The #iKTribe is a family, built on different personalities, backgrounds, talents and abilities – who are all drawn together out of the need to shake things up in the fintech space.
Who is Pam?
I am funny, loving, head strong but also friendly and definitely very family orientated. I love chilling with my friends and family, oh, and meeting new people. I spend lots of time outdoors enjoying nature and am always seeking new adventures.
What’s your role at iKhokha?
At iKhokha, I am a Customer Relations and Sales Specialist (sounds fancy hey haha). I offer customised solutions and products to merchants, based on their needs, through service excellence and effective communication. I try to help build their businesses by offering them products they need. Why? Because I firmly believe that when our customers grow, we grow too.
Who is Pam outside of iKhokha?
Yoh! Pam is a mother, a sister, a daughter, a partner and a damn good cook (haha). Seriously though, cooking is definitely a hobby I find therapeutic. But wait, cooking with a glass of wine in hand makes me feel even better 😊
What’s your biggest strength?
I have to admit that I am a good listener. I consider myself the Dr Phil of my group (haha). Listening to people and understanding them teaches me valuable lessons that I actually practice daily – because we only live once, so living a life helping others is what I consider a life well lived.
Name of the last book you read?
Mmmm… “Unbecoming to Become” by Ayanda Borotho. This book is about a young black South African woman who faces difficult circumstances and always strives to be better. It taught me a lot about facing adversity; about staring my challenges in the face and tackling them head on because I know I can be the change I want to see. It’s made me want to be a strong woman my son can look up to; and when he one day chooses a life partner, I want to know that I have set a good example of what a good woman is.
Your advice to yourself on how to handle a stressful situation?
Panic creates more stress! So why panic? I always remain calm and try to assess a situation. I look at things from many different angles and then I tackle them one by one, based on the level of priority and significance it holds.
Describe iKhokha in one word.
If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
If you could be on a reality TV show, which one would you choose and why?
The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. Laughter is the best medicine and I enjoy a good laugh. Let’s face it – Trevor has great talent when it comes to making his audience laugh.
