Centurion’s very own ‘queen Bee’ was born and brought up in Zeerust, North West province. As an aspiring entertainment mogul looking to build a solid digital career, Boipelo was thrilled by the recent announcement of her being crowned as one of NIVEA’s 2022 Top 10 Skinfluencers. She graduated with a degree in Industrial Psychology and plans on getting her Honours Degree in the upcoming year, all while absorbing the learnings she is due to take away as part of the NIVEA Top 10 Skinfluencers’ 12 month programme.
“I was looking for an opportunity to take my digital content creator career to the next level and I couldn’t be more honoured to be one of ten talented ladies to form part of this empowering experience”, says Boipelo. This dynamic young lady believes that her authenticity, genuine down-to-earth nature, and her creativity are all elements that gave her a competitive edge over the other entrants.
Along with being a beauty that everyone relates to, Boipelo has a shared interest with her followers on topics such as black women empowerment and is a strong advocator against homophobia. Boipelo says that her consistency of character on and offline is what makes her more approachable and allows for more engagement from her followers, adding “I am not far removed from my audience and I am a firm believer in people being respectful towards each other irrespective of their backgrounds”.
A big motivator for Boipelo is to be an inspiration to the next black girl. She wishes to fulfil her duties as one of NIVEA’s Top 10 Skinfluencers for 2022 and says that she will use this opportunity to uplift and empower every single one of her followers. “I want to learn, remain consistent and be on top of my game as always while inspiring others to also reach for their dreams”, says Boipelo.
To Boipelo, the NIVEA Skinfluencer Search has opened a door of opportunities that not only helps combat the unemployment rate but also gives people, much like her, a fighting chance in earning a living as a content creator – especially considering that there is huge growth in the digital space.
Along with skin care routines and NIVEA Rose Care Face Hydrating Sheet Mask, Boipelo enjoys outdoor activities and is enthusiastic to participate in almost anything that gets her adrenaline pumping.
