Sinomtha Gede

I was born and raised in the city of East London. I am currently doing my 3rd year in PR Management. I wish to be a Body Positivity activist, motivational and inspirational speaker for young women and young girls who struggle with low self- esteem. We are pressured on a daily basis to conform to societies standards of beauty ignoring the inevitable fact that we are all literally created differently and that no one person is the same! Too many women allow their self-worth be determined in the eyes of others. The world will always beat and bring us down to a point where one lives in shame, constantly fearing the useless opinions of others. If we can all live a shame free life in-spite of a society that tells you because you are “different” you do not deserve to. We can reach our full potential and do amazing things!

The following TED talk is Sinomtha Gede’s favourite because:

This TEDx Talk speaks volumes of what I essentially mean in my bio. There are so many different levels one has to overcome to reach their full potential with many obstacles in the way of who we are.
