​CLASS OF 2018

Tebogo is a Creative Director at MnR Digital Media and a Graphic Designer and Social Media Specialist at XS Health. MnR Digital Media is a level 1 B-BBEE contributor focused on creating and managing digital platforms that promote growth in business, ensuring digital platforms assist in achieving objectives. At XS Health, a natural supplements brand, she oversees all their graphic work, packaging, promotions and social media. Tebogo credits her Honours in Graphic Design at The IIE’s Vega with teaching her the skills she needed to succeed at work, particularly with the focus on software. She says, “These days industry wants someone who is a full package, someone who knows it all… and this is what the IIE's Vega teaches us.” She appreciates that Vega lecturers always had time for their students which is, "extremely important especially if you have students that are introverts and shy to ask questions,” because the lecturers ensure each student gets the attention they need with one-on-one consultations. She recommends Vega because the lecturers don’t limit themselves to lecturing, instead they build relationships with the students to nurture their talents. She says this personal touch goes the extra mile and, “is what makes the school and its teaching system great.” ​
