I Engage

I Engage

One of the things I enjoy is to engage with young women. So, once a quarter, I host a "Girls Lunch with Dr Lulu". We sit, eat, talk, question, laugh, and share experiences about life in general.

Our end of the year Girls Lunch focused on the infinite possibilities that open up when we adopt a positive interpretation of self. I watched with empathy and awe at the courage of the Girls as they engaged and most certainly struggled to dig deep into what stands on the way of simply being who they really are. As we examined how identity, relationships and the environment influence our structures of interpretation (including of ourselves), I was taken aback by how as parents we might just be the ones limiting our Girls, be it unintentionally so. As we move into 2019, can I PLEASE appeal and encourage all parents to be a lot more intentional and deliberate in trusting our Girls.

Parents just let the Girls be, asseblief!

Review by Ulla Ndadi

Transformative is the word to describe my first “Girls Lunch with Dr Lulu” held on 1 December 2018, in Pretoria. The privilege presented to me to attend the Girl’s lunch could not come at a better time than now. I was uncertain about numerous aspects in my life and I got a lot of clarity and practical tools I can apply. Our facilitator Ms Nothemba Mxenge, absolutely an inspirational woman, I have learned so much from her! With being the youngest amongst all these women, once I got out of my comfort zone and engaged with the ladies, I realized that this the place I need to be. I learned different things from each one of them as we all varied in age and experience. At the end of the day I learned a lot about myself, what I need to do in life and how I need to get there. I walked away with the awareness of different network of support, understanding that fear is a choice, connections you make with people, self love and knowing your self-worth. One thing I really appreciate about the workshop is that it is not just one of those events where you are inspired for the day and continue living your life as you did. Dr Lulu gets involve in your life, asks for feedback after the event, and is eager to understand which areas she can help you with. I am excited to be part of this transformative journey and look forward to attend the second Girls lunch with Dr Lulu! Thank you Dr Lulu for organizing such an incredible event & thank you Nothemba Mxenge for giving us all these essential tools to help us grow into the women we need and want to be. – ULLA NDADI, NAMIBIA
