Meet a woman who brought light to a male dominated industry

Aashiqa Essop, a mother of three, was on Friday named the top student of the Small Business Academy of the University Of Stellenbosch Business School. Of the 20 graduates, Essop received the highest mark overall.

Success was not brought to her on a silver platter; she abandoned her dream of becoming a lawyer due to lack of funds.

She is today the owner of the automotive electronic workshop Magic Worx which specializes in alarm repairs and installations, electronic fault finding and diagnostics, key cutting, as well as repairs to remotes and electronic windows.
