Raising the Flag for all thick curvaceous Divas out there "If I can do it so can you"


I’m Nyameka Ntaba from Sebokeng in the Vaal. My biggest achievement for this year was being on stage and doing what I love, which is poetry and modelling. I got a chance of a lifetime to recite my poem at the Victory Theatre in Johannesburg on Woman’s Month. I was also a show-stopper when I modelled at the State Theatre in Tshwane recently. People thought I couldn’t do it because of my weight, but I proved them wrong. I’d like to encourage young women to follow their dreams and stop caring about what other people think. People will call you names and label you, but it’s up to you to make a success of your life. I’m comfortable in my own skin and proud to be who I am. I’ll be on stage again on 26 October modelling in Pretoria. It’s amazing what you can achieve with hardwork, patience, determination and ambition. I’m flying the flag for all the curvaceous ladies out there. If I can do it, so can you.

Find Love!
