Mzansi Influencer Calendar 2019 – Available Now!!!

Influencers, who are they, and why do we care? When you think influencer, you probably picture beautiful women shopping for designer clothes in Dubai or radiant couples lounging on tropical beaches. That’s all true; however, the relevance and impact of social media influencers is incredible and it is changing the face of business and who we interact socially.

Looking at influencers wholly, they do much more than create visual appeal and market products. By my definition, influencers are the future.

5 Mzansi Influencers to Follow for Wearable Instagram Outfits

Follow these stylish Instagrammers and stay up to date with the latest trends.

Does she actually wear those outfits in ‘real’ life? That is a question I’m sure we’ve all asked at some point while scrolling down our Instagram feed.

Personally, there is no way I can be out at the mall or at my grandmother’s house wearing a brallete and a high-slit skirt so high up it would make Lil Kim cringe. So if you, like me, have a more laid back style, these Instagram accounts are a definite go-to for everyday style inspiration.

Pad Drive

So we took to the streets and asked Pretorians to support our pad campaign called Inside Out, a project under the Buyelekhaya Foundation. It was so overwhelming how people were open and ready to support the cause. I am grateful to all of you.

Thank you also to the ladies who took the time off their Saturdays to campaign with us. All proceeds went to the Tshwane Leadership Foundation. If you are interested in supporting future campaigns or have a project that you need support for, inbox us, comment, share! Let us continue to love and give hope to those around us.

Community Activism: Young People Making a Difference

Ubuntu, the idea that the needs of others are above my own. This is a phrase popularly used to describe us as South Africans but often in reality it feels we are far detached from this way of life. So when I meet young people like Asanda Mpelwane, who are making a positive impact in their communities, it is inspiring and revives my belief in us as a nation. I speak in-depth with her about her project collecting pads for homeless women and the importance of volunteerism, particularly for young people in the country. YouTube link:

About Me

Hi there! Welcome to South African Girl. I’m Khanyi and I’m excited to have you on my page because something tells me you are a woman who knows her worth and goes after what she wants. As women we know how challenging and lonely the road to success can be, especially in a largely patriarchal society as South Africa.  I’ve created this platform to remind you that you are not alone, there is a whole community of women who share similar ambitions.

So a little about me. I am a twenty something year old creative from the coast (Eastern Cape stand up, whoop whoop!). I’ve worked in journalism, TV production, and online content management, and other industries just hobbling along trying to find my may. I come from a regular middle class  (lower, lower middle class) home with all the challenges we all experience growing up. You know what I’m talking about ladies, I don’t even need to go there!

The South African Girl YouTube channel goes deep into these issues, particularly issues surrounding our emotional well-being, how to navigate the workspace and also celebrating our femininity and indulging our sweet pleasures.

I wish this might be a space for women to share their stories of struggle and success, and a celebration of all things 21st century woman. I strongly believe we all have a purpose and I hope this blog/vlog will be a small plug for you in the right direction.

Much love Sugarpops!
