    My squad is very small but as the saying goes quality is better than quantity, we are 3, we work together and we are more like sisters than colleagues or friends, we can share the most confidential secrets with each other and we can count on each other for anything, this lock down has ruined our plans for a girls night so I really miss spending time with them just to relax and de-stress, theses girls are my best friends and my support structure and my #glowgetter squad

    Hi yall,

    A queen thats saving a township. And not all heros wear capes.

    I know this is cleche’ , but my mother is my whole glow getter squad.

    Queens deserve recognition, and she surely is a queen.

    My mother has been unemployed numerous times, bounced off and onto her feet, got divorced, raised my brother as a single parent and to top it all off started her own non profit organisarion “Skyes Wooden Spoon” to feed the needy children and people in a small township nick named “Smarty Town” in Eastridge Mitchells Plain.
    And shes still standing !

    Skyes wooden spoon has been run soley by my mother who has originally been funding the scheme from her own pockets and home groceries..

    My moms motto is that she would never feed anyone items she wouldbt feed her own children. Everything is quality and prepared fresh.

    This idea of hers started when my little brother came home with his friends from outside and he would tell her that they are hungry and he would make them a slice of bread.

    Soon it became a routine that they would wash their hands and come and eat at my moms home lunch times.

    Then it turned into my mom making the kids party packets for my brothers birthday and then things just grew from there.

    My mom provides two/ three meals a week to the kids in Smarty Town and even to adults as well.

    She was ill one day and explained to her doctor that she was so sad she couldnt cook for the kids that day and the doctor was then interested in her cause.

    Thereafter my mom ran around finding the kids birth certificates, and details to get them all listed for the medical care with this private doctor. And to this day I would say even that doctor has a great heart. He was willing to provide the kids with the basic health care and emergency visits for when they get sick at no cost to their parents!

    Soon after , my brother Skyler got involved with soccer. And some of the soccer kids belonged to a childrens home. My mother got involved with the childrens home as well and she even got them listed with the doctor too.

    She is a whole team. A glow team. And shes a brand new grandmother to my nephew.

    Even if I dont win, I know my mom is winning at life and God will bless her for all the help she is providing these kids

    She doesnt know i posted this …

    Well my glow getter squad is quite amazing.. We are all different with different aspirations and goals but the one thing we have in common is the love and support we have for one another. I am mother, wife, employee and student and getting through daily things can be challenging but the support i recieve from my girls even if its a tag in a funny post or a msg on whatsapp it helps me get through difficult times. Danielle Wood WOW is all i can say.. The glue that holds us all together one of the most caring, kindest people i know who will give her last so that someone else can have. Lushane Beeton.. Half way across the world teaching English in China how we miss her spontaneity and the craze times we always have with her. Laura September the quiet one amongst us all.. Sweet soul who goes for what she believes in PLUS takes the most amazing photos lol. Candice Wood.. My cousin and also a good friend someone who we can all depend on to be more responsible lol always giving like its going out of fashion and being fashionable at the same time! Whitley Wood a pure inspiration to us all.. Hard worker go getter fitness freak and amazing mom your strength is really something i aspire to. There is no better squad than the one i have.. I am blessed beyond compare.. Wouldn trade them for the world!!! #glowgettersquad #rubybox

    My #glowgettersquad definitely has to be Sandy, my best friend, my 2 sisters, Linda and Vuyolwethu, these ladies have played a mojor role in supporting me and my big decision to resign from employment to register for a full time studies! The past year has not been easy, but knowing that I have a great support system in them means the world to me. At my age, taking this kind of decision came with it’s downsides, like not being able to afford certain things , like i used to. My #glowgettersquad has made my journey so much easier, i know i can rely on them! I love these girls! My win is our win!!

    My #GlowGetterSquad is a team of awesome who have in trying times, regardless of the circumstances we are facing been cooking up a storm for almost 300 to 400 people 6 days a week and they all belong to a NPO called the Callas Foundation. We all come from different backgrounds but we put all that aside and GLOW together to make our community better and to help those less fortunate. They are a bunch of amazing woman and I am honoured to be part of that #GlowGetterSquad

    • Christlyn Pillay says:

      My #GlowGetterSquad consists of 3 incredible women who I’ve grown up with, they’ve been my best friends since childhood and has been there for me during my hardest battles.
      Our sisterhood consists of love, support and encouragement especially because we all come from different cultures and backgrounds.
      Zuzile, June Rose & Kim are such hardworking and independent women, I’m truly grateful to have a #GlowGetterSquad that understands me and also inspires other women to work hard to accomplish their dreams!
      Love you girlfriends! xoxo

They’ve been there for me through many ups and downs in my life. I have find sisters in them. We always encourage each other to do better in all areas of our lives. One of these ladies is actually my department head, she’s such a wonderful person, she gives us guidance career wise and in our private lives. So blessed to work with such wonderful souls, memories I share with these ladies are awesome. The kind of support we gives each other is amazing. I’m so proud to have lovely friends like them in my life. I love them so much.

        • maphuzla says:

          My #glowgettersquad is my friends and sister, they are always around when I need and they always encourage me to do better, I wouldn’t have made it if it wasn’t for my sisters

        • Juliet Rammutla says:

          my favourite person is my sister Portia , she understands me on every level and we share everything with each other. She isn’t the most open of people but when something is bothering her she comes to me and tells me everything.
          I am going through a tough time right now but she helps me to forget . We have the same sense of humour, same sense of adventure and have been through the same experiences. My phone is full of photos and videos of her doing crazy things, and then we can have a deep meaningful conversation about life and it makes me feel needed and valuable. She is my best friend and I would do anything for her, she shows me how to be strong and how to live a full life even though we are both hurting on the inside and she always give great advice.

    • portiaseopa says:

      My #GlowGettersquad is my kids,siblings, friends and parents who have made sure that I’m not alone during the loss of my husband due to being shot and son who was hit by a car in a consecutive years. Was not easy but because of them I managed. I’m privileged to have them in my life

      • Ayanda says:

        Most of the Women in my life are my glow getters. My daughter is my number 1 cheerleader. She believes in me even on days where I myself dont believe in me. My sisters always keep me sane and focused. I have the ladies from my church that embrace my personality. I have a few sister/friends that want to see me succeed financially, they support me emotionally and physically. All these women understand how I feel like to balance my life. They let me be, I dont feel pressured to be a fake around them. One minute I’d be reading and quoting a bible scripture, next minute I’d be dancing up a storm at a club. Sometimes I’d be cooking up and baking in my home over a glass of wine. They embrace all this about me.

        • mahlatsimahasha says:

        • lerato.chantel12 says:

          My #GlowGetterSquad has to be my Mom, My sister Gloria and also my daughter. My mom has been there for me through thick and thin. I remember when It was time for me to give birth and I was also busy with my exams as well, she stood strong for me and for that, I thank her. My sister Gloria is a God sent. She came into my life and made the biggest difference ever and made see how important it is to have a suster that supports you all the way. I had no money this year January when I was returning back to campus, and also had no food. I didn’t know what I was going to do or where I was going to eat, but she came through for me and she made sure that I never went hungry 😊. As for my daughter, she’s my biggest motivator, the reason why I always fall and stand very quickly, dust off myself and continue grinding… She taught me to be content with everything and to stand strong, firm and work hard. I love you all guys. #rubybox

          • debbierakumakoe says:

            I’m blessed with a queen for a mother, two loving sisters and two beautiful daughters, they are my #GlowGetterSquad. My mother has alway been in my corner cheering me on the be the best version of myself. I’m the eldest and she look up to me guide my siblings. In doing so she understands that she has to mold me to achieve that, to create that domino effect. ❤️My sisters are phenomenal women in their own right, they look up to me and support my hopes and dreams. I can call on them anytime and when they can they’ll bail me out(even though they’re younger) They have my best interests at heart and the idea that if they can help me achieve today, they can too tomorrow, if not better. This is encouraging and motivation for me to do my best, so that they can grow too.💕 My daughters are evolving into extraordinary women. They have over the years become my friends too. They came to know and understand me and what I am about. They have 1st hand experience of what I would like to achieve. They are very influential and push me to do better for myself (knowing they too will benefit) 😉I am still renting and just the other day they sat me down with pictures and options of a bigger, better and safer place. We discussed how we can move forward together and how we could help each other realizing the dream of owning a house. These are my cheerleaders. When I feel like I cannot move on I have to them to think about. They’re the people who encourage me to #GlowgetIt! Disappointing them is not an option and this is motivation for me.
