IT is important for women to know who they are and what they stand for.

This was said during a women­’s high tea, hosted by Londiwe Shangase, in Lincoln Meade under the theme “I am”.

Shangase invited women to attend the event for empowerment and motivation and plans to continue hosting them. Topics discussed ranged from beauty regimes to the must-have fashion items, sex and how to stay motivated.

“I have always had a passion to empower young black women because I believe ordinary women can do extraordinary things. All we need is empowerment, encouragement and motivation. Instead of fighting one another we need to stand united. The event was also a networking platform for women from all walks of life. The turnout was great and I look forward to hosting more on a quarterly basis.”

“Knowing who you are means you don’t have to be a replica of someone else. You must focus on your strengths and work on yourself.

“It is imperative for every woman to do their own ‘swot’ [strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats] once in a while to improve their lives.

“If you know who you are it is not easy for people to persuade you to do something you do not like, and you will not be easily influenced by your surroundings. It also helps to stay grounded and follow your own path,” said Shangase.
