Bonolo Modise (Noli) is an entrepreneur and BA Media Studies & English graduate. She is now specialising in Brand Strategy as she studies towards her Honours Degree at The Independent Institute of Education's Vega School

When she's not focusing on her studies, Noli is creating beautiful jewellery. Her brand is available for viewing online at JewelleryByNoli on Instagram. She designs and makes all her jewellery herself. 

It all started as a hobby ten years ago after Noli took part in the MasterCard Junior Achievement South Africa mini-enterprise programme. Anyone looking for the perfect bling to round off their outfit or a gift for someone special would not regret buying one of Noli's designs.

Noli has a deep passion for dreadlocks and became the first International South African brand ambassador of a product brand for dreadlocks based in the USA. The young woman believes that for women, there are no limits to reaching their goals. There may come obstacles and challenges but "the baton of your #success is always in your hands".

Noli's words of encouragement to other women seek to keep them motivated and focused on their goals. 

"You are the only person that can keep it moving forward. Don't doubt or delay yourself because you can do it," she says.

The Independent Institute of Education (The IIE) is a division of the JSE-listed ADvTECH Group, Africa's largest private education provider. The IIE is the largest, most accredited registered private higher education institute in South Africa, and the only one accredited by The British Accreditation Council (BAC), the independent quality assurance authority that accredits private institutions in the UK. By law, private higher education institutions in South Africa may not call themselves Private Universities, although registered private institutions are subject to the same regulations, accreditation requirements and oversight as Public Universities.

The IIE has a history in education and training since 1909, and its brands - Rosebank College, Varsity College, The Business School at Varsity College and Vega - are widely recognised and respected for producing workplace-ready graduates, many of whom become industry-leaders in their chosen fields. The IIE offers a wide range of qualifications, from post-graduate degrees to short courses, on 20 registered higher education campuses across South Africa.
