About Tanja Wielsma

Owner Pretoria East


“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away” – Pablo Picasso
A quote Tanja lives by!

Working with people is her God-given purpose.

As a student, Tanja did everything from waitressing, promotional jobs, working as a shop assistant in retail and jewelry stores, to being a volunteer at several special needs schools, children’s homes, and charities. She quickly learnt that she really enjoyed working with people.

She completed her degree in Information Science at the University of Pretoria. The overwhelming need to travel and her home language being German, led her to join the aviation industry as an International Flight Attendant. It was during these years that she was introduced to different style and image concepts and courses, self-care, first impressions, confidence, communication skills, resilience, and etiquette across multiple cultures.

The last 17 years she has worked in the Pharmaceutical Industry as a Sales Representative, Key Accounts Manager and Product Specialist.

She has had the opportunity to take part in sales and marketing training, many leadership, developmental and coaching programs, as well as multiple relationship, communication and personality styles workshops.

She comes from a family of strong women and men and as a child, she was fortunate to be told that she can do anything she sets her mind to and that she is worthy and enough – something every child should hear and be reminded of often.

She believes every person should shine bright and spread their sparkle. She works hard to instill these strengths and qualities in her 6-year-old daughter.

Supported by her husband, and daughter she embraces this Girl-School journey and she would love to use what she has learnt over many years and form part of your village. A village that will raise confident, strong, self-loving, kind, and inspiring young women. Women that will lead their generation!

She looks forward to meeting your daughter.
