It’s not everyday that you get to be introduced by the incomparable Oprah Winfrey. I remember when I was 14 and the announcement was made that she would be conducting interviews with young girls across the country that would join the academy, I was devastated!! I even considered dropping two grades down JUST so I could attend. To have the opportunity To be in an institution that nurtures young girls from all backgrounds. Fast forward to today and I am giving the Keynote Address at the Class of 2019 Valedictory Ceremony. What a full full circle it is for me today. What an honour for Mama O to introduce me. I know my angels in heaven are having a sing and dance. Today was a humbling day. Today was a good day. . . Dear 15 year old Zamo… Guess what, it gets sunnier as we go along.
And today, she is at the Academy as the Keynote of Address, ‘what a full circle’, she wrote in her post.
Nomzamo reminded her 15-year0old self that it does get shinier as they go along.
