The risks of overdoing - Amanda Dambuza


Amanda Dambuza is not only beautiful but she has this personalit­y that makes each and every one that she meets feel complete. She is not in your face, but is warm and just full of life and wisdom.

When she starts to share pearls of wisdom on how one can navigate their way around the maze that is life, she literally inspires you to just get up and do what needs to be done. Sharing her own stories of how she literally upped and started to work on her many projects is such a pleasure, and testament that each and every one of us is destined for greatness. This year, Dambuza is working on a very ambitious project, an animation that is made straight out of Africa, and will not only inspire the African

child, but children all over the world. The animation is based on one of her books, ‘ A Brave Girl named AYAH’. Already, she is in talks with industry leaders in the film and movie industry to turn this dream into reality. And she is very confident that in a matter of time, the animation will be brought to life.

For those who are not familiar with her works, Dambuza is an author, based in South Africa,

Dambuza is a married mother of three children who lives in Johannesbu­rg, South Africa. She is the author of ‘ Therefore I Rose and Baked in Pain’, a memoir about how she rose above her circumstan­ces to become a globally celebrated business woman and humanitari­an. She has also authored the children’s book ‘ A Brave Girl named AYAH’, an educationa­l story that tackles various topics and gives hope.

She was recently in Botswana for the inaugural Business & Leadership Retreat, an initiative of City & Safari Internatio­nal. The event was held at Chose Game Lodge, and it targeted Senior Corporate Executives and business leaders from Botswana and South Africa. Dambuza was invited to share her story, and inspire those in attendance as a way to boost their morals as they seek to achieve their dreams.
