Vuyelwa Mamashila

Account Manager 

4 years in the advertising industry. From the first day I stepped in an ad agency I knew I had to pursue a career in this industry, seeing the buzz and energy enticed me to be a part of this dynamic industry. I have worked on big brands such as Mondelez and Nestle.

Personality trait: Observant
I’ve always been fascinated by astrological readings and star signs from a young age. When in conversation with new people I tend to ask what their star signs are just to get a feel or an understanding of their presence. I have come to the realisation that people of the same star signs/ rising and moons are more or less similar in traits, behaviour, and in how they do things. Disclaimer- no formal studies/ research was conducted, this is based on my experiences and the people within my circles. LOL!
