Giselle Esau is the youngest executive to work at Table Mountain Aerial Cableway. The 34-year-old founding owner of The Mighty and The Mercy has signed “big names” to her marketing company during the pandemic. Esau wants people to know that women of colour are a force to be reckoned with. Her goal is to be as great as the next person, and not based on race or gender, but her work — and she wants to empower young South African women to do the same. She regrets fully trusting older people in positions of power and assuming they know better, but this experience taught her that she should always believe in herself. The young executive says: “I would love to continue to push boundaries with my creative campaigns, and show people who come after me that being unique and thinking outside the box is actually your superpower.”
