Accolade Ubisi Group Coordinator: Media & Communications

Accolade manages digital marketing, communications and social media for the group.

Born and raised in a small village called Lillydale Trust outside Kruger National Park, Accolade had an interesting educational background that was nothing short of adventure and learning. After eight years of public education, through networks from Londolozi Private Game Reserve, where both her parents have worked for more than 20 years, Accolade was sponsored into a remedial school where she was taught both English and Afrikaans, and was later promoted into one of Nelspruit’s top performing high schools, Penryn College.

Accolade pursued a Communications and Media Bachelor of Arts from the University of Limpopo, then interned for South African National Parks (SANParks) for a year after she graduated in 2013. Accolade then learned about the Good Work Foundation where she is currently working in media and marketing.

Accolade believes that “everyone has an important story. Not one of us chose the beginning of our stories, but we are each craftsmen of how our stories will play out and end.”
