I am a Mum to three boys - your typical handsome, clever, noisy, smelly, cuddly boys aged 15, 9 and 5.
I usually work part-time in Administration and I have volunteered for organizations helping people living with HIV (PLHIV) for over a dozen years now. This work - advocating for PLHIV - feeds my soul.
I come from a large family with five brothers and sisters and a half sister. Our whole family is close, but my little sister Sonja and I are very close. One would think she was my big sis - always looking out for me and supporting me. Her youngest daughter Bianca is reguarly mistaken as my child. Not only do we spend a lot of time together, we look alike and have similar mannerisms. She my peusdo-daughter, totally gets me when my boys just give me that clueless ("Mum's lost it!" look).
Yes I'm not very well at the moment, life has been exceedingly tough on my body and mind since the boys Dad and I separated in 2013 after 15 years together. But my boys keep me motivated, keep me striving and searching and never giving up. I know they have the potential to have a positive influence on this world and I want to do all I can to pave the way for them, to encourage and support them to work hard to reach their goals.
