August is Women’s month here in South Africa. Yesterday, we celebrated Women’s Day  in honour of all the strong women, who in 1956, marched on the Union Buildings in Pretoria for their rights and the rights of all the mothers, daughters, sisters, aunts, teachers, doctors, surgeons, lawyers, homemakers etc. still to come.

It could not have been easy for these women. Under the political regime back then, protesting against the unfairness they faced could have easily lead to their deaths. But in the midst of fear and danger, they found the courage to speak up for what they believed in and told their story.

I had the remarkable honour and privilege to share my story and be featured in the Empowerment Edition of  Nabalo Lifestyle Magazine  published a few days ago. How fitting in light of how significant the month of August is for all the women of SA!

“I hope this edition will help you build confidence and strength to set goals and fulfil your potential.” – Iris Nabalo

My article features on page 71 of this inspiring magazine. I am truly honoured to have found a platform that allows me to stand in my light, unashamedly and tell my story…All glory to the Man above!

A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle. I hope my story inspires some of you to spread your own light!
