Your Thoughts on the First Edition of Edits Talks

When I sat down with Nomndeni for our “Moments with Our #WCW” chat, she shared the purpose of the Edits Talks with me.

“I want to bring together visionaries and thought leaders to share their experiences and stories, in an effort to inspire. I want people to take a second glance at what is possible for themselves being African in 2016 and how to navigate these possibilities. The world is excited about Africa and I want all Africans to know this”, she said.

On Saturday, I was one of the 300 people who were blessed enough to get a seat at the first edition of Edits Talks. The experience on Saturday fulfilled what I believe Nomndeni’s purpose is. The audience was left inspired.

For me, Edits Talks was about women, their power and what it is going to take for them to be fearless enough to realise their power and use it. Nomndeni told her personal story in an honest and sincere manner. Most of us could relate to her up-bringing, her dreams and all the things that she had to overcome in her pursuit of success.

I was fortunate enough to get a moment to chat to some of the ladies who were attending and they all shared my sentiments. The event was inspiring and we all realised just how lucky we are to be women living on a continent with so much growth potential and opportunities for women.

“Thank you @Nomndeni. You are a gift to humanity. Your humility speaks volumes. Im illuminated” – selekeng.mohlala via Instgram

“Thank you so much @nomndeni @editstalksfor the opportunity to be part of such an awakening initiative … can’t wait for the next one”

    I always appreciate women who want to uplift other women, I left edits talk knowing that we all go through hard times but it’s also important to go get what you want, instead of making excuses, try “the world will catch you” @Nomndeni quotes,celebrate little moments. I realised we are so hard on our selfs and forget the little things that matter most. I can not wait to go through this journey and make new friends with the beautiful women I saw there. Thanks to my sister Nomndeni and Zinhle for this opportunity. @missncedy instagram☺

    It was a true awakening at no point did i lose interest and I honestly cannot wait for the next one. Nomndeni is a woman of substance and she is incredibly authentic. I could also relate to her story of losing family members and still finding courage to be hopeful and faithful to God.

    What Edits Talks has ignited is going to change lives.
