How does one describe Dot Bekker, other than eccentric? She always has trouble describing herself as she says "I do many things, only some of them well, I keep learning new and exiting things that I want to try'.
For starters she is an intrepid and adventurous traveller, Business Coach and Entrepreneur Strategist, she creates websites and consults on social media, she is a speaker and presenter and has been interviewed by people worldwide, she is also an author and philanthropist having a small non-profit for the education of high achieving girls into high school (www.kusasa.africa).
