      My #GlowGetterSquad is my two best friends, we’ve been friends since primary/middle school, they have supported me throughout my childhood. We even decided to glow better together by opening our own construction company called Di Tlougatsi PTY, we build each other and also support each other through business and private life. What a way to glow with your friends right 😉

        My #GlowGetterSquard is My mom, always said: “Be YOU, to be
        be-YOU-tiful.” Which means, stay true to who you are, because that is what makes you beautiful!”
        My mom is the strongest woman I know. Like any teenager, I was tough on my Mom over the years, and I’m so lucky for all the love and patience she’s given me. We decided to start a business together three years ago and I’ve discovered through working together that we’re very alike- when you’re young you can’t see or appreciate that. It’s so special to have a friendship with your Mom. She has always believed in me; taught me to embrace failures and that’s helped me learn to love myself. Her best advice, ironically is the one I disagreed with growing up: ‘A messy room is a messy mind!’ Now, I think: It’s so true!” #GlowGletterSquard#jabu Magubane Sithole♥️

      • Sanele Portia Sibiya says:

        My #glowgetter squad is my family
        And friends. My sister Zinhle; My nieces Nombulelo and Wendy and my friends Zanele; Bongekile and Samukelisiwe .
        We always encourage each other to be the best of who their are.. The support is amazing; we work hard and as a team always.
        We always find the best in each other and number one support system. We cheer behind each others success and we work together to support each other in any failure.

        We go through life’s challenges together; we laugh together and we cry together. We do our best to make life worth living for and most difficult circumstances bearable.
        We teach each other word of mouth
        We pray together and we pray for each other
        We encourage good behaviour all the team. .we are a family that hustles together. Even my friends have extended the friendship into sisterhood..
        We plan everything together and we always make sure we constructively criticise each when need be.. Being raised by a single mum( may her soul rest in peace) was never a walk in the park but it taught us to love each other; support each other and remember the biggest gift of all LOVE..
        Love is all that we had and knew and that has kept us together; stronger and better..
        Our love for each other is unconditional.

        My #GlowGetter Squad are Nossie V. d Westhuizen, Beronice Melody and Denise Smith. We use to be work colleagues and best friends. We always had each other’s backs and can share any problems knowing that it will stay between us. We are still having our ladies knights out and our outings with each ones birthday. I really ant wait for lock down to be something of the past because we miss each other and have already made plans. We support each other in any family crises and is always there when one needs help. We love each other dearly and pray that it will stay this way till death. We are friends for over 25years now. #Rubyboc

        My #GlowGetterSquad are my 4 friends/ Sisters who inspired me to be a better version of my self.
        We are always there to support each other through prayer, landing a hand when needed, financially, physically being there for one another, encouraging each other that no matter what, we are capable, strong enough, our happiness and worth cannot be compromised and that whatever we wish to achieve we can achieve it!
        We celebrate each other’s success and lift up those who fall along the road. My #GlowGetterSquad is an inspiration to other women in our society and I thank God for them!
        I am an entrepreneur today, I am a better mother to my kids, a better wife to my husband and i have stronger faith than ever before because of the positive influence I have gained from them.

      • fikilecebs06 says:

        #GlowGetter squad are my sisters. They supported me through thick and thin. I remember loosing my daddy babies. He died left me with nothing but my sisters help me to study at Unisa to persue my bachelor degree. Because of my sisters I am a qualified permanently employed teacher. My late mother was my inspiration. She taught us to be there for each other in what ever situation. We may have our differences as family but we are always united when life throws lemons to one of us. I know that with my sisters on my side, we can conquer the world. I always strive to keep my family happy all the time in return.

    • rich.dana says:

      Mu squaf we’ve been together for almost over 10 years we met through the same industry however as we grew closer we aspired to hold higher positions and study further and we always motivated to hold higher positions in our respective jobs and 10 years passed we’ve achieved all that we desired and hoped to have however within that period we never lost touched we always made sure that we meet at least for a weekend getaway just girls trip and celebrate our successes as well as what ever we have achieved that year. Since then we have made it a priority to have a girls trip yearly as we have families and children of our owns and hardly have time to meet as frequently as we hoped we would have. We’re basically family and constantly check up on each other via text or group chat just to see how everyone is doing.


    • keminasto says:

      #GlowGetterSquad is definately my sister, my two colleagues and my mom they always set a goal for me we even compete on monthly savings and our target is the December holiday. On a monthly we compete on who is having the most savings and that has encouraged all of us to save and stop buying unnecessary stuff which will not be used within three months. We visit each other and drink tea together while we are sharing our conquared temptations of shopping the unnecessaries. At the same time we support each regarding the family issues that we face daily.
      We are also planning to go to the most vulnerable and assist them the winter warmers from our wadrobes #GlowGetterSquad

    • Mandisa Sibisi says:

      My #GlowGetterSquad are my sister Snegugu and Gugulethu , if life as women we go through a lot while trying to find ourselves and establish who we really are and where we want to be , so when there are hurdles or set backs everyone needs that push to not give up and that the end will be well worth it , learning patience and courage from each other send that anything is possible …. Having family’s, while studying, having a full time job and a side hustle requires a dedicated and focused individual, we push each other to utilize the 16 hours hours out of the 24 hours wisely …and I might say we are thriving

    • thandiweblessing says:

      My mom, cousin and bestfriend are my day ones. They have always been there through my rise and fall. It is such a privilege to have such a support system in one’s life. I love them so much. #Glowgettersquad

  2. Sibongile Radunz says:

    My #GlowGetterSquad is My grandmother, mother and aunt. My prayer warriors and my trusted confidants. The ones who will remain when everyone else walks out. They have carried me through the lowest points of my life and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for them. You give me sound advice and only want the best for me. You are an example of what to be and I am forever appreciative to have you in my life 🙂

    • scheepers199402 says:

      The Women in my life that supports me and all my ventures that guide’s me through thick and thin through all my up’s and downs’s is my Mom(Marilyn Scheepers) My Two elder sisters (Marilyn Scheepers Olifant) and (Carmen Scheepers) and my little niece (Danelle Scheepers) they remind me on a consistent basis to remain humble and to always preserve through different hardships I might come across in life, because of their encouragement I have accomplished so much of my Goals and still continue to work harder than ever before.

      Thank you so much for your time and effort into molding me to be the best I can be especially my mommy.

      My family has taught me so much regarding how to be a young women and how to never give up on your dreams and never to underestimate the power you have as a women.

      They taught me the difference between right and wrong, how to be a lady all while being exposed to so many factors that could of gotten them down and under but they kept on shining through adversity and hardships. They taught me skills that only ones family can convey correctly and morally.

      No matter how much times I feel like going off the road with lack of motivation my mother and sisters always comes out of no where like a big bright shinning star to remind me that the universe is my oyster and I need to still make so much valuable pearls in life.

If it was never for them I don’t want know if would have gotten out of that toxic hole. I love you guys so much.

  4. Liezel Fisher says:

    My #GlowGetterSquad, is three ladies we been friends since primary school days – we are much older now and we all happen to be studying towards accomplishing our bigger goals in life which we set for ourselves. When you young and have not invested much in yourself and you have friends who uplift you too push harder that is my glowgetterquad “you passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it”, people who are not only their emotionally but through every walk of life. Most importantly wanting the best for you and others who surround them thats what I classify as true women with class and integrity.

  6. FAEEMAH khan says:

    My glowGetterSquad are my sisters!! I think about how much our sisterhood has impacted my daily habits. Personal growth is an everlasting value that proves its strength in how we can never truly reach a finite point of becoming a better version of ourselves, that we can never reach a max capacity on our ability to learn and appreciate the things around us that challenge us. For me,(and im sure everyone else) 2020 has been a challenging year in many aspects, but there are so many lessons that I have learned and many moments of positivity. So when i find myself in a tough spot or just having a rough day, i know that my sisters are going to be there no matter what

    • ladykgopie says:

      My #GlowGetterSquad is a group of amazing ladies that I met through our common friend. We have developed a sisterhood that goes beyond just friendship. We are a click that advices each other, we share self help articles/books, we plan trips together, we pray together, we cry together and we also celebrate together. Our collective nental health is very important, we encourage each other to speak up about things that impact us. I love these ladies so much, they make me a better version of myself.

I thank God for them daily because they have saved me when I couldn’t find the strength to save myself… You get family and then there’s my #glowgettersquad. More precious than I can comprehend….

    My #GlowGetterSquad AKA #MyRideOrDie
    I can write an entire novel about my girls… cause wow… they are the life!
    My squad is more then just friends. We support each other through literally everything in our different lives. Whether it be our kids’ birthday parties ; family problems at home; relationships problems with the “other gender”; etc. I love my girls so so much. i don’t speak for us all but i do speak for myself when i say there are a few times that they were the only reason i got through certain situations. They are my pillars of strength and my support system. They are my “to go” people and never disappoint me. We’ve grown so close to one another that time apart is just not natural to us. We make plan, come hell or high waters..lolz… note even COVID – 19 could stop us.
    Before i carry on and on, i’ll just close by saying i found my sisters that were birth other parents. LOML

      Being able to spare few minutes out of their busy schedule and listen to me whenever i call or text them is heartwarming.Their advices always come from the bottom of their hearts and whenever they tell me dat “HO TLO LOKA”(everything will be okay)i can feel it .Being there for someone doesn’t mean giving presents but little things like sitting down and listening to someone ,giving warm hugs and giving heartfelt comforts and advices are priceless moments.My #GlowGetterSquad consists of #My aunt Ntshiuwa Makae
      #My cousin Portia Mokhoali
      #My friend Tshidi Olifant
      #My friend Panjo Sellane.
      They are truly a blessing in my life and they always keep me going through difficult times.

  13. Janine Brothers says:

    My #GlowGettersquad is fabulous. They inspire, aspire and motivate me to best version of myself each day. We teach each other new life lessons each day and try to help each other as best as we can. I love them so much for being with me through the Good and Bad times in life

  14. Jessica Ramokotjo says:

    My #glowgettersquad is my friend 2 friends Pammie and Pearl, my sister Precious and my 16-year-old daughter Seatile who is becoming a wonderful woman in this crazy world we living in. Having to set a good example for her so she can become a good person in their generation they living. We work hard to push ourselves and better the others as well. Regardless of how tired we are or broke we always try our best to make sure that the people that we come across even if we cant assist with money but we give what we have from what we have raised from friends and family. We always support to study further, try something new or learn something. We always say we only have 1 life to live let us try our best to use it. Its been a crazy journey from my spiritual process, studies, motherhood, being a motivator, being a daughter, leaving my old life behind, juggling work with everything. A little pampering would be so great and do to this with my squad will be the best thing. My ladies would really love to win the Fenty prize so that my squad and I can pamper ourselves plus my give my daughter make up tips as she has never tried any makeup.

  15. Andrea Pillay says:

    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

  16. NOKULUNGA Nxumalo says:

    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 …


  20. Charlene Samuels says:

    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

  21. Bulelwa Maxam says:

    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!!

  22. Caryn Ah Shene says:

    My “Glow Getter” squad is my motivators, they keep me going every step of the way. I am gratefull to have a group of ladies like them in my life. As a group we have accomplished a lot together. I do think they deserve a bit of pampering from time to time

    • 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

          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:

          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

            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.
