𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗬𝗢𝗨? I am loud. I am proud. I am an extrovert and I have no trouble talking to young or old. I like to make people laugh and make them feel comfortable around me.
𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗺𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗺𝗼𝘀𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗶𝗻 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲? My children, my husband, and my family. They are my reason for getting up every morning and the reason why I will never, EVER, stop fighting and going on. I will never give up because of them. Even though they ground me, they also lift me up to reach the highest heights.
𝗔𝗰𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗶𝘁𝘆/𝗵𝗼𝗯𝗯𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗲𝗻𝗷𝗼𝘆 𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗳𝗿𝗲𝗲 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲? I love to cook and feed the people that I love and care for. My kitchen is my “safe place” and I enjoy getting my sons involved in the kitchen, raising gentlemen that will be able to cook and look after their partners one day.
𝗪𝗵𝗼 𝗶𝗻𝘀𝗽𝗶𝗿𝗲𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂? I am in a very fortunate position to be surrounded by strong, amazing and inspiring women. The women that I work with Kotie Nigrini and Yvette Cronje are true inspirations. They have both faced their own obstacles in life but persisted and made a success of their own company.
Chanri Austin, my sister, always has new ways to test me as a human, mother, friend, or sibling and has the unique ability to either push me to boiling point or to be my safe place when the winds of life try to blow me away.
My Ouma Kitty Austin was the most amazing woman to walk this earth. She was kind and generous, loving, and compassionate, strong and fierce and one of the best mothers I have ever seen. The daughters she raised with the same qualities, Anrea Fernandes and Sorina Austin-Lyne are my support system and I wouldn’t be able to remain sane without their support, love and advice.
I am blessed with an amazing mother-in-law, Elise Steenkamp, that accepted me as one of her own and always stands by me when I struggle to stand alone.
