HONORARY MINNIESTAR AWARDS
Dedicating Honorary MinnieStar Awards to gifted kids, tweens and teens that contribute to the spheres that they thrive in.
SOUTH AFRICA'S 13 YEAR OLD MATHEMATICAL GENUIS
It was in 2018 that then 10 year old prodigy was discovered by the media and news outlets after a local policeman had released footage of Zwane solving complex arithmetic equations "faster than a calculator", as reported by Pulse. He has stated that he one day wishes to become a pilot and it is reported that in 2018 Zwane was making - on average - R200 a day for working on mathematical equations, while also challenging his mental capacity and capabilities. It is a great honour to dedicate the Honorary MinnieStar Award to the nation's mathematical whizz, Sibahle Zwane.
