Currenly living in Johannesburg, Ipeleng Selele from South Africa wants to re-brand Africa.

"There are so many great African women but their stories are untold."

- Ipeleng Selele, the founder and CEO of the Khumo Group

She is the founder and CEO of a branding and marketing firm, the Khumo Group.
