My name is Justine Gershman, and I am a 31 years old, after graduating the AAA School of Advertising with a BA in Copywriting and electives in Visual Communications and Marketing, I took up a position at Hello Computer, before deciding to move back to London. Once in London I acquired a role working for media house Whyte Richardson, after a few short months I realised I was best suited too Cape Town and moved back to begin a career and start to build a life for myself.
I thrive on new experiences and meeting new people, often placing myself outside of my comfort zone in order to learn more about the people around me as well as myself. I find that I am able to talk to anybody and have a broad general knowledge, and street sense which enables me to take part in almost any conversation. I am a very lively, outgoing person and I am very capable of getting things done.
Growing up in and attending school in the heart of London, I have found that over my working career I have been able to adapt to the environment and see success whether it be Head of Sales for Twitter East Africa or my most recent position within Nexus Property Group as digital marketing and social media manager.. I love to apply a process to my work, which is why I have enjoyed many roles throughout my working career I am the person who my friends call when they need an admin errand run or a Telkom bill disputed or even a cake ordered last minute – having grown up in a cosmopolitan city such as London, I find that the energy I grew up with continues to fuel the feeling that if I need to do something I can do it and I will achieve it.
