She’s an all-round creative entrepreneur and her achievements surpass her mere 22 years age.  She’s a Stylist, Social Media Influencer and catalogue model. She’s had a stint as a Fashion Writer at Echo Newspaper and she’s also a Dancer at Mophato Dance Theatre, although she couldn’t accompany the I Love Ensemble to New York last year, she played an integral part during the preparation and rehearsals in what the world has lauded as a world class performance, making them the only Batswana group to have graced the Broadway PlayStation theatre stage.

Away from becoming a socialite, she’s also a graduate of Business Management doing final year with Botswana Accountancy College. Her brand identity was founded firmly in 2015 dubbed March Couture which is an androgynous fashion label all about boldness, elegance and sophistication.

“We produce casual couture and ready-to-wear clothing for our stylish customers.” She is this week’s crush…
