What I… Andisiwa from Authentic Mama

Today I’m interviewing Zimkhitha Andisiwe Ngaleka who blogs over at Authentic Mama

Now in her mid-twenties she is a teacher, coffee addict, single mom to a dramatic daughter and a lover of Jesus.

Her blog is about her aspiration to to live an authentic life in this sometimes inauthentic world.


What I…


What I know is that I am Enough. As a woman we are so often made to feel like we are not enough, not good enough, not beautiful enough, not strong enough, not suitable for this and that. Life has taught me that I am enough and very much capable to be and do anything I set my heart to.


Life, Coffee, People. Most of all, I love being a mother. As challenging as it has been for me as a single mom, motherhood has been the best journey in my life. I have learnt to love and be loved on a deeper level than I have ever experienced. I would not trade motherhood (and my daughter) for the world.


I love to read (when I actually get the time) Faith, Romance, Motivational and General Life Experience books. I’m currently reading The Zahir by Paulo Coelho and I’m loving it.


I want to live an authentic meaningful life. I want to leave this world knowing that I lived my best life, loved wholeheartedly and made a difference. Knowing that I contributed in making this world a better place. This is most likely why the teaching profession chose me.


Haha. I’m honestly no fashionista. If it looks decent and comfortable , I will wear it. I have however noticed a lot of floral in my wardrobe.


I need God. I am nothing without Him in my life and every day I realise I need Him more and more each day.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!
