MAGDA My Journey
by Magda Wierzycka
This powerful and inspirational memoir reminds one of the saying “If you stand for a reason be prepared to stand alone like a tree, and if you fall on the ground, fall like a seed that grows back to fight again.” For this is what Magda Wierzycka did. A teenage refuge from communist Poland to becoming one of the richest women in South Africa, she stood for what she believed in, fighting corruption in business and government whilst developing her own business as well as being a wife and mother. Not one to let age or gender discourage her, but rather to work harder to prove that as a woman she can also succeed, Magda inspires others to fight for what they believe in.
An engrossing read that also exposes corruption in today’s South Africa and gives the reader a good insight into the financial world.
