Meet Sibongile Sambo, the founder of SRS Aviation, Africa’s first female aviation company. Sambo who has always wanted to be a flight attendant, started her own Aviation company after she was told by South African airways that she did not meet the minimum height requirement to become one.
She had to sell her car and use her mother’s pension money to set it up and in 2004, she was commissioned with her first flight for the South African government.
Sambo has helped three women get their private pilot licenses.
According to her;
“I’m where I am today because somebody invested in me. It’s my opportunity now to invest in other people.”
She is our #WCW because despite discouragements and limitations, she refused to give up her dreams. She is relentless, determined, and now successful.
