Sihle Ngcobo

Nickname: 'Mapholoba'

Architect, Entrepreneur, Philanthropist Christian


Currently resides in: KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Born in Durban South Africa

I was born and raised in Durban, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. I was raised by a single mother, who was a domestic worker. Seeing my mother struggle to provide for us, I made up my mind I was going to be something big in life and I will in return make all her dreams come true. That meant I had to work extra hard at school to get good grades, which I did. This defines who I am today.

I have since, I was a very young boy been always interested in design of; cars, buildings, gadgets, furniture, etc; hence I studies Architecture. At graduating from University I developed a passion for architecture and entrepreneurship, i then opened my own Architectural Practice, I have been at it ever since. I have designed a number of interesting building in and outside South Africa. I believe Architects are specially gifted to see what everyone doesn't see, they are gifted to visualise the future and shape it.

My mind just cannot lie dormant, I am constantly coming up with ideas, design ideas, business ideas and development ideas. I am a dreamer. I have big dreams for my future and I work everyday towards achieving those dreams. I am closer today to the realisation of my dreams then I was yesterday.

My other passion and calling in life is to help the poor. I have a dream of creating the largest scholarship fund the world has ever seen to give less privilege children all across the world free education. I want to build schools, Universities where we will provide quality education for free to bright minds in with disadvantaged backgrounds. I believe strongly in education and its power alleviate poverty. Education is the only way to bring someone out of poverty.

In 2007 I had an amazing encounter, I accepted Jesus Christ into my life to be my personal Lord and saviour and my life has never been the same ever since. He brought joy into my life, He brought new ideas, new dreams, bigger dreams and most of all He brought me the gift of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is my secret competitive advantage. For He shows me what is yet to come.

I love family! I love people, I love meeting different people. I love to travel and find out about other races and cultures. I love to share the message about Jesus Christ with others too.
