Gugulethu Dube

ABOUT ME

Dubbing herself a "Multi-potentialite”, Gugu simply means she has a variety of interests and creative pursuits. Her love for words co-exists with a passion for television and radio broadcasting, philanthropy, travelling and fashion. She is a quirky, compassionate and conscientious ambivert, and prides herself in telling unapologetic stories of misrepresented people and places for social justice.

She values using her creativity as a tool to change the narrative of how the world perceives her community and Africa at large. Using various platforms as a writer, it is her mission to dismantle societal stereotypes and norms with hopes to influence and change the world.

Gugu hopes that one day before delivering her TED Talk, she will be introduced as an Unapologetic Christian and Copywriter, A Media Anchor, a Global Shaper, a Humanitarian and Social Entrepreneur.
