   . @Zapiro cuts to the heart of #Xenophobia. SA doesnt have a monopoly on mass hysteria,it feeds on the dark side of human nature everywhere - but true leadership isn't populism, it requires being able to tell people what they DONT want to hear, in such a captivating way that they cant do anything BUT relate.We need someone who can cut through the noise,someone who compels even the most inflamed tempers to reason. #Mandela #Gandhi #Tutu
 Tonight's dress for @SSBoots is a case of business in the front & Boot(y) Party in the back  #JustCallMeKimK #SSRugby #TodayImWearing @countryroad @woolworths_sa 8pm #SS1 @supersporttv  Preach @slikouronlife ! #Xenophobia #MoreZenLessPhobia

Yesterday, I blogged about how Miss SA (and pageants in general) attract our attention to causes we might otherwise never have heard of. Today I’d like to see if I can do the same thing.

Watching the Miss SA pageant last night was almost as much fun with my sister’s running commentary, as it was on Twitter.

Coming from a female-headed household, raised and inspired by her gran and her mom (who overcame drug addiction) and owning, overcoming and utilising the challenges a less-than-glamourous start to life posed. The darling…

Welcome to my super sexy revamped new blog! Thank you Duan, for making it happen. Sho, what a wild ride the last month has been. LOTS of change. #TopStories in, Dagbreek out. One thing hasn’t changed, I STILL strongly believe in building bridges, way more than walls. Seems like a no-brainer, ne?

What was the one lasting lesson I learnt on our recent ski trip? Just how exhilarating, rewarding and important it is to keep learning. It’s hard. At school and in any tertiary learning experience, every year presents new lessons, growth and change. It keeps you humble, and it gets you learning-fit. But then you leave that rhythm behind and the risk of falling into all kinds of comfort zones is EVERYWHERE….
