Christel Smith

I was born in Polokwane, South Africa and raised in Pretoria, South Africa. I have a passion for my country, and I am aiming to contribute to the growth and development of South Africans. In 2012, I started studying towards a degree through Varsity College Pretoria. During the time period of my studies, I developed a love and interest for charity and events that benefit people with a disadvantage. I gained experience in the planning of charity events through a Varsity College innitiative called ‘VC Cares’.

In 2013, I was approached by Katlego Thindisa, Executive Director of Balance House. I was asked to join his team as the Corporate Communications Director of Balance House. Balance House gave me the opportunity to be in the position of advancing education, developing individuals and contributing to growth in my community, as well as living out my passion for communication in the corporate environment. I will be finishing my BA degree in Corporate Communication at the end of 2014, and will be graduating early 2015.

I believe in Balance House and the potential the organisation and the brand has, I believe that it is possible to do exactly what you want to do and to have a career that you absolutely love.
