Wendy Parkies

Nickname: 'Wendy'

Creative Strategist/ Social Entrepreneur


Currently resides in: Gauteng, South Africa

Born in Durban South Africa

TV Production and CSI intiatives are my life.

I love the idea of creating a show from start to finish that you present to the world, and it lives in the digital space forever. Knowing that I am making a difference to someone somewhere is my wheelhouse.

I have Video Production experience from UKZN and TV Broadcast experience from Birthmark.
Both companies have taught me skills that I would never trade for anything in the world.

Educating black girls and giving homes to orphans is what is next in the cards for me. I love children and I love the look on their faces when you do something for them when you owe them nothing. My next journey in life is to build orphanages. In my home city of KZN and the city that is currently home to me - JHB.

My passions are everything to me and they are all I live my life by. I believe in hard work, commitment and following ones passions, the rest will fall into place.
