About Candidate

Picture this— the marketing landscape is changing rapidly as brands seek to break through the clutter of 30-second videos, 240-character tweets, and seemingly overwhelmed digital spaces.

In this evolving landscape, I envision a new era where authentic storytelling takes centre stage. My name is Anda Mtshemla and I am a driven, hard-working, detail-oriented and extremely passionate digital creator and communications enthusiast with a passion for content creation and a desire to make an impact.

Further Development and Education

Although I have obtained a formal degree in related to marketing and advertising, much of what I do and have a passion for is self-taught. My blog, 24Karrots, provided me with a unique opportunity to hone my skills in videography, content creation, video editing, photography, food styling, social media management, PR & influence and so much more.
