to what one does. In both my academic and professional life, I have been praised as a hard-working individual by my lectures and peers. Whether working on academic, extracurricular, or professional projects, I apply proven teamwork, best customer service and critical thinking skills. I’m a very spiritual person who is passionate about the well being of others. My love for God led me to dedicate each morning into writing and sharing daily prophetic words and worship songs to my entire network including friends in Europe, and also guiding some on their spiritual journeys.
I would consider myself a mix of both introverted and extroverted. I love being around and working with people but I also enjoy my own company. I’m also very family orientated. Family is everything to me! My passions are a mix between working with/building fruitful relationships with people whether it be in the workplace or day to day life, I love helping people and bringing out the best of those around me. Outside of that I also love doing anything to do with being outdoors. I’m always up for an adventure such as hiking, camping or even just a walk along the beach. I’m also passionate about and absolutely love animals. I’ve done horse-riding practically my entire life and it’s so therapeutic for me, to just get out into the country and get my mind off everything going on. I was born in Johannesburg, but lived the majority of my life in the beautiful mother city known as Cape Town. I’ve never got the chance to travel outside of South Africa, however it is something I have always wanted to do and I know I will accomplish in the future. In the meantime, there’s actually so many parts of my own country that I haven’t even experienced yet, so I’d love to start there. My work life has involved various industries, starting off with retail and moving on to the sales environment both internal and external. I could say I had a certain plan for my life and career, but that all changed when I unexpectedly fell pregnant with my son. I then went from being an independent, carefree person to spending the last few months staying at home with my child. Which has honestly been life changing and I wouldn’t change a thing! However it’s now time to get back into the working world and do everything in my power to give my son the life he deserves and one I wish I had growing up.
Rome wasn't built in a day. I’m of a very friendly nature and love to be with people who aren’t selfish. I am ambitious and will do anything to achieve my aim - "The Universe applauds action not thought" I’m of a very adventurous nature and love to find good in everything I see. There are many things that make us depressed or upset, but that doesn’t mean that we stop living. You dust yourself off, honor the difficult times for the lesson it taught you, and walk away stronger and wiser. Independence and confidence were key in my life from a young age with venturing to the UK straight after school, and eventually ending up in Cape Town as my dream destination to live a happy balanced life where beautiful sunsets are part of your everyday life, and reminds you that dreams do come true. My professional life started as a labourer painting parks in the dire UK winter weather to Insurance consultant for a huge corporate company. Getting to know me over time it became clear that I adapt quickly and take pride in everything I do as I strive to leave everything and everyone better than you found them. Covid19 and the drastic changes that came with it has been the most challenging and rewarding time of my life. With a system that failed us all in so many ways, living a financially stable life is nearly impossible but forced me to get grounded with nature and realize that the best things in life are truly free. My senses for nature, animals, and my overall humility enhanced drastically. We are all just reminded once again that nothing ever goes as planned and that losing everything including your mind might be necessary to make you realize what a strong, resilient, and galactic species we truly are. Realizing this, I am now more than ever ready to spread love and kindness whilst challenging myself with new adventures that push me out of my comfort zone. There is no other time than the present that truly matters. And in this moment I am excited to change my reality and the lives of those around me.
I am a 28-year-old woman who is passionate about youth work in communities across South Africa. I have volunteered my time with NGO’s specifically tailored for the youth in Cape Town, Port Shepstone and East London. I believe that the youth are capable of great things in our country and the entire world, I take great pride in mentoring young girls to believe the above-mentioned statement and to push themselves to get to their goals. The concept of hard work is simply lost in the generation of instant gratification and I believe that every person needs to learn this, starting from a young age. I have dedicated my time to schools as a sports coach, tutor and during Holiday Clubs that teach children ages 12-18 about life skills and the potential that they have. I am family oriented and believe in working hard in all areas of my life. I think of myself as an intelligent and super energetic being, I love all things that make me laugh and I am a super fun person. I am a wife and mom who is devoted and loves her family very much. I am in my final year of a Bachelor of Theology and look forward to working towards a Master’s specialising in Pastoral Care/Social work. My skills range from retail, online teaching and proofreading and editing, and I put my all in what I do. I do not believe in taking short cuts and giving up when the going gets tough, trying and trying again is an attitude that I have taken a liking to and I pour my all in every project that I am involved in. I am a firm believer in serving others and I do that with no motives, other than to be a memory in their lives that brought hope and a new determination. That is who I am and what I stand for, to be a part of something that makes others lives better and gives them the ability to believe in themselves.
I was born in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, but raised in Jozini, Kwa-Zulu Natal and a Diver at heart. School Holidays was spent on the beach and in the ocean at Sodwana Bay. My Passion for acting started at a young age when I was approached by my arts teacher to play the lead as “Joseph” in that year’s school play, “Joseph and his technicolor dream coat”. In 2006, I moved to Saldanha bay Naval Base to conduct my basic training and upon completion, reported to Simon’s Town Naval Base Diving Centre. I worked at the Naval Diving Centre until mid- 2007, but reported for duty aboard SAS Spioenkop (Naval Warship) later that year and for the rest of my stay in the SA Navy. I resigned from the SA Navy at the end of 2009 to further pursue my childhood passion for Acting, after it had been re-ignited back in 2007, when a Production Company came to shoot the one part series, “Diver’s Down”, at the Naval Diving Base where I was stationed. Since then, I performed numerous small roles in Films and TV Shows with goals and aspirations to become a successful actor in the industry. Years later and struggling in the industry I started a Photography business in 2017 shooting headshots for actors in the industry and also specializing in Real Estate Photography. I also worked in the hospitality industry during this time working my way up to head of staff at a fine dining Italian Restaurant in the Bellville area of Cape Town. December 2018 I made the very hard decision to hang up my Actor’s hat and retire from the industry as I needed to make a change. So with a fire in my belly and a pursuit of a new career I embarked on an old passion within the boating world. I completed my Yacht Master Coastal and SAS Day Skipper certificate followed by a plane ticket to Nice, France. I spent a month walking countless amount of steps that would make “Discovery Vitality” proud on the docks of the various harbors handing out my cv in an attempt to book work as crew on board. With a few days worth of day work under the belt and finally booking an interview for a possible crew position, my visa expired and I needed to come home. Luckily I was being strongly considered for a position aboard but I needed to wait for the boat to come out of the drydock. With this I flew back to SA with a hopeful heart knowing that I would soon return to France. As things go, the opportunity was cancelled (Owner preferred a merger of the two available roles and he preferred a female). What to do now? Unemployed and with depleted finances of not being able to return I started looking for work and was unemployed until Sept the same year when I finally got an opportunity to begin work as a Junior Site Supervisor for a Construction Business (not ideal, but hey challenge accepted and gotta pay dem bills son!). I have since then worked for the same company, building weigh bridges, expanding warehouses, pouring concrete floors and laying paving. I have learned so much and have grown allot since then. Recently I approached and dusted off my photography equipment again and am in the process of starting this up as well. Being in the construction industry has sparked allot of ideas and have given me a new passion for real estate, especially as an Investor. People tend to describe me as ambitious, hardworking, punctual and goal-oriented. I have high attention to detail and work really well in both a team environment and on my own. I am pro-active, a problem solver and creative at heart. I won’t stop until the project or task is completed. More personally I enjoy the outdoors, love being fit and healthy and spending my off time with my most valuable assets; family and friends. Short term goals: – To learn and grow the new skills required to perform given tasks efficiently and with excellence. -To prove myself a valuable asset, as a hardworking, dependable and trustworthy individual to my fellow colleagues, managers and seniors. Long term goals: -To become one of the best in my department and be seen as the go to guy for a specific job or task. -To become manager and coach to younger generations looking to enter my industry. -To eventually run a team of managers, teaching them to effectively run their teams with excellence. I believe in serving others with excellence. The effort you put in will reap the results you desire. I also believe that being truthful, respectful and trustworthy are very important keys to success and I strive to live by these principles daily.
Born and bred in beautiful Cape Town, mom to a long-awaited, witty, (inherited from me of course!), amazing, lively little 5-year-old girl, 2 dogs and 2 cats, 'my rescue children'. Married to Tomy, a senior digital content producer hailing from Tennenbronn, Germany. He is as introvert as I am extrovert – the scale balances beautifully. In my spare time (which is limited!) I sketch, paint, and try my hand at baking, while completing a mini-thesis in psychology. University after high school was not an option. I am also a seasoned HR professional, with a passion for people and process, building and maintaining great relationships form the foundation of both who I am, and what I do. And it’s a solid foundation. Hailing from the Pharmaceutical industry, I entered the world of investments about 14 years ago, where after joining as Office Manager, I moved into HR and have been in the HR sphere since. My journey has taken me on many a bumpy road, however, being a glass-half-full type, seasoned by an interesting childhood, and a solid determination to rise above, I march smilingly on. I have a passion for order, automation and software which could aid in optimization, easing transitions and processes. I am resilient with great sense of humour, always welcoming a challenge. I have a firm belief that building and nurturing relationships are paramount to success. I love meeting people and building relationships come naturally to me. I believe it’s the level of connection that counts. I am passionate about my work, I love what I do, and I do it well. I believe that doing what you love is a privilege. Yet, I still long for something more philanthropic in life. To give back, be it ever so small. Being an eternal optimist and peppered with life’s-experiences, I have been shaped into the person I am today. Pragmatic, passionate, and humble. An enormous amount of grit coupled a with good dose of grace! I am not done growing yet, not by a long shot, there are too many interesting, inspiring people to meet along the way, and there is always something to learn and something to contribute in life. It’s the journey that counts and I enjoy every step.
"All things are possible" I love the outdoors, travelling, animals and people. I was an ardent hiker, and this allowed me to visit some of the most amazing hiking trails in South Africa. What inspires me most is the ability to positively impact the lives of others through the plethora of skills I have acquired over the many years of experience. I have the ability to add value wherever I am placed. I am energised by strategy, new challenges, and the search for the most efficient and impactful solutions. My career began in education. As an educator I enjoyed the children. I know this will always be part of who I am as I will always be passionate about teaching and will continue sharing knowledge, mentoring, and coaching, etc. I ventured into the corporate environment as I excelled with my financial skills and thought that my career would entail the chartered accountant route. I did the required academics, got the job and my focus was numbers and more numbers. Again, I was challenged because my love for people was not satisfied. I once again did a complete change in my career by studying, job shadowing and taking on projects in the learning and development and human resource departments. One of my memorable periods was asking the CFO of the organisation to give me the opportunity to split my job in two areas to show my capabilities and therefore be considered for a position that was eventually created for me. This was exciting and I thrived in this environment. I felt like I was adding value as the position focused on the growth and development of the youth, once again. I knew that I could accomplish more and add more value through venturing out on my own. I started my own business which offers the services of learning and development, strategy, human resources and finance. This has been an exciting journey with many challenges.
I board people’s family pets for prolonged stays preferably to ease the stress of worrying about their pets in cages. I have been doing the boarding for almost a year now and have a repeat doggo whom I love very much and his month stay is always a blessing. I fostered puppies and cats for shelters and they’ve all been adopted, I rescued a Staffordshire terrier from an outreach with a friend and healed him from the horrible mange he had and he got adopted by someone who flew from JHB and drove back up and now he lives the king life he deserves.
I have been involved in the music industry for the better part of my life. As a performer and creator, I have had the opportunity to entertain many people over the years. I have a great passion for music and the arts in general. As an avid reader, I take great pleasure in immersing myself in the prose of those who are highly skilled in the literary arts. This stood me in great stead when I embarked on a course in Journalism a million years ago. Although I never completed the course, certain skills have stuck with me to this day. My journalistic endeavour was eclipsed by my musical passion. A passion that has given me much joy and also lead to much heartache. Nonetheless, being a staunch collector of music, it wasn’t long before I utilised this collection, and branched out into spinning records on dance floors around the country. Having grown up in Cape Town, South Africa, in the ‘80s, I was embroiled in the struggle for freedom. Battling the apartheid regime. This struggle, which was so much a part of everyday life, gave me a sense of something bigger than myself. A sense of community and belonging to something that was more important than my own personal well-being. Generally speaking, I would like to believe that I am an artist at heart. When I say that I don't mean that I like to draw or paint or any of the other physical manifestations of art. What I mean is that I approach life as art. If that makes any sense. I am the proverbial Jack of all trades. Master of a few. I think my biggest asset is that I am always willing to learn. That is something that I intend to keep doing until the last breath escapes my body.
I am Alonzo Van Aarde, born on 9th July 2002. I was raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I am the oldest son out of 6 children, Recently (last year 2020) I have matriculated in my home town, Mitchell’s plain. I never quite had a fixed job but I have had my fair share of holiday jobs in a shoe store it was called first stop shoes in a shopping complex close to home. In my free time I would work private jobs with my father and doing shop fitting and house renovations all over Cape Town. I loved helping my father out. It was also a way for me to have extra pocket money. I also worked at a Taylor blinds company, whereby the production of blinds called Taylor blinds in Montague gardens. I took part in various programs whilst at school, namely, in leadership development skills with a NPO called M.O.V.E and another called J.A.M, where I was taught to run my own business. This was done during my schooling, I have obtained certificates for these courses. These two courses was done over a period of 12 months, I was also an RCL members as well as a Prefect at my school. I am also part of a group called M.O.C (mission of Christ), where I furthered my leadership skills but in a more spiritual sense in doing so we take part in outreach programs and preach the gospel. I speak fluently English and Afrikaans. I am currently studying Japanese, because I am intrigued by it. I am computer literate, Microsoft enabled as well as Linux. I am also a musician. In my spare time, I teach people to play an instrument and also to read music. I also write my own music as well as produce music. I use this skill to help many young and upcoming artists I work with an Organization called My Child Is Your Child, Creating a platform where young people can showcase their talents and make something out of themselves. I live in a rough community where children are killing children and I’ve joined this organization to make a change in a community through various forms of art. My hobbies are, playing different sporting activities, going to the gym, writing music and drawing portraits.
Live and love as if there is no tomorrow! Hi, my name is Emmerentia. I was born in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa, in the ‘60’s, which means that I'm an original, retro hippie chick at heart with the good, old-fashioned values to back it up. The highs and lows I’ve dealt with in life have taught me a valuable lesson…time is not guaranteed and is therefore not to be lost. I am enjoying my journey, still learning new life lessons and growing to become the person I am meant to be. I must pay tribute to the University of Experience and the School of Hard Knocks for the valuable contributions you have made to my life path thus far. Stronger. Wiser. Blessed. My passion is to help others to reach their full potential. It is even more difficult to do that in one’s own life (it’s so easy giving advice to others, isn’t it?) but making a direct contribution or figuratively planting a seed and watching it take root in someone else’s life is deeply rewarding. We are on this planet to live good lives and to make a positive difference to our direct environment, wherever our feet may fall. Aim for the stars; never forget your roots. Be yourself, stay humble, be kind, be grateful, make love an action…not a word. My mission is to help people from all walks of life, gain financial independence, while caring for the world around us. Learn how to earn. Make sure you have a meal, an income, clothes, a home and good health. There is no planet B. I’m a big fan of renewable resources, organic gardens and farming and hugging a tree. Helping our paw-legged friends in shelters, finding furever homes much faster. Same for birds, horses, donkeys, circus prisoners and liberating zoos. I am an excellent chef in my kitchen 😊 and I love baking (to put it mildly). My cakes and tarts are wickedly good and not being gluten intolerant is still my highlight of the previous decade! My downtime is spent walking, jogging, going to the beach, horse riding and playing golf. With over 38 years’ combined experience, accumulated by time spent in the corporate world and having 3 businesses over the years, I have a wealth of experience to share and utilize. Words, in a personal bio, aren't plentiful. Not to me, at least. I feel that the chances of someone reading about what your opinion is of yourself and BELIEVING it is remote. The tough part is that you don't know me, nor I you, yet I'm trying to “convince” you that what I say is who I am as a person and that what I say is what it is. The eyes are windows to the soul…that isn't exactly happening here, and that sense cannot always be replaced through words alone. So, the moral of the story is that what I list below as my key character traits, strengths, weaknesses, achievements, experience, etc. is in reality simply just that. Traits: Dedicated, honest, loyal, trustworthy, tenacious, dependable, creative, methodical, sense of integrity, ethical, tough but fair, empathetic, lighthearted and friendly. Strengths: Comfortable in a team environment or working independently, management, skills utilization, delegation, human relations, conflict resolution, analysis, strategizing, implementation, problem solving, business administration. Weaknesses: Impatience, self-critique, injustice and rudeness stirs my temper, being micro-managed, cheesecake. Experience: Sales, sales management, customer relationship management, business administration, directorship and general management of 3 x businesses previously owned/co-owned. Summary: A self-starter who gets what's required done, pronto. I am self-motivated, enjoy new challenges and try my best to excel at what's before me. I love working with people, as this is simply my passion.
Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, I am a 22 year old who could be described as ambitious, hardworking, and a perfectionist. I enjoy being challenged with new tasks, as I believe discomfort allows one to grow and learn. I enjoy teamwork, but I am also capable of working on my own. I believe that communication is an important aspect of any relationship, especially professional ones, as it doesn’t leave any room for errors or misunderstandings. Therefore, I pride myself on being a skilled communicator. I am organised, goal-driven, and I find it very hard to set a task down once I have started. I may not have the most extroverted personality, but I do enjoy socialising with others in any setting. I recently graduated with a BA in English and Communication Science. While completing my degree, I worked as an editorial intern at Highbury Media, where I gained first hand experience in editing, publishing, and social media management. I was also able to sharpen my writing skills, which came in handy as I went on to work as a freelance writer for ClubX Magazine for over a year. Even though I do not have years of experience behind me, I am, however, eager to learn. And a fresh mind is always a benefit. When it comes to my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I am also currently learning Italian and intend on tackling many other foreign languages.
Born and raised in South-Africa by a single mother in humble surroundings. Doing Taekwondo for years and attained my International black belt with the following principles, this was apart of my childhood that guided me into my adult life: Showing courtesy to others no matter what level of society labelled them; training continuously whether I was up for it or not; showing integrity, even when no one was watching; perseverance when I wanted to give up; self control when it was difficult to compose myself and learning from my couch to have a indomitable Spirit. Finishing school it was expected of me to follow in the "Afrikaaner Man's" footsteps to have a job where you work many long hours a day, week in and week out, get your salary, sleep and repeat. My passion for music gave me the confidence to follow my heart and to head towards Cape Town for a short holiday, but I ended up staying here and studied for Audio Engineering, whilst completing my studies and gaining experience in the industry. COVID19 affected the industry drastically and I had decided to use my spare time productively by enrolling in courses such as Social Media marketing and Programming. I also started a small business where I rent out my sound equipment and host small gatherings and events. Helping friends with their business promotions and seeing how people enjoyed the events I have hosted, it made me realize that I have a passion to better others and their circumstances. Following my dreams against all odds lead me to where I am today and to appreciate every single moment by not wondering about the past or worrying about the future. Focusing on the task at hand and having it complete well within the deadline is what I strive to achieve and I love learning and gaining knowledge along the way to further myself in everything and anything I get the opportunity for. I am ready for new challenges and know that having a healthy work balance will help me to reach my full potential.
Greetings to one and all. I am a child of the universe and I want to share that every day is a beautiful day. True, our emotions fluctuate but at some point during each day we will recognise that the day is a gift we have received and if we be true to ourselves we will smile and this will create feel good energy. We should practice this feel good energy and build on it so that each day it comes easier and earlier in the day, like a muscle it will grow. Become more evident and gather momentum and we will BE better for it. I believe in kindness and forgiveness towards others and myself. In a couple of months I will begin the first year of my seventh decade on planet Earth. I feel privileged to have lived long enough to grow. Twenty years ago I was facing a life threatening illness and not doing too well, I am a miracle. I believe we are all miracles. Some would differ. It can be a topic for discussion. I have extensive administrative experience - getting things organised, getting things done. With a stable track record, I am able to diversify within different industries. As part of a team I have a strong focus to resolve challenges and enjoy leaving any tasks I am busy with in a user friendly state (do unto others). I pride myself on my attention to detail & due diligence, going the extra mile in terms of improved efficiency and cost effectiveness. With strong English (both written and verbal) I am confident to communicate at all levels of an organisation, company or institution, with a strong emphasis on service delivery. My good communication skills help towards problem solving & interpersonal relationships. I enjoy taking on responsibility, it adds to my sense of well-being & purpose. I did a one year secretarial course in 1980 and my working life began from there. Living and learning life then became what I did, marriage, babies, etc. I guess I was lazy to further my qualifications, in hindsight I think I would have made a damn good surgeon LOL. Seriously, I have good eye, hand coordination, a good touch, and, consciously, I have become better at threading the needle. I believe strongly in being true to myself and honesty means much to me, honesty within and with others. And now, I am ready to start that next chapter in my career. I am blessed. I have over the years done various short courses including a deep tissue massage course so I am a certified masseuse however I only massage family and friends as I am no longer physically (strength and stamina) up to doing a job I am comfortable to charge for. Thought that was worth mentioning as it brings me pleasure to help others breathe and take time out. I have always worked in administrative support positions from Girl Friday to Executive PA and everything in between and in many different industries. My last couple of jobs have been from home (virtual) and in a new field namely customer service. This shift was challenging and I am proud to say I managed it pretty well. Working from home is what is necessary at this time given my current living circumstances. This change and the challenge that came with it reminded me that I have strong determination which is a very good thing. I am concerned for my granddaughter’s generation and what life will be like for them as adults, especially the environment they will find themselves in physically, mentally, emotionally. And, I would love to see the curricula in our educational systems adapting to educating our children to be more self-aware, mindful, engaging their senses, like an involuntary muscle, in the present moment and, to be able to guide their minds when it comes to EQ. I am an advocate for sports at a young age as this definitely develops our grit and stick-ability which comes in handy as we journey down the road with our name on it. I was a junior champion in both swimming and tennis, representing Zambia in both. Easy does it.

I am outgoing, dedicated and love new challenges! I believe that a person should work on developing their skills and learning new things all the time. I love sports gaming and fishing during my “downtime”. I believe treating people with integrity and respect will always yield great relationships. I love spending as much time as I can with my family and loved ones. I believe working together as a whole we can achieve great things. I am very optimistic and very open minded when dealing with day-to-day life. I love my animals as they truly bring the best out of me if I have had a long challenging day.

I have a positive outlook on life and I wish to share that positivity with you someday! Showing compassion for others in this industry and any industry I believe will always get positive results. I am, because we are. Bound together in ways that are invisible, humanity is all about being one. Caring unconditionally, and sharing with everyone around us. Combining a salient philosophy of caring and sharing, with the strength of unity and community.

I am a fun loving guy! I am a lover of spirituality, people, animals, arts, music, philosophy, psychology, books and technology! My hometown is in Elsies River, a small community in Cape Town, where I am currently residing as well. In primary school, I was bullied for reasons which at that time I could make sense of but do now. My need to fit in helped me discover my love for chess and classical music. I was ''religiously'' brought up in the Christian tradition until it stopped serving me around 2012 completely. I was completely lost especially after my mom's passing in 2011 from which I asked the question to myself that there must be more to life than earthly wealth because I simply discovered that it doesn't bring the happiness that my parents and society told me. I knew that there must be more to life. My deep need to help my family after my mom's passing led my to cut my investment banking career in Johannesburg as a quant very short. I follow the Buddhist way life as best as I can because it help me understand the nature of my own suffering and of others. I simply hate to see people suffer. I try to help people in which ever way I can. I finished a Bsc in Mathematics and Statistics, honours in Computational Finance and an incomplete MSc. I worked as a Senior Fund Accountant mostly. I am a part-time musician and love dancing. I love people but I am more introverted. I most prefer my own company. I am too sensitive lol. I love teaching as well! I was a part-time lecturer in Statistics but I tutored maths from my second year. This also helped myself and parents. My hard work helped me to get get scholarhips to cover the rest of my studies. I worked as a barman. I am a part-time musician. Played in the Cape Town Youth Philharmonic and my music center's symphony orchestras. I love and thank all my teachers! Everyone is generally my teacher. A little more about my childhood. It was ok with the usual joyful moments and traumas. I did what my parents expected and was occasionally rewarded. I attended school in my community until my need for better education and passion for music landed me a scholarship to go to any school of my choice. This all happened in the middle of my high school career. The switch opened my eyes. Better education where suddenly from the one of the top students at my old high school to the weakest. But I was welcomed nevertheless by all! As a member of the LGBTI community, it created a loving safe space to come out to.
I am passionate about my work. Because I love what I do, I have a steady source of motivation that drives me to do my best. In my last job, this passion led me to challenge myself daily and learn new skills that helped me to do better work. I am ambitious and driven. I thrive on challenges and constantly set goals for myself, so I have something to strive toward. I’m not comfortable with settling, and I’m always looking for an opportunity to do better and achieve greatness. I am an excellent communicator. I pride myself on making sure people have the right information because it drives better results. Most business issues stem from poor communication, so I feel a responsibility to keep everyone on the same page. I am results-oriented, constantly checking in with the goal to determine how close or how far away we are and what it will take to make it happen. I find this pressure inspiring and a great motivator for the rest of the team. I am highly organized. I always take notes, and I use a series of tools to help myself stay on top of deadlines. I like to keep a clean workspace and create a logical filing method so I’m always able to find what I need. I find this increases efficiency and helps the rest of the team stay on track, too. I’m a people-person. I love meeting new people and learning about their lives and their backgrounds. I can almost always find common ground with strangers, and I like making people feel comfortable in my presence.
At PetMag our Mission is to provide you with detailed, honest, and most of all, helpful pet product reviews in order to simplify your shopping experience. The product selection process is split into two key components. The first part involves leveraging our expert reviewers’ personal experiences. Whether you’re looking for the best dog and cat products or fish and reptile products, our diverse team of reviewers has the experience necessary to point you in the right direction. Our reviewers are long time pet owners who have seen it all! The second part of our selection process is the data driven component. While our personal feelings towards a product are important, it is essential to factor in user reviews about the product and brand to truly understand what’s best. Our review team analyzes user reviews for every product and brand on our website.

WAGS is funded and run. WAGS is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is contracted by two cities with a predetermined estimated amount money to care for the pets that would be brought in based on previous year’s data. In fact, the contract spans 3 years. It is not lucrative money but limited monies to care for the cities stray, lost and homeless animals. To point out, there are no extra funds to handle hoarder and puppy mill cases (at least in this contract). Additionally, possibly due to our good reputation, WAGS has already exceeded the number of pets brought to us in the contracted estimated number. Possibly, we have more pets on property than anticipated because we do our best to rehabilitate and care for animals under our roof. We sometimes assume we have more homeless and lost pets because of our philosophy of care. Overall, WAGS cares for about 400 pets on property on any given day. WAGS has many programs to help pets get adopted. Notably, We strive to provide great medical care. To emphasize, we use standard protocols for care of the pets and facility. With this in mind, we pride ourselves on keeping WAGS in clear order and renovate when ever we have the funds to improve a room or two. We have vast volunteer opportunities, sponsorship, and donation options. Also, We are always open to suggestions for improvement and welcome the community in daily.

Wings of Rescue is the biggest air transporter of at-risk shelter pets in the world. We are unique in that in a matter of hours we are able to fly large number of dogs and cats on long distance flights to markets in need of adoptable pets. At Wings of Rescue all our pets are examined by licensed veterinarians and issued health certificates prior to their boarding our planes. Our precious cargo is treated with the utmost care, respect and safety and our pets arrive healthier and less stressed than those transported on land transports. Pets transported long distances by land are all too often not taken out of their kennels for potty breaks and arrive stressed and sick. The average length of stay for a pet transported by Wings of Rescue in his/her receiving shelter is 3 1/2 days before they are adopted into wonderful loving homes.

Founded in 1876, the SPCA Serving Erie County is the second-oldest humane society in the USA. As the view and treatment of animals have changed over time, so too have their efforts. However, their commitment to providing care and compassion to all animals in need has never wavered. In the late 1800s, the organization helped horses and other animals working on the Erie Canal. In the early 1900s, as more animals started living in homes as pets, their work played a more prominent role in the lives of dogs and cats. Today, as their community’s impact on the environment grows, they see more wild animals needing assistance to survive. The SPCA Serving Erie County is a place for animals who, in their greatest time of need, have nowhere else to turn. We invite you to learn more about our organization and how you can help put an end to animal cruelty. The SPCA promises to transform the lives of animals in Erie County, NY and beyond –whether neglected, beaten, starved, abandoned, injured, or unwanted. The SPCA Serving Erie County continues to grow and carry out their mission thanks to loyal, dedicated people. People who know the love and affection of a pet. People who care about homeless animals. People who will not tolerate animal abuse and cruelty.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) was founded in 1980 and is dedicated to establishing and defending the rights of all animals. PETA operates under the simple principle that animals are not ours to experiment on, eat, wear, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way. PETA educates policymakers and the public about animal abuse and promotes kind treatment of animals. PETA is an international nonprofit charitable organization based in Norfolk, Virginia, with affiliates worldwide. PETA opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview, and focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. They also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals. PETA works through public education, cruelty investigations, research, animal rescue, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement, and protest campaigns. PETA has always been known for uncompromising, unwavering views on animal rights. They aren’t afraid to make the difficult comparisons, say the unpopular thing, or point out the uncomfortable truth, if it means that animals will benefit. The very heart of all of PETA’s actions is the idea that it is the right of all beings –human and nonhuman alike– to be free from harm. Our world is plagued with many serious problems, all of which deserve our attention. Cruelty to animals is one of them. PETA’s “Uncompromising Stands on Animal Rights” is an overview of what sets PETA apart. Their positions may be controversial, but they are always true to their driving mission: to stop animal abuse worldwide. We have the power to spare animals excruciating pain by making better choices about the food we eat, the things we buy, and the activities we support.

A finales del 2015 nos unimos cuatro amantes de los animales y las nuevas tecnologías, para encontrar la forma de fusionar estas dos pasiones. Nuestra finalidad era sencilla, crear productos innovadores que ayudaran a las mascotas y sus humanos. Tras darnos cuenta del potencial que los productos wearables podían tener en el sector mascota, comenzamos a realizar un estudio de mercado para saber qué cosas les preocupaban a otros propietarios de perro y con qué problemas se habían encontrado. Los resultados de este estudio marcaron nuestra línea de desarrollo. Gracias a todos los propietarios de perro que participaron en él, aprendimos mucho, sobre todo a escuchar. A mediados de 2016 nació Dinbeat. Como amantes de los animales hemos compartido nuestras vidas con todo tipo de mascotas. Conocemos y entendemos los problemas a los que muchos propietarios se enfrentan, algunos de los cuales tienen aún difícil solución. Es aquí donde centramos nuestros esfuerzos. En estos momentos estamos trabajando en el desarrollo de un wearable para perros que servirá para monitorizarlos a nivel de salud, actividad y ladrido. At the end of 2015, four lovers of animals and new technologies came together to find a way to merge these two passions. Our goal was simple, to create innovative products that would help pets and their humans. After realizing the potential that wearable products could have in the pet sector, we began to carry out a market study to find out what things other dog owners were concerned about and what problems they had encountered. The results of this study marked our line of development. Thanks to all the dog owners who participated in it, we learned a lot, especially to listen. In mid-2016 Dinbeat was born. As animal lovers we have shared our lives with all kinds of pets. We know and understand the problems that many homeowners face, some of which are still difficult to solve. This is where we focus our efforts. We are currently working on the development of a wearable for dogs that will be used to monitor their health, activity and barking.

It all started with a childhood cat named after the iconic cat-with-attitude from Homeward Bound. Sassie, and the ragtag bunch that followed, taught siblings Brett and Nikki some of life's most important lessons. How to stay curious and playful. Unconditional love and responsibility. And that a good snuggle can fix anything. These days, their lives are brightened by their cats Molly, Kiki and Columbus. But just a few years ago, they learned how badly their health was being neglected by mainstream cat food. So they decided to shake up the industry and put cats and their people first. Nutritious meals for all cats. No small feat. They wanted to team up with someone exceptional. Someone who understood exactly what they were striving for. So they got on a flight to Gainesville, Florida. Dr. Justin Schmalberg is a world-leading Board Certified Veterinary Nutritionist®. From Gainesville, he directs the largest academic integrative veterinary medicine program in the United States. Justin undertakes all recipe formulation as KatKin’s Chief Veterinary Office. He’s one of the biggest advocates of a Fresh meat diet. And that’s exactly how he feeds his own three cats. Wave bye to cat food. This is KatKin. To create the food cats deserved Brett and Nikki realised they’d have to make it themselves. Having their very own KatKin Kitchen based in London makes sure that every meal is handmade, packed and delivered to the highest standards. They might not spend their free time watching Homeward Bound on loop anymore, but they’ve made it their mission to share their love of cats with the world – and give every single one their best nine lives, without compromise.
All pet owners would agree: Pets are part of our family. We wish them all the best: sweet sleep, delicious food and most importantly of all, good health! And this is where our story begins... Meet Elli and Ferdi, these two puppies have changed my life. I hope their story will inspire you as well. Both Ferdi and Elli suffered from diseases that no veterinarian could cure or even relieve their symptoms. Doctors suggested putting Ferdi to sleep and predicted a maximum of 2 more weeks for Elli. Frightened and frustrated, I tried to find other ways to fight for their lives. That's how I discovered many healthy pet feeding communities around the world. I met my mentors from NASA, KetoPet Sanctuary and the University of Helsinki, who introduced me to the fundamental problem - excess sugar in pet food. After learning the main reason why the health of pets all over the world is drastically declining (one out of two dogs suffers from cancer), I made the big decision to cook my own RAW food for my puppies. Wonder how it went? Well, Ferdinand lived for another four years, and Elli is still with us! Not just two of the predicted weeks, but almost three years! And it wasn't stopping there. Together with the teachers, we did a lot of independent research, interacted with thousands of pet owners and thereafter created the ZENOO food recipe. It's not only an organic meat/RAW food subscription for your beloved pet. We are developing an online school, organizing meetings and hosting many other pet-loving related activities. We wholeheartedly invite you to become a member of the ZENOO family.

Trabajar en algo que nos apasione Como muchas otras ideas de éxito, Barkibu nació en la servilleta de papel de un bar cualquiera. Pablo, Quique y Patri, los socios fundadores, buscaban algo en lo que verter toda su pasión y potencial. Una idea a la que dedicar la mayor parte de su tiempo. Una idea en la que creyesen y que los enamorara. Y sólo había una idea que cumpliera todos estos requisitos: colaborar en la mejora de la calidad de vida de los animales. Nada de acudir a foros donde cualquiera puede respondernos cuando tenemos alguna duda sobre la salud o los cuidados de nuestra mascota. Información profesional veterinaria de primera mano y fácilmente accesible. Barkibu viene de un proceso muy duro de brainstorming...Para que luego haya quien diga Barbiku! Barkibu nació con la idea de crecer e internacionalizarse, así que queríamos algo que se entendiera en el extranjero. De ahí el Bark. También queríamos que los motivadores de esta empresa, nuestros niños-perros, estuvieran representados, ya que sin ellos no existiríamos en primer lugar. Like many other successful ideas, Barkibu was born on the paper napkin of a typical bar. Pablo, Quique and Patri, the founding partners, were looking for something in which to pour all their passion and potential. An idea to which you dedicate most of your time. An idea that they believed in and that would make them fall in love. And there was only one idea that met all these requirements: collaborate in improving the quality of life of animals. Nothing to go to forums where anyone can answer us when we have any questions about the health or care of our pet. First-hand and easily accessible professional veterinary information. Barkibu comes from a very hard brainstorming process ... So that later there will be someone who says Barbiku! Barkibu was born with the idea of growing and internationalizing, so we wanted something that could be understood abroad. Hence the Bark . We also wanted the motivators of this company, our child-dogs, to be represented, as without them we would not exist in the first place.

We know nothing compares to coming home to a wiggle butt or waking up to soft purrs. We want every pet to have the best care, but know it can be hard when vet visits are often only once or twice a year. Our stomachs drop when we don't know if their ear scratching is excessive or if behavior changes are a sign of something more serious. We spend hours finding the best paw wax for winter ice or looking into raw food and multivitamin combos for their long term joint health. Until now, our best option was often going to the emergency vet. Our founders, Eric and Zubin, have been there as pet parents themselves. The idea behind Fuzzy began when Zubin rushed his pup Mo to the emergency vet. After 7 stressful hours, he left with a $2500 bill, only to learn the luxated patella could have been treated at home. Always available via 24/7 Live Vet Chat, our Fuzzy vet team can help with all issues- big or small. Through curated, vet-recommended health supplements and a mobile app that personalizes pet care, help is just a click away.
I am a philosopher specialized in philosophy of mind and language. In particular, I am interested in the nature of consciousness, and the way in which we experience and interpret the world. I started my studies at the Central University of Venezuela in 2006, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in philosophy (2011) and a master’s degree in logic and philosophy of science (2015). In 2012, the university offered me a position as a professor of philosophy and I taught several courses there until 2017, when I enrolled in a PhD program at the University of Genoa, Italy. I have also published several papers in philosophy journals and participated in various international events. In 2020, while writing my PhD thesis, I realized that I had been immersed in philosophy for too long and decided to use my experience to rejoin the real world. In my years studying philosophy, I have learned many things, but the most important is that the world is what we make of it, there is not ultimate truth, no final word. We create our reality. Knowledge has somehow separated us from others and nature, perhaps it can also reunite us. Although I was born in Venezuela, my family is a blending of different nationalities and traditions. I have lived and studied in different countries, which are all part of who I am and what I want to be. My actions define me, not my nationality or my origins. I do not believe in borders or limits; they are only in our minds. The sensation of not belonging can be liberating, once we realize that, by not belonging somewhere, we belong everywhere. I speak three languages (Spanish, English, and Italian) and I enjoy learning from other cultures, as well as transmitting the values of my own. I also enjoy music, sports and nature.
è una società per azioni costituita nel 2017 dalla Matthews International, società appartenente al Gruppo statunitense Matthews e dalla Società per la Cremazione di Torino, costituita nel 1883. Scopo della nuova società è quello di coniugare le specifiche competenze dei due soci fondatori per fornire, sul mercato italiano ed europeo, un servizio efficiente ed efficace, basato su solidi principi etici e morali, coniugando questi con la miglior tecnologia disponibile. Tyche S.p.A. propone un modo di “pensare” il Cimitero e il Crematorio come luogo di erogazione di un servizio etico e sociale, dove si svolgono attività rituali allo scopo di ricucire la lacerazione del tessuto sociale che la morte di un animale rappresenta. Con Tyche Pet questo stesso approccio viene dedicato al mondo dell’affezione per gli animali domestici, sempre più parte integrante delle famiglie che hanno la fortuna di ospitarli e vivere con loro. Tyche Spa is a joint stock company established in 2017 by Matthews International , a company belonging to the American Matthews Group and by the Società per la Cremazione di Torino , established in 1883. The purpose of the new company is to combine the specific skills of the two founding partners to provide, on the Italian and European market, an efficient and effective service, based on solid ethical and moral principles, combining these with the best technology available. Tyche SpA proposes a way of "thinking" the Cemetery and the Crematorium as a place for providing an ethical and social service , where ritual activities are carried out in order to mend the laceration of the social fabric that the death of an animal represents. With Tyche Pet this same approach is dedicated to the world of affection for pets, increasingly an integral part of families who are lucky enough to host and live with them.
Woodrock Animal Rescue is a leading non-profit, pro-life, rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing organisation in South Africa.

Woodrock Animal Rescue is now based on 8.5 hectares in the beautiful Hennops River Valley, South-West of Pretoria. Woodrock Animal Rescue assists homeless, abused, neglected, stray, injured, ill, geriatric and unwanted animals that would otherwise have miserable lives and premature deaths – animals who have no voice of their own! Woodrock Animal Rescue is one of the oldest, independent, non-profit, pro-life domestic animal rescue centres in South Africa. Our Ethos is Education and Sterilisation.

Karan Dalal and Arnuv Tandon founded PetCode in May 2020, and the origins of the idea were unconventional to say the least. After bouncing ideas off one another at length in a Snapchat group chat, the idea of a QR tag that virtualized pet information surfaced. Karan and Arnuv fell in love with the concept, and expanded it to incorporate a suite of features that assuage the difficulties of pet management. Our team has been working tirelessly for the past 8 months to build PetCode, and we’re ecstatic to finally introduce this ultimate, all-in-one pet management system. Our passionate high school team hails from across North America and is composed of skilled, passionate individuals committed to bringing users the best experience possible.

We are a small , previously self funded animal rescue located near Penamacor, Portugal. We rescue ,rehabilitate ,sterilise , and vaccinate dogs who have been lost or abandoned. Our aim is to get them to good health, and then find new homes for them. Natasha Elisia Roger' mum poured every part of her soul into the mission of rescuing animals, to make sure they had a safe place to live and ensure they were fed, she spend so many years tirelessly and selflessly working with animals everyone else seemed to given up on to make sure they ended up in a loving and caring forever home. Her biggest ambition was to set up her own rescue and in the past year she reached that incredible goal with Malcata Animal Association Portugal. Unfortunately she will never get a chance to see the fruit of her labours due to tragically passing on Wednesday 4th September 2019. Her family want to keep her dream alive and make her proud.
The formation of AfriPaw was inspired by local Marina Da Gama resident, Annette van der Berg, who started feeding a small number of township dogs in Vrygrond (an informal settlement near Muizenberg in the Western Cape) every morning on her way to work. The few dogs quickly became 10, then 20 and then 30. Annette started working with the community by helping people with their pets, scouting the area over weekends, facilitating sterilisations, re-homing unwanted pets and stepping in when there were emergencies. Her faithful work soon came to the attention of a reporter from a local newspaper, The False Bay Echo. An article, entitled “Feeding the Hungry Hounds” appeared on 9 February 2017 and Fish Hoek resident, Anél Wesson responded to the general invitation for assistance. The two joined forces the very next day and the idea of AfriPaw was conceived. AfriPaw Animal Welfare partners with low-income communities to educate families on their pets’ primary needs and facilitates free sterilisations, as well as access to affordable primary healthcare, food and shelter for township pets. With our door-to-door approach we aim to form relationships and build trust with the community and our first priority is to always try and help pets where they are. Our strategy is to identify, train and equip responsible, animal-loving locals, who are our eyes and ears and who are a permanent presence in the community, ultimately becoming respected “go-to” persons. At this point, AfriPaw focuses its efforts on serving the people and pets of Vrygrond, reputedly the oldest informal settlement in the Western Cape, situated just off the M5, close to Muizenberg. There are approximately 90 000 residents and thousands of dog and cats living in this community. Our geographic boundary is strictly Vrygrond (which includes Seawinds and Overcome Heights) but we hope to replicate our model and expand our reach to other low-income communities in the future. The Vision of AfriPaw Animal Welfare is to see communities that treasure their pets, provide for their needs, and protect them from suffering and disease. Our Mission is to partner with low-income communities to educate families on their pets’ primary needs and facilitate access to affordable support services, with a focus on mass sterilisation. Our Objectives are to encourage responsible and accountable pet ownership and prevent neglect by: • Building relationships with the community to create a trusting and enabling environment. • Educating the community on the primary needs and healthcare of their animals. • Facilitating access to affordable medical care, food and shelter. While the rescue and rehoming of animals is necessary in cases of abuse or intentional neglect, we aim to avoid removing pets for several reasons: Neglect of pets often occurs because essential services and support to ensure ideal pet care are inaccessible and unaffordable to pet owners. We find that most pet owners welcome us and embrace our help with deep gratitude and co-operation. We want to foster responsible pet ownership and accountability in our partner communities by promoting optimal pet care and working with community volunteers and role-models. Removal of pets often aids owners to quickly replace the old pet with a new puppy or kitten, resulting in a vicious cycle where little lasting good is achieved.
A Khayelitsha animal clinic’s homeless dog shelter flooded in last week’s rainstorm. The Mdzananda Animal Clinic reports that their organisation is in desperate need of assistance. Homeless dogs needed to be moved to their small hospital cages during the flood as they had no other space for them. The Mdzananda Animal Clinic strives to see a community that cares for every animal be it a pet, neighbour's pet, stray or farm animal. A community that loves animals is a healthy community. By looking after an animal people learn responsibility, respect for life, compassion and non-violence. Mdzananda works on enhancing the wellbeing of animals and their human companions through providing low cost veterinary health care services, education and by forming partnerships inside and outside of the community. We have a strong focus on community empowerment and education and focus on understanding the community’s needs, embracing this, gaining their respect and trust. Mdzananda is in the community, for the community. It all started with a community hero who wanted to help his neighbours pets. Mr Joe from Khayelitsha pushed a trolley and water bucket around the community, bathing and feeding community pets. He soon attracted volunteers to assist him. A long standing volunteer was able to secure funding to assist this man in his animal saving efforts. Overwhelmed by the funding, he decided to hand the project over to this volunteer who grew the Mdzananda Animal Clinic and became the full time Project Manager up until May 2015 when a new manager joined Mdzananda. Mr Joe, who is now elderly, lived down the road and visits on a continious basis. He helps with education, finding homeless pets new homes and has planted a vegetable garden on the premisis to show community members how much can be done with a small space. Highly respected and supported by the Khayelitsha community, the Mdzananda Animal Clinic was founded in 1996 in response to the need to provide primary veterinary healthcare services to a fast growing community that had no access to help for their animals. It is a permanent, non profit, veterinary council registered animal hospital serving up to 1000 pets per month. Initially Mdzananda worked from a single donated shipping container with no running water or electricity. Today, thanks to the support of our donors, Mdzananda is a fully functioning animal haven running 6 days a week. Mdzananda means mange in the local isiXhosa dialect - a skin disease. Mr Joe called it the "mange clinic" as there were so many animals suffering from mange when he started his animal saving efforts. We also like the fact that "ananda" means extreme happiness in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Please help if you can: The clinic is appealing to the public to give an emergency monetary gift to help them upgrade their shelter unit and care for the increased number of pet patients in winter.

I'm a Brazilian native, English Portuguese translator and interpreter with 12 years of experience, 50 books translated, and over 1,500 hours of on-site interpreting work. I also do proofreading, localization, transcriptions, and write book reviews/reports. I have a background in arts, fashion, and communication, and I volunteer for Mercy for Animals, Ted Translators, and NGO Olhar Animal. I love to travel and I am currently studying travel writing. I wrote about my journey as a freelancer and working remotely while traveling the world. So it's been a year since the madness started and somehow it feels like nothing has changed but A LOT has changed. My 'now' has been staying low-key and wrapping up projects. I completed the book I was translating in the last semester of 2020. Added some very final touches to a book I worked on early-mid last year, which in turn wraps up a project I started working on in December 2018. Excited for it to come out. Also, I guess I can say I reached the 50 translated books mark (even though a part of it was written in Portuguese so I didn't translate the entire book)! I am still learning French and still feeling like a caveman who can speak single words but not quite put together an entire sentence lol. I also completed a Reiki Level 1 training and initiation course (remotely, ofc) and am now Reiki certified. I am trying to enjoy the little things, like a very rare outing to Rio's Botanical Garden (accidentally picked a lovely 113ºF day, sweet lord), and being in awe of this Sumaúma tree (a personal favorite of Tom Jobim, who would visit the place every day and sit by this exact tree).

Taking our past into the future with Carolina Reviglio! Carolina enjoyed a carefree childhood in the Piedmont countryside. With many cousins and friends, the passion for culture was instilled from an early age. Surrounded by beauty and art in the family mansion Cimena, expertly curated by her grandmother namesake, Carolina. On the paternal side of the family, her Venetian grandmother was equally influential. The unique character and rich culture of Venice, epitomizes Carolina. While travelling often, she feels most at home, in the isles of Venice. Schooled in Italy and the United States, lived in provinces throughout the length of Italy, Carolina considers herself truly Italian, with an international vision. “My country is rich in heritage, but poor in the pocket to keep it so. It saddens me to see so many buildings in a state of disrepair.” She has honed the skills of renovation and interiors of historic buildings, since 1987. Learning by trial and error, spurned on by failure and ultimate success, Carolina has grown and prospered. Now is the time to give back. Helping artisans of all disciplines to find work and ply their trade with pride. Matching projects to professionals and vice versa. As Heritage Doyenne, Carolina’s primary contribution to this unique initiative, is to encourage the participation of Heritage Ambassadors. This cause is yet another open avenue, to take our past into the future. By intertwining culture and heritage, to create more synergy. “Only once we fully understand where we come from… and truly appreciate our heritage… can we imagine a fabulous future filled with the richness of our past. Life is ours to design!” ~ Carolina Reviglio
Been there, done that... doing it all over again! Herby, a product of South Africa, vintage '63, Internaut since '82. Roaming the world since the age of 23 to date. Jack of all trades, master of none. Techie, pilot, nomad. Can travel~live~work, anywhere. Global village citizen, living without boundaries, my primary passions are aviation, the sea and Ubuntu Synergy. I am, because we are. Together. We create unity, foster community, motivate affiliates to generate residual revenue, and facilitate networking events. It's time to LIVE your life! My mission is to help people from all walks of life, gain financial independence, while caring for the world around us. I believe charity begins at the cash register. Just say no to donations. Learn how to earn. Make sure you have a meal, an income, clothes, a home and good health. Constantly bombing your mind with books and exercise, are two battles that win the war of longevity. I want to grow old. There is no planet B. I'm a big fan of renewable resources and ethical commerce. Gardens, farming, trees and bees, and anything that carries fleas. Helping our paw-legged friends in shelters, finding furever homes much faster. Same for birds, horses, donkeys, circus prisoners and liberating zoos. Noble causes that need proactive participants. Anyone can help: Scholars, students, employment seekers, those just over broke. Single and stay-at-home parents. Business owners, administrators and managers of any ilk. Retrenched and retired folks who still have much to give. Everyone can become successful super affiliates. Generating residual income is easy, and I will be your guide. With 40+ years in technology, aviation and extensive travel, this digital nomad has a wealth of experience to share. Helping others navigate the fear of failure and proven pathway to success.
