We rise by lifting others, was the topic for the morning at the monthly domestic workers course held at Hirsch’s homestore in Ballito, with special guest speaker Zandile Veronica Mthethwa who gave the ladies an inspiring message to “hold on to what you believe in, to never stop dreaming, and to always run towards your goals.”
Zandile is a local domestic worker more commonly known as V, she overcame all odds when a distant dream to run the New York City Marathon came to life. V is not a podium runner, but her story is full of sheer determination and guts with a strong binding message that proves that by helping others rise we rise too. Her heartfelt story has now caught the attention of hundreds of people across the globe and what was once a distant dream is now turning into a career – V has just recently been sponsored by Virgin Atlantic to compete in the London Marathon in April 2018.
After being motivated by V , the ladies received an exciting cooking demonstration by Hirsch’s head chef Havenisha Naidoo and a lesson on the correct way to clean the different appliances to make sure they are maintained well to last longer.
