Consul General Tulelo hails from Kimberley in the Northern Cape province of South Africa. She started her schooling in Kimberley and graduated from grade 12 in Kimberley.
She had her political awakening during her high school years, when she questioned the payment of examination fees by Grade 12 learners, although it was evident from her community that most of the parents could not afford the money required.
She continued her studies at Wits University where she majored in Politics and Sociology and was elected as President of the Student Body in 1999-2001.
She joined the Department of International Relations and Cooperation in November 2011 and was heading the Youth and Gender Chief Directorate, until she took up her responsibility as Head of Mission in Chicago on 21 July 2012.
