Markie Tepa­nyega is one of South Africa’s most tal­ented young women with great pas­sion for do­ing great. Be­ing a model, dancer, poet and Youth Men­tor, the 26 year old is also an ex­ec­u­tive mem­ber of “Ideal Galaxy Ex­clu­sive Me­dia and En­ter­tain­ment”. She is ex­cep­tion­ally self-man­aged and fo­cuses more on en­sur­ing and main­tain­ing a pos­i­tive self-im­age. “I have a feel­ing of cer­tainty about my­self and trust in my own abil­ity which lead to my pow­er­ful con­fi­dence that come from hav­ing a pos­i­tive self-im­age and be­ing aware of my SWOT anal­y­sis im­ple­ment,” Markie hold high the state­ment that says; "beauty with brains" as she com­pleted her ma­tric in 2010, fur­thered her stud­ies at Tsh­wane Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy study­ing Hu­man Re­sources Man­age­ment.

With her mag­nif­i­cent pas­sion for ed­u­ca­tion, she added Elec­tri­cal En­gi­neer­ing at Seshego Tvet Col­lege. “Be­ing a strong and de­ter­mined young woman, I found my break­through and worked as Data Cap­turer at De­part­ment of sport, arts and cul­ture un­der li­brary services,” she says.

Markie tried by all means to get out of her com­fort zone af­ter her work con­tract ended. But she did not stop do­ing the best for her fu­ture as she em­barked on a jour­ney of fur­ther­ing her stud­ies and en­rolled for a short course in Busi­ness En­tre­pre­neur Skill and Kitchen queen. She also ob­tained a cer­tifi­cate of In­spec­tor Train­ing un­der Build­ing Reg­u­la­tions, Souls, Geotech, Foun­da­tions, Su­per­struc­ture Roof, Prac­ti­cal com­ple­tion and Health and Safety at work­place from NHBRC. “This is a born tal­ent to be and am sure to grow as recog­nis­able pub­lic fig­ure, role model and busi­ness women and years to come,” she says. Young women should first em­brace and ac­cept who they are and ac­knowl­edge the gift. “My ad­vice to young women is that, they need to learn to un­der­stand that the road to suc­cess comes with lot of bar­ri­ers and chal­lenges, but they must also strive for suc­cess and never as­so­ciate them­selves with neg­a­tive peo­ple as that con­trib­ute a lot into low­er­ing their self-es­teem. I say to them, get up, hold your head high, dream it, plan it and live it. It is now or never,” she says.
