IT is not easy juggling a business, a family and a social life however, for Upper Highway’s Nomfundo Molefe, all one has to do is put one foot in front of the other, and keep moving.

Molefe is well known for her community outreach and helping women­ to find their self-worth.

She is also the managing director and co-founder of Michaelmas College­ (Pty) Ltd, founded in 1995.

Michaelmas College is a private company that trains nurses and social auxiliary workers, provisionally registered with Department of Higher Education and accredited with the South African Nursing Council and the Health and Welfare Seta.

Michaelmas College has four campuses in KwaZulu-Natal, one in the Western Cape and one in Gauteng­.

She is a popular speaker and a mentor in leadership. Molefe recently spent two days in Hillcrest educating and empowering more than 1000 women at The Robin Hood Foundation “Women of Africa Conference­”.

Her message was “never give up”. She said that no matter one’s circumstances they should always strive for more and never settle for second best.

“We should always know our self-worth and strive for it. We need to take ownership of our lives and be the best at everything we do.”
