SA actress, media personality and ambassador, Nomzamo Mbatha, was thrilled after winning the award for philanthropy award at E! Entertainment's 15th year in Africa celebrations recently.
The multi-talented actress took to social media after receiving her award and shared a snap and aspiring message with her followers on Instagram.
She definitely deserved this award for all the humanitarian work that she does and truly feels humbled by doing good for those who are society's most marginalised.
She wrote: "God, my people celebrate me... what a feeling. It always leaves me humbled and genuinely speechless when honored or awarded for the humanitarian work that I do. To me it’s a labor of love, that allows me to shine a light and do good for those who are society's most marginalized. Maybe it’s because I come from that world."
Nomzamo added that her role with the UN Refugee Agency and various other philanthropic endeavours has opened up so much more for her in her life, as well as taught her about balances and being able to use her power to influence change.
The SA actress added: "My role with the UN Refugee Agency as well as the various philanthropic endeavours has opened me up to a world bigger than myself where I have come to balance connecting with my displaced kin in a refugee camp, to engaging world economic leaders on funding and youth of South Africa on education, skills development as well raising awareness on mental health issues. It's rewarding in its own way, and instils a change in your own life while calling others to do their part. I'm grateful. This feeling is beautiful. Thank you @eonlineafrica @enews for this incredible honour. Wow THANK YOU E! #15YearsofE"
