KONA BROWN – An earnest blogger (www.konabrown.co.za), enthusiastic exerciser, persistent prayer, fashion fanatic and closet artist, Kona Brown is your typical mom and wife next door. She is at her happiest when she has opportunities to inspire other women. She majored in Development Studies and Political Science at the University of Johannesburg (then RAU). After 7 years in banking as a business analyst, Kona left the corporate world to start a family. Her efforts in specifically assisting orphaned and vulnerable children played a major part in Kona being crowned Mrs United Nation SA 2012 and Mrs UN International for 2013.
As the sister and manager of popular platinum selling recording artist, Elvis Blue, Kona directs upwards of 100 gigs per year for Elvis, all the while juggling the school run and the dynamic home life of her husband and 2 sons.
Wanda Bam chats to Kona on the topics in the book, in the Cape Pulpit programme, Leef.
