Women of Instagram : Winning on the outside, but weeping on the inside.

Like a lot of women in our generation, I wake up each morning and refresh my social media feeds to get an update on the world. Mostly it’s stuff that I don’t really need to know or about people I’m not so close to. But I find these people and their lives interesting anyway. Often I end up scrolling mindlessly, not only first thing after waking up or falling asleep but also countless times in between…. and you know what, it’s exhausting.

Raising her away from the land I was raised in has brought about its own set of challenges.

It involved a great deal of bravery, a trusting heart, money I wasn’t sure I had, faith the size of a mustard seed  and a spirit of adventure.

How women triumph when the law fails them – Rebels with a cause

As a South African Indian girl born and raised in Durban, I can say that for the most part I have lived a sheltered and somewhat privileged life… I say privileged because even if there was a life out there that I did not know about, I was so sheltered and naive that it didn’t bother me.

Almost every South African woman has a story of struggle

There are different shades of South African women. From caramel, to yellow bone, to peach and beige to brown to melanin envy dark and then 50 shades in between. All of these women are truly beautiful, with a sassy spirit that is required to overcome their back story of struggle and abomination.
