Cindy Mkaza-Siboto
Recognised as one of the 100 Brightest Young Minds in Africa, Cindy Mkaza-Siboto is the co-founder of Emagqabini Education Academy, an educational non-profit organisation operating in Site B Khayelitsha.

The organisation - which was established to assist young people from the township through academic support, mentorship and career planning- started off assisting 15 learners and today supports more than 100 young people.

The opportunity to speak at this year’s TEDxCapeTown main event is an exciting one for Cindy, who not only aims to inspire more young people to see the impact of the smallest actions, but hopes to spread the message far and wide that we can all be part of creating change in our communities. A sentiment we can all learn from and adopt.
