My name is Brown Phasha.

I am a designer. I was born on 11 June, 1983 in Polokwane, Limpopo, South Africa. I live in Tzaneen, Limpopo, South Africa. I haven’t told any stories. I joined Cowbird on February 7, 2014.

My name is Lesiba Brown Phasha and I am 30 Years old. I grew up in a rural village called Mafefe, where many resources such as electricity, water, transport were not easily accessible. Being raised by my grandparents weren’t easy, because we were a big family living under one roof with hardly any income. We had to rely on planting our own crops and whatever money my dad could send home. Even thou we lived in harsh circumstances my grandparents brought stability and unity to my family. They taught me respect, discipline and to work hard.

For me education was the only weapon I had to make a success, and I was most fortunate to succeed under these circumstances. I managed to matriculate and then went to Pretoria for further studies. I enrolled at TUT (Pretoria Technicon) where I did a diploma in Architectural Technology. I finished my Diploma in record time, even though it was a tough course, because I felt so passionate about architecture.

The hardships I endured during my up-bringing could not limit my dreams of becoming a successful architect. I was fortunate to get an internship as a technician/draughtsman at Akabed Architects in Ermelo and was involved in residential house designs under the mentorship of Piet van der Walt. Then I joined Mwelase Architects in 2009 as Architectural Technologist. I received mentorship from Sefako Mazibuko for one and a half years. I moved back home in June 2010, because of my father’s health, where I joined Ichtus Studio Architects as an Architectural Technologist, and is still presently working under the mentorship of Koos Visser.

Supreme imagination is what makes the creative artist now, just as it made one then and imagination is what will make the needed designer for industry now – Frank Lloyed Wright.
