Some of you may have peeped my Insta stories on the day of Lorna Maseko’s True Love cover luncheon at Codfather, Sandton. For those who didn’t, I’ve shared a vlog from the day below. But before we get into that, I would love to share with you all just how much the article on Lorna by Kemong Mopedi stuck out for me, as well as how I personally identify with some of what I read.
Energy speaks louder than me saying hello to you, and it’s not something you can fake. I’m very down to earth and just want to spread positive energy at all times. – Lorna
Very often, we tend to create ideas in our minds of who a person is before we even get the chance to have a personal interaction with them. Our conclusions are largely drawn from hearsay as well as the visual aesthetic with which one presents themselves. I mean, I get it, and I definitely agree with the saying “You dress how you want to be addressed.” However, hows about we also balance that with “Never judge a book by its cover.” Through reading the cover story, I’ve come to discover Lorna beyond being a former ballerina and Top Billing Presenter. I’ve learnt she is furthermore a business women and a child of God strengthened by her faith.
I encourage you to take a moment to read up on Lorna “A girl misunderstood” and maybe you too will identify with some of her struggles but more importantly be encouraged by how she has been brave and daring enough to follow through with all that she sets her heart and mind on.
I love those stories of people who build themselves up from nothing because that’s my own story. – Lorna
I love that she works hard and does all of that on the down low, and doesn’t feel the need to announce it to the world. She really is a true gem in an era where people constantly feel the need to announce their plans. The biggest lesson I took away from the interview was perception is not reality. Lorna, you’re refreshingly beautiful and never change for the world. – Kemong Mopedi; Content Editor for True Love Magazine
