Beyonifer McGee wears many hats.  

She is a mother, counsellor and problem solver.  

In 2018, she received a message on Facebook. 

The sender was requesting help: bullying at a local high school seemed to be on the rise, and they wanted to use McGee's expertise to facilitate an anti-bullying workshop. 

At first, she was overwhelmed by the number of pupils affected by bullying.

However, the inaugural workshop motivated her to formalise the initiative and start an organisation, called Good Enuf.

Four years later, the non-profit works with the Western Cape local government department and Childline South Africa.

They run anti-bullying campaigns that use science experiments to help children learn critical life skills.
