Nompumelelo Mthethwa


I nominate my beautiful hardworking partner Nompumelelo who is a capable & a qualified agriculture graduate, very passionate about farming giving representation to young black women in a historically old white male dominated industry.

Representation matters so she is a beacon of hope to other little girls and if I could talk to her younger self I would tell her that she will one-day discover strength she never knew she possessed to overcome life's adversity & blossom into the best version of herself, inspiring other brown skin girls to do stuff they never thought possible. Working to ensure that the community is food secure is her super power.

Also, whenever we are at a restaurant she never misses an opportunity to remind me that I wouldn't have a meal to order if it wasn't for her, agriculture & farmers. ????????

She is a hero quietly toiling away to make sure we get fed.
