Diary of a Single Varsity Girl

Going to varsity had been my dream since I was a little girl, I would fantasize about the freedom, fun, craziness, friends and of course, someone I was going to call 'bae'! It's funny how movies create images of that 'perfect guy' who bumps into you in a corridor and next thing, you're in love and live happily ever after. Well, that's what I thought would happen to me. I was going to meet my perfect guy and together, we'd be that perfect, sweet couple everyone admires. To tell the truth, I didn't think of anything to do with school work…

Bae’d up

So this year Valentine's Day thought it would play a not-so-funny trick on me. I got derailed from my usual movie for one plans to plans for two. Yes the universe deliberated and decided that after my long standing tradition of celebrating this day as a singleton it was time i had someone to brag about other than my great friends. I always thought i would marvel at this day and dance in the rain over it but, i must say, I am a little torn. This moment is bitter sweet for me. Humor me for a second and let…

Blurred Lines: My theory on love

I don't really remember when or how we first met, all I know is that he was my housemate's friend. He would drop by every now and then and say hi, drop a pick-up line or two, then be on his way. To be honest, I never took the pick-up lines seriously, I just thought he was my housemate's funny friend and they seemed cute together. I remember him asking me one thing though: "Chico, when are we gonna be friends, you're always in that room of yours glaring at your laptop, trust me I am just as interesting, if…

Up for the challenge, down for the dare!

Prowlmag_daretodare challenge I woke up one morning and decided i did not want to be just another oxygen inhaling earth inhabitant. My college experience had to amount to more than just good grades and a clean record. The first step towards that was to surround myself with the people who encouraged me to be the best version of me that i could be. Shout out to my roommate from second year (among others) who had to sit through my countless one-sided  life altering deep and meaningful conversations about nothing and everything. The thing that they never tell you though when…

CHASING “AS I AM”

I often would lounge on my couch and ask myself ‘how many shades of black are there in the world? How can I be black when I don’t compare to the colour of the Kango pot in my ambuya’s kitchen?’ I have met my share of black women –petite, curvaceous, smart and bilingual .Looking out to the world at the vastness of black women in my city-I hated being described as a shade of black when I assumed that I was brown (according to the colour codes my pre-school teacher gave me) and I hated being called a ‘coconut too’…

CHASING IN STILETTOS: CHIDO MHLANGA

It was an honour to be nominated to feature in  the remarkable young women platform. I greatly appreciate the sentiment. I am as crazy about girl power as the next girl. Being young at twenty one I am always finding ways to leverage all that I learn and discover so that I can grow and become like those who inspire me. Whilst growing up had a passion for fashion and a great desire to be in the medical  field so  I figured  why not do both. In 2013  I got accepted into pharmacy at KwaZulu natal university and I also…

Drama is Inevitable ,But Smiling is Optional

After i spoke at the young women church seminar recently on ' Bold Women Smile ',a beautiful young woman raised her hand  and said ," Oh,Ancy you very BLESSED ! You are so strong and you know what you want ! I wish i could be bold and smile when drama knocks on my door !you really are amazing and bold ". I couldn't help laughing and with my candy dripping smile I told the darling girl that i didn't have my life in order .There was a lot of band aids where bullets had pierced and at one time…
