Pinky Mokwena is a 28-year-old cum laude BTech Environmental Science graduate. She is currently on the final phase of her master’s degree from the faculty of science. Apart from being actively involved in spreading the message of sustainability through her Miss Earth South Africa journey as Miss Water, she enjoys the quietness of late sunset afternoons reading a good book and having a cup of tea with her great-grandmother. She is the only child of an only child, which she believes is the excuse for why she has five birth names on her identity document. She dreams of simply living a full life that reflects courage, her passion for life and her fearless approach towards loving all and leading with compassion. Her mission is to significantly impact communities by inspiring and spurring people through her passion and pursuit for environmental justice. Pinky Mokwena scooped first prize at the overall InterUniversity Innovation Challenge 2021 Blue Oceans Award. This innovation competition, hosted at the French Embassy, came with R150000 in price money
