Lebogang Motsilenyane
Lebogang Motsilenyane (21) joined Choppies Superstores at the Northgate mall when it first opened in November 2014. She works as a parcel counter assistant, a job she says she enjoys so much as she gets to deal with people on a day to day basis. This Moshupa-born young woman however does not intend to spend the rest of her life working for Choppies. She in fact says she intends to go for further studies soon where she will enrol for a catering course. Upon completion she intends to open her own catering business. Motsilenyane says in her spare time she enjoys reading, cleaning and going to church.

The 20 years old mans the Choppies Block 5 parcel counter with a smile every day. She is one of the few people living with disabilities working for the store.  She has been with the store since it opened its doors to the public in 2012. According to Phiri, she enjoys her job so much more so that it involves safe keeping customers parcels and dealing with people directly.
