I’m a Cape Town lady since day one. I spent most of my childhood in Namibia with my Father, older brother and Grandparents. I am the youngest of 4 children and also the only girl. Fashion didn’t exist for me growing up, my wardrobe consisted of my brothers hand me downs. Growing up in the Northern Suburbs was not so easy. Primary school was probably the worst years of my life. I was constantly teased for being overweight. We made the great trek to the southern suburbs when my mom remarried, that day I got the gift of a second dad and 2 older brothers.
I’m an introvert on most days, but when needed I can pull out my extrovert card. I’m not the most affectionate person, but I show my love for others in the things I do for them. I have no idea how to ride a bicycle but would love to learn one day. I fully believe in woman empowerment and I want to be a part of helping every woman learn how to love themselves. It hurts me to hear another female put herself down. I don’t conform to what society sees as “ethical” because I don’t want to fit in, ever!
Growing up I was constantly on fad diets from the age of 13, trying my utmost best to fit in with the cool kids. It wasn’t until my 21st birthday when I decided to make a change for the better.
Stay tuned to next week’s blog post where I share my journey in becoming a confident woman.
