Sizwe is a Zulu speaking native born in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Having lived across many provinces around South Africa, he has been fortunate enough to grow up around diverse environments and understand the contrasting cultures within South Africa. Sizwe is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at the University of Cape Town. He has served as the Transformation Representative for UCT’s Science Students’ Council, a Science Faculty student mentor and a Computer Science & Applied Mathematics tutor. He was selected as a student mentor for high school learners, where he had the privilege of shaking hands with the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, upon her visit to South Africa. Sizwe is the co-founder of Tokyo Industries, an online branding company, and is also an online journalist for Princeton University’s Business Today, America’s largest student-run publication. Sizwe is also a Project Manager at InvestSoc, UCT’s biggest executive society, where he is responsible for unleashing and exposing student entrepreneurial leadership potential.
Sizwe is very passionate about entrepreneurship, social development, technology, and one day hopes to open his own tea shop in rural Japan, where elders can gamble with dominoes over cups of tea.
