July’s Cover Of Destiny Connect Magazine Is This Fashionista Who Is A 52-Year-Old Professor


For July 2018, Destiny Connect Magazine shines the spotlight on Professor Mamokgethi Phakeng who has a passion for Math Education and fashionable outfits.

Earlier in the year, the 51-year-old was appointed as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cape Town (UCT). In a statement, she said: “I wasn’t sure if UCT was ready for me. I’m a bit young and my earrings are too big – I’m too colourful!”.

She is uncompromising about her style and self-expression, refusing to conform either intellectually or in terms of fashion.

From her Instagram page @FabAcademic, you can tell how much she loves to dress up, live life while making giant strides professionally.

She proves that you can mix you love for fashion with accomplishing goals.
