Ongezo Lumka Jack

My name is Ongezo Lumka Jack, I am 28 years old. I was born and raised in Cape Town.

Southern Sun Waterfront - Candidate: Ongezo Lumka
I went to primary and high school in Khayelitsha, then I went to Cape Peninsula University of Cape Town (CPUT) for my tertiary education, there I studied Information Technology, I did my first and second year but I could not finish my third year because of lack of funding and I was not sure if it was something I really wanted to do.

I started working for Tsogo Sun as a waiter in 2015, at Sun Square Gardens. I then went to work at the Southern Sun The Cullinan in 2017, I now work at the Southern Sun Waterfront as a Bartender.

Taking part in this 2019 Distell Inter Hotel Challenge competition as a Wine Steward is both humbling and an exiting opportunity for me because a competition like this will hopefully open a lot of doors for me, I am looking forward to the excitement and learning opportunity as I am a bubbly person who is eager to learn. I am prepared to put in the time and effort as I want to go very far with this competition hopefully win the prize.
