How does being a mom influence your work and career?
It makes organisation more key than ever before. And not every job is on the cards as it used to be.
Conversely, how does work influence your perspective as a mother and wife?
It makes you think about what you’re willing to sacrifice or not sacrifice to fulfil both roles to the best of your ability.
What we have heard is that motherhood is challenging, what was your most surprising moment being a mother?
Probably the moment of childbirth, when you meet the little human that you have so much love and dedication towards and you marvel at the wonders of God.
What is the biggest challenge you have faced in balancing your private life and professional life?
Trying to have any kind of social life is incredibly difficult, because after God and family, and the work…there’s little time to do anything other than to rest.
If you could share one lesson with us on motherhood, what would that be?
It’s ok to be overwhelmed and not know everything. Take your time, do research on your own child. Each individual child has different needs.
How would you define your former life, and your lifestyle now?
(Lol) a lot more selfish, less mature and ten times more spontaneous. Now most of all I do is pre-planned and prepped for.
What have you had to sacrifice as a mother?
I don’t see anything I’ve done as a sacrifice. It’s simply a blessing that has its requirements and criteria.
What is your definition of ‘Having it All’?
Being Happy and healthy emotionally, spiritually and physically and acknowledging all the ways to be thankful and appreciative of it all.
Would you stick to being a vixen or an actress?
I’m definitely more than either or those two definitions. My growth will become more evident as more time pass God willing.
How do you manage internet bully crisis?
The situation makes me quite disturbed. Honestly I’ve been on both sides of the fence. I have bullied online and have been bullied also. But I take it all with a pinch of salt, because I’m very sure of who I am and what I stand for. There will always be trolls in every aspect of life. At this point in my life I recognise it’s a horrid thing and should be minimised and regulated. The truth of the matter is there are a lot of cyber gangsters, these are people who wouldn’t dare attempt to provoke you in person and are usually quite angry or upset about their own lives. Trolling makes them feel superior for all of 5 seconds. You are only affected by what you allow to hurt you. My armour is pretty solid.
What and what should your fans expect from you in your work area?
They should expect to grow and mature along with me in all I am doing. They will want to see more and different angles of my work and I will do be absolute best to meet their demands. I would be no where without them. They’ve had me nominated 3 times this year. So I’m quite thankful.
A memorable day you will never forget?
The day my daughter arrived.
Anything you would like to share with us or your fans to know?
I love you, May God bless you all. I pray he continues to help me find ways to touch your lives. I thank you.
