I am a Student Journey Mentor. I am Benita Swart, a passionate, energetic and motivated individual, with 15 years of experience working with students and youth. I am a mother, an educationist, a Student Mentor, and an accredited Enneagram Practitioner and Prosci Change Management practitioner. I am also an expert Brand Strategist and an holistic health enthusiast and avid traveler.
I hold a Master’s in Business Leadership and a Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education, an Honors in Business Management and Degree in Marketing and Communication.
I recently conducted formal academic research regarding Generation Z aged 16 – 25 regarding their student journey and gained formal insights into their challenges and how I can support students.
I have a passion to guide learners in their study pathways and career choices, to changing mindsets to become resilient, support students to find their purpose, incorporate their meaningful aspirations into their student journey, learn better and faster, complete their qualifications, and help prepare for and build their future careers and pursue purposeful adventures along their journey.
The Enneagram Personality Type Assessment focuses on: self-awareness, self-reflection, motivations, emotional intelligence and resilience. It can benefit the youth to learn how to build on their current strengths, change some negative habits and gain a new mindset and new purposeful strategies to grow. We will utilises the Edgar Shein’s Career Anchor assessment to understand the motivations behind individual work fulfillment, explore study pathways, and prepare for a future career.

“Benita started guiding me when I was a student and continued until now as a functioning adult. Her guidance got helped me achieve more than I have ever imagined. She gave me the confidence to be able to achieve more in my working capacity since starting my 1st job and moved on to receiving various promotions. She helped give me clarity on my journey to adulting, and acceptance in terms of my orientation within society. I have learned how to love myself the most, accept that life is a wonderful journey that can only be fulfilled by oneself, and that it is my own responsibility to achieve the dreams that I want. I have learned that utilizing my people skills to unlock certain traits in people that will not only benefit me, but also the people around me. I have learned that there is nothing but myself that is stopping me from being who I want to be. Benita is the guiding star that helped me pivot my potential to achieve more than I had ever thought. “
