Communications Co-Ordinator, Morongoa B. Mosetlhi
Morongoa Basadi Mosetlhi, affectionately known as Moe, joined Maru-a-Pula School as Communications Co-Ordinator in January 2017. Her interest in the arts comes from her maternal grandmother, who was a radio presenter for RB1 in the 90s and made pottery as a hobby. From an early age, her first love was writing but, having parents who are bankers, she chose to study for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) professional qualification at the Botswana Accountancy College. During that time, she co-founded Art of the Soul Organization, a non-profit organization aimed at engaging youth through the arts. She also gained extensive experience as a Financial Accountant, Tax & Management Consultant.
Morongoa’s artistic career began in 2009 when she was cast for the local TV drama Re Bina Mmogo. It has grown extensively to include Aldo Brincat’s Passion Play, the Maitisong Festival, Gaborone Music and Culture Week (GIMC), and Maun International Arts Festival. Behind the stage, she has assisted in the management, planning and production of shows for various artists. She is a featured poet with Badisha Poetry X-Change and on South African Jazz musician Thuto Motsemme’s My Dream.
Through her work with MaP and Maitisong, Morongoa has enjoyed widespread and invaluable exposure to the other side of the arts. She believes in living a life that is an inspiration to others. She hopes to, one day, use the collective experience gained over the years to make a real contribution to the local arts industry. In addition, she would like to visit a Tibetan Monastery and live to see Africa become a united and stable community.
