Nkateko.E Fakude. Who am I?

A phoenix rising.

A maverick walking into her purpose.

I am the dreamer you read about in books. I have dreams that scare me and to some extent the people around me.

I was born and bred in the Mpumalanga province in South Africa in a village called Bushbuckridge. I spent all my childhood there, that is the place I call home to this very day.

I moved to the Limpopo province to complete my High school education. I attained my Bachelor’s degree at St Mark’s Comprehensive college and also made best friends for life and met some of the most amazing people ever.

I am currently a University student in my third year of studying the law. I am an ambassador for the rights of women and children, two issues I hold close to my heart. I am a believer in the power of sisterhood and girl love, I love to uplift fellow women and remind them of their untamed and limitless potential to do the impossible.

The most important thing you need to know about me is that I am saved by the blood of Christ and I am not ashamed of His gospel.

I aspire to be great someday. I believe that the power vested in me is too great to be contained. I want to uplift, build, inspire, teach, represent and motivate everyone around me and everywhere around the world  I just want to be great!

I believe in the power of prayer. I believe in dreams and speaking things into existence. I believe in love. I believe in Destiny. I believe in God and divine purpose. I believe in me and my potential to achieve my wildest dreams.

I am what my friends would call the life of the party (or so I think) mainly because I speak too much and I am always trying to make them laugh. In my defence, I love happy people. I love when we forget our problems and laugh even if it’s for a quick second. I am a happy person and I want everyone around me to be happy. I love my quiet time, I would choose to be alone with my thoughts over going to the mall.

I want this blog to be a representation of who I am as a person and the things i stand for.

Thank you for your time.
