I would start my introduction with Maya Angelou: “I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.”
I am a Flourish host. I offer both Antenatal and Postnatal classes and the community mobiliser at Sikunye. I am so passionate in supporting mothers; it is not easy as it looks but that’s how I want to be remembered in every meeting I have with mothers. I started 2023 with a great experience of hosting teen moms and the love I have for them its immeasurable.
As a mother myself I think it’s a responsibility of every mom to share love and support to those in need. To be a Mamandla Fellow, I want to continue learning and gaining more wisdom from other women to make a different in my community. I want to share many universal experiences and, most importantly, to make every woman to rise by lifting each other.
