Candice Mama’s story has been listened to by the Dalai Lama.
She is one of Vogue Magazine’s top 33 most inspiring women in the world alongside Nicole Kidman, Michelle Obama, Malala.
She was named in the Top 20 African Women by the African Union and United Nations celebrating women who have contributed to building peace in Africa presented by UN Secretary-General António Guterres and Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg.
In 2020 as the United Nations celebrated 75 years they chose 75 people to celebrate and honor and Candice was chosen as one of the #UN75 People; 75 Stories. Her story was the base of the acclaimed documentary It’s A Pleasure to Meet You featuring her and Siyah Mgoduka which was Showcased at the Louis Vuitton Foundation.
In 2017 Candice was presented with the Human Beacon of Dignity Award in New York (Colombia University) presented by Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Evelin Lindner for her contribution in the field of forgiveness and reconciliation.
Her work in forgiveness, reconciliation, and trauma began after her story of forgiving the apartheid assassin and her father’s murderer, Eugene De Kock, made international news. She was chosen to lead the UN-backed initiative Women Power in South Africa (making her the youngest member to hold the position). Candice is making her mark in the humanitarian field all before the age of thirty.
