“I was born in Zimbabwe, where my parents were in exile before my brother and I were sent back to SA in the late 1980s,” she says. That context of moving between spaces and different cultures made her open to experiencing new things, which is how she approaches her passion for food and her career.
ReWare, a business she co-founded with her business partner, Felix Martin-Aguilar, is a provider of certified, pre-owned Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy smartphones.
Giving the consumer the quality of a new smartphone at a fraction of the price, with a year’s warranty, the service is provided at 21 Edgars stores. The business has a few powerful objectives behind it. Extending the useful life of mobile devices means fewer phones are manufactured, which spares the environment and resources. Job creation is also at the core of ReWare’s business model because as the number of devices grows, so does the number of employment opportunities.
