Zoë Modiga has grown a lot since she first stepped onto the entertainment scene. The beautiful singer now has a lot more love for herself than she did when she started out and has become proud of who she is.
Zoë Modiga isn't the same young singer South Africa met in 2016 when she was part of The Voice SA.
She has grown, not only as performer and artist but as a woman too. Zoë learned to love herself just as she is, and her pride is inspiring.
TimesLIVE reports that Zoë said the experiences she had in the entertainment industry has changed her views on loving yourself.
Zoë described her skin as brown chocolate and loves looking different from other celebs with her short hair.
I had to learn and unlearn a lot of things for my own sake. I realised the importance of having people that look like you, to look to in different spaces. I had to learn to be okay with myself and where I am, that made it easier for me to start enjoying myself.
We love her level of confidence!
The soulful singer said she realised long ago that her skin is a threat to others and many try to take down women with darker skins and want them to feel insecure.
It's funny because we live in such a tricky yet beautiful era. I recently realised that the social media and social space was not a very healthy space for me. I was beginning to break myself down and beginning to doubt myself.
I had to break away from everything so I could remind myself of who I am, my gift, my blessing and just to let go of all the pressures we are subjected to.
According to Zoë, the best remedy is love.
Because we are made from love, we spend our whole lives looking for it. We look for it within ourselves. We look for it in other people and in other things. Whether through friendship or platonic relationships and even romantic love. But the most important kind of love is the love for self and the love of the higher power. When you love yourself the rest falls into place.
What truly inspiring words.
