Liquid Date with Nomahlubi Madikgetla

Im a fashion designer, image consultant (I eat, live, breathe fashion and fabric) and a 3rd year student at the University of Johannesburg. A simple Definition of Nomahlubi. Pray, Fashion, Eat, Love, Give, Live, Succeed, Thank.
What motto do you live by?
Be (at all times) the be best of you! Know you strengths and embrace them, understand your purpose and make it happen.
When do you feel beautiful the most?
When I allow my flaws to work as a reminder of how someone wishes to have that which I hate. I feel beautiful because I KNOW I am beautiful!
What is love to you?
Love is NOT about loving the perfect person, but loving that imperfect person, perfectly.
Who/what do you love right now?
My boyfriend Daniel Katleho Thebe. I Love our relationship as well.
Favourite part of your body?
Face and Waist.
Was) My stomach area, (I've learned to love it)
What do you wish everyone knew?
The Worlds view on life. I wish people knew how fulfilling it is to be in the presents of the Lord. To know, dwell and live by his word. If we (the whole world) would live according to the will of God for our lives, so much can go right. All that God wants from us is obedience.
What has been your proudest moment?

Your lowest? How did you dust yourself up?
Failing my major in my first year (Which added an extra year to my qualification). Persistence and change is what saw me through it all, and knowing that Gods will won't take me where His Grace won't guide me.
Who inspires you?
My mother, (as a single parent) Her hard work and fight for change and a better life for me, has (timelessly) been an inspiration for me to be better, everyday, at what I do. So that I too one day, am able to return the favour of a better living for her.
Favourite lines in a poem/song?
"If you believe in yourself and often know what you want, you're going to make it happen. And if you kneel on you keens and ask the Lord from above, He's going to make it happen"
