Hi, I’m Nic Manshon.
Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career. 
If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject. 
Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning.
After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again. That was a good choice!
The journey started out at CPUT, studying industrial design and serving at a local church, heading up the media department. After that, I got a scholarship for digital filmmaking at SAE. I never received a scholarship before so I was super stoked to do the course, not realizing what the future may hold.

Amanda Maphumulo ~ Naenda



I'm the next President!!

Haha, where does one even start? 

I'm a visionary, a dreamer & "a stalker of success", I often call myself an alien because even I can't fathom how my mind works.

I've dealt with things that could break most people, now that I'm finally starting to find my voice in this world I honestly feel like I owe it to myself to be nothing but great, extraordinary & absolutely beautiful (inside & outside). My main focus is hard work & self-worth.

I am Amanda Maphumulo but most know me as Naenda (I've decided to go by Amanda because most can't pronounce the name Naenda, they just like how foreign it sounds😣 )

I am currently doing my last year in Varsity College at 19 years old & I'm doing a Diploma in Business Management & Entrepreneurship, yes I know lol. How?? Well it's a long story. 

I'm just glad it's my last year because now I get to do what I really love - EVERYTHING MEDIA. I'm a creative, I love telling stories & I love listening to them. I'm a host (events) / radio personality / TV host / a business woman / I might just take your job. 😂

Basically you'll see me everywhere you go in SA, just give me a few months. Well that's before I take over in the US too. I'm a lover of cars. I'd die for a G63. I love fashion, dressing up & looking fly. Which reminds me, can anybody put in a good word for me at Topshop?? I'll be a great ambassador don't you guys think??

I value honesty, respect & I vibe with anybody who has a dream that most people doubt because it's "impossible". Tell me about your dreams, how you plan on taking over & how you going to use your power to influence the world. 

My motto is : "Never entertain anything MUNDANE!!" - which simply means don't entertain small things, never dream just so you can afford a G-WAGON, your dreams must afford you G-WAGONS!! There is no room for mediocrity!! And to all my visionaries : SEE YOU AT THE TOP!! ❤
