Forbes Africa’s 2021 30 under 30 list has just come out, and our very own Mihlali Ndamase is on it! The list includes some of the most forward-thinking young entrepreneurs around, and this 24-year-old South African superstar has made the cut.
It’s not surprising considering her incredible achievements. Mihlali has over 1 million Instagram followers and over 300k subscribers on her YouTube channel, where she posts tutorials, reviews and vlogs. She was also the first South African woman to model for luxury Swedish brand Daniel Wellington, so she’s internationally successful too!
If that wasn’t enough Mihlali is the co-founder of the Johannesburg based NGO the Siyasizana Foundation, which works to improve the lives of children in less fortunate communities through education, play and wellness.
She really uses her platform for good, not only doing charity work but educating her followers on safe and healthy beauty practices. Her big heart can be felt through the screen.

Mihlali truly is inspiring. She shows us that with enough hard work, dedication and heart, any woman can make a name for themselves. There’s a lot to learn from her path. Remember – you are just as capable! Let yourself be empowered by other strong women who have made it, and use that drive to succeed in everyday life or to fulfill your goals. You can do it too!
