Just as we are heading towards the end of the women’s month, Metro FM host and motivational speaker Criselda Kananda emphasized the importance of loving ourselves as women.
The popular radio DJ has told her story many times but it is always inspiring whenever she shares it again and gives hope to those who have lost it.
Criselda was speaking at the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife Phenomenal Women lunch at Elangeni Hotel in Durban this week.
She emphazied the importance of women learning to believe that they are beautiful without having to depend on it being told to them by men.
“Through it all, I picked myself up and I became a woman who told myself how beautiful I am, I was no longer looking for it from men. Be that woman who knows who she is, don’t be comparative but have your own goals,” she said.
Women were told to celebrate their beauty and be proud of who they are. “Be that woman who would look back and say 'I am the best and have done the best,' make the devil shiver. I Share this because I want you to be the person you should be, if life gives you lemons, go find a recipe and make lemonade,” added Criselda.
She closed by telling people to look out for her book that she is currently working on.
