My Name is Desiree
A Sotho Woman
Also known as Moratuoa ngwanana wa ha Lekhoaba,
A clan where ladies are full-figured, voluptuous, strong and gorgeous.
I am fortunate to be a size 40. I love being bold and beautiful
.. Contrary to the everyday stories about curvy creatures like me, I took charge of how I look, I never let anybody bring me down because of my fully-fledged features, I rather made the next person feel hungry.
from those moments on, I decided I am going to be a sister that lifts the African figure up, help those who don’t see how amazing they really are see how great it is.
Without much talking, I will take my calculated strides and YOU WILL KNOW I HAVE ARRIVED. I will move my body in such a way that it will seem as if a symphony will be behind every move.. I will speak with a strong voice and laugh boldly to my body’s capacity.
It was when my confidence was high, when my speech, gestures and laughter spoke to my embrace that Charmain Carrol had spotted that difference and proposed a photoshoot. This was an opportunity to express myself visually. I agreed. I loved it.
My body spoke to me, she was happy to twist and turn in angles that I had never known existed, she was more than flattered, only the camera understood her language.
Here’s to the sisters with curves- ubuhle bakho is deep.
Love your big. Show your beautiful
