Let it go on the record that this is my favourite episode on the Africana Woman podcast. They say parents do not have a favourite child, that's a lie. I explain why it is my favourite right at the end. Meryanne has so much to share including:

- the story of her ancestry

- being authentic to who you are

- creating sustainable economic opportunities for African artisans

- legacy & succession

- what being the beneficiary of generational wealth did for her

- entrepreneurship

Former Parisian lawyer. Passionate about architecture and interiors. Self taught architect and interior designer. Own and design award winning hospitality concepts in Marrakech since 1989. Won the 2000 Harpers and Queens award of " Best Private estate to rent in the world". Author of "Inside Marrakesh: enchanting homes and gardens" published by Rizzoli NY which went in record times in second print. I believe that hospitality is a tool to change the economy and opportunities of sectors of the population in Africa who masters crafts but not college education.

Everything in this world has evolved except Education. Phones have changed over time. TVs have changed. Fashion has changed. Even makeup. Yet somehow Education is impervious to change, let alone improvement. It does seem a little suspect that 60 years after independence our children are still learning in the same way and learning the same content as during colonial times. Okay I exaggerate, instead men slotted themselves into the history books and that was about all that changed.  Tebogo and I examine the difference between well funded schools and those that are less resourced. We cover:

  • Differentiated teaching / learning
  • Parents roles
  • Reasons why education has not changed
  • Private vs Govt schools

Tebogo Kangote III wears a few hats however professionally she is an educator. She grew up in a small dusty township called GaRankuwa in Pretoria, South Africa. Tebogo grew up being made to believe she can do anything she wanted to do regardless of who says what. After completing high school in the mountains of Mmakau , her parents had no objection with her pursuing a Jazz and popular Music Diploma. Unfortunately, her father was retrenched and she couldn't complete the course. This is when her childhood fantasy of becoming a teacher was realised. Tebogo got a scholarship to study BEd at UNISA under the Thandulwazi Internship while interning at one of the best schools in South Africa St Stithians for the duration of her studies. Zambia was chosen for her by God or fate. Tebogo fell in love and got married to a Zambian man, which is why she currently resides in Lusaka, Zambia.
