Marang Molosiwa Is A Brightest Young Minds Alumni

Media personality and former Mantlwaneng presenter, Marang Molosiwaย was one of the 100 young Africans who attended the week long Brightest Young Minds (BYM) Summit in Johannesburg, South Africa that started on the 24th and ended on September 29.

Everyย  year, BYM identifies 100 young people (between 20 and 35) who are creating a positive social impact and are interested in learning from innovative young people. According to their website, BYM not only connects but mobilizes Africaโ€™s most innovative and responsible people.

At the annual summit, the young leaders are challenged to think about and act on solving social and environmental challenges. Molosiwa could not contain her excitement when she openly expressed her joy for being among the chosen 100 for the BYM summit.

She took to social media to announce that she is proud to announce her participation in this year’s Brightest Young Minds! BYM brings together 100 of Africa’s top minds who are young, creative and impactful change makers! “It is a privilege to be in the presence of youth from across Africa making incredible contributions in their communities! Let’s turn Africa’s potential to reality! We are its future leaders,โ€She wrote.

Molosiwa came onto the spotlight at only 11 years old as aย  presenter on BTVโ€™s only childrenโ€™s program, Mantlwaneng. Sheย  resurfaced years later, co-hosting My African Dream. She then moved away from the small screen and tried her hand in radio drama- a feat which landed her even more fans. In 2009 she took on the lead role in an HIV themed short film that formed part of the Soul-City/BP 10 part series, One Love Stories, another feat which probably inspired her to enrol for her first degree in drama at the University of Pretoria and for a Postgraduate degree in Drama and Film at the Wits University.
