Municipal Woman’s Month Campaign – My Inspirational Woman

The month of August is dedicated to celebrating women all over the world and at the George Municipality we would like to celebrate the phenomenal women who are an inspiration to their colleagues.

This week we celebrate Ms. Ishenique Felix, nominated by Megan Hopewell, Prosecutor at the George Municipality.

I’d like to nominate Ms. Ishenique Felix, Legal Advisor and Prosecutor employed under the Legal and Compliance Department.

I met Ms. Felix 3 months ago when I started my position as prosecutor at the Municipal Court. She welcomed me with open arms, and we instantly became not only good colleagues, but also good friends. She was very patient while teaching me the in’s and out’s of my new position and took time out of her busy schedule to assist me however she could.

Ishenique is a resilient yet soft woman with a strong faith and resolute morals and values. Despite always being a paragon of professionalism, she is compassionate; always approachable, kind, and helpful. She is dependable, trustworthy, and hardworking, always doing more for the institution than what is expected of her. Her presence in my work- and personal life brings me great comfort and I am blessed and privileged to have her as both a colleague and friend.

– Megan Hopewell, Prosecutor at the George Municipality.

Deadline for the next Nominee: Nominate your Inspirational Female Colleague for next week by Wednesday 16 August.

There is something so special about a woman who dominates in a man’s world. It takes a certain grace, strength, intelligence, fearlessness and the nerve to never take no as an answer- Rihanna
