From activism, curatorship and public speaking we wonder what @Jadore_Thembi cannot do.

The beauty entrepreneur always makes you feel like you are part of her journey sharing pictures of her daily outfits and thoughts of being a contestant on the show.
If you are looking for the influencer who you can relate to then digital Copywriter and entrepreneur @yoliswa_mqoco is your person. Yoliswa is not afraid to share her truth and is known for openly engaging with her followers, responding to comments and DMs. Her warm heart and openness about body insecurities and personal struggles she has faced makes one feel like they are not alone.
The body positivity influencer also highlights biases that she has experienced from people and the fashion industry. In an interview with Timeslive she shared how the “the biggest bully in my life has always been the SA fashion industry”.
