Siyamthanda is completing her undergraduate studies in Finance, Investments and Financial Accounting at the University of the Western Cape. Her passions for financial freedom and social impact saw her marry the two into a career in impact investing. She is encouraged by UI’s mission and believes that a career in impact investing is the legacy she is called to leave in this world. Siyamthanda has gained experience in the field of finance through serving as the Chairperson for the UWC investment society, as well as participating in the impact investing bootcamp hosted by UI during her summer break. She is honoured and thrilled to be part of UI’s exciting family.
When she is not crunching numbers or meeting deadlines, she is nurturing her epicureanism through tourism. She also enjoys binge watching Dragon’s Den on YouTube, cooking for the people she loves, hiking, and meditating by the beach.
