(ARTWORK:I feel her by Reggie Khumalo)

The President’s View

Welcome to the month of February!
For some, the month of love 💕; some, the end of “Januworry” but for all a blessing of health and life.

The country has bled  at the loss of life from the COVID-19 pandemic and most recently the damage caused by Cyclone Eloise. However, we have much to be grateful for. February also marks the turn of the tide in the fight against COVID-19 as we received our first consignment of the COVID-19 vaccine. We look forward to many positive outcomes from the planned rollout and hope it is the beginning of reviving the economy and the end of our collective pain and strife.

Still with new beginnings, how are those resolutions coming? If we have learnt anything at all, it is that life is precious and we ought make the best of it everyday. So spend time with loved ones, write that book, learn how to ride a bike, bring your Pinterest boards to life … bring out your best self  always.

We are certainly looking forward to hosting an exciting number of programmes and initiatives in the year ahead. We set the ball rolling with a sensational collaboration with fine artist Reggie Khumalo (@reggiethenomad). We present to you an exclusive body of art titled ‘I Feel Her..”. It is without a doubt an ode to women everywhere. Here’s what the artist had to say about the piece;
 

REGGIE KHUMALO_X_AWCA “I FEEL HER…”
” She doesn’t have to show you her power, she is the power. She doesn’t have to conform but from the back she leads. Her humbleness is her strength. Her weakness worn as armour. She doesn’t know it yet but she is a future President, CEO, engineer … Her doubt is not a matter of confusion or disbelief but of asking herself, “will they be able to handle me”,.. She knows she is already all of the above and more. Is true power what you see or is power, what is felt. I can feel her energy all the way from the back of the room. She doesn’t have to announce herself. I feel her…” – Reggie Khumalo
