Originating from Cape Town, South Africa, Angelique Tostee has worked for several financial services and consulting organizations as a senior business analyst and project manager during her career. A highlight in her career entailed working for songo.info, a South African sport and social-development program that is based in Kayamandi, Stellenbosch. She attributes great learnings in her professional and personal life during her time with songo where she appreciated the opportunity to work closely with world champion mountain biker Christoph Sauser and community leader Songo Fipaza. The experience afforded Ms. Tostee the opportunity to get a better understanding of life in South Africa's townships and work with the young adults in this community. This has lead to her looking to formalise studies in this sector. Beyond her professional accomplishments, Ms. Tostee enjoys numerous pastimes. An adventure seeker and interested in understanding cultures around the world, she has visited India, Nepal, Tibet, Chile, and Bolivia, among other countries. These travels have provided insight and experiences, and a greater appreciation for different cultures around the world. Also interested in physical fitness, she completed three Ironman triathlon competitions, as well a number of mountain biking and trail running events including the seven-day Absa Cape Epic mountain bike race and the seven-day 4 Deserts Atacama Crossing.
