We truly believe everybody’s got that something special, but when you meet somebody and can see it right away – it’s pretty exciting. We first started ‘having beer chats’ with Binwe back in 2020 and it quickly became apparent that she has a massive spark and an even bigger IQ!
Anyone can strike up a conversation with Binwe, and chances are, she won’t let you pass her by without her warm and friendly smile and some engaging conversation. It’s impossible to ‘put Binwe in a box’, never mind trying to sum her up in a few sentences – but let’s see if we can say all this before you can finish your beer!
Binwe can play 4 musical instruments, she speaks French, she’s a cat mom, was briefly in a metal band, has 15 tattoos, has been described as “the mind of Stephen Hawking with the voice of Schalk Burger” – and most importantly loves all things beer. Also, while we are at it, she has a fantastic sense of humour, undeniable street style, and a keen interest in politics, power and pop culture. She writes about film, art, books, big and small screens and design. And, when she’s not overthinking pop culture on the internet or posting Instagram stories, she’s running a race, making a playlist or halfway into a delicious beer.
Binwe’s been recognized through awards and scholarships, not to mention her own company’s success – but we truly believe she’s only scratched the surface of the difference she’s gonna make in Africa. When you meet someone with as much passion and drive, you honestly just can’t wait to see what the future holds.
We asked her for one of her favourite quotes, and here’s what she had to say: “Let us never be weary in doing good, for at the proper time, we will reap a harvest if we do not give up”
Binwe is legit, and we are thrilled to have her in the family. Cheers Binwe and welcome to the Jack Black fam!
