Growing up in the impoverished community of Mahikeng in North West did not stop Alice Moeti from pursuing and achieving her dreams. Having obtained both her BSc and honours in quantity surveying at the University of Pretoria, her career continued to soar. With seven years of experience in the built environment, Moeti is currently the associate director at Nonku Ntshona & Associates Quantity Surveyors. She heads the retail, commercial and residential sector within the company, and the overall business development portfolio within the quantity surveying division. Regarding what inspires her, Moeti says, “The belief that we are on earth at this exact time for a purpose, and the search for that purpose is exhilarating.” She urges the country and specifically the construction industry to take note and acknowledge young women and afford them the necessary platform to grow without negative stigma or prejudice.
Take the leap of faith and intensify the amount of effort and work that is being put in presently, as the fruits will be evident in the future.
