Dr. Nothabo Ncube and I met for the first time at my book launch event for Everything I Couldn’t Tell My Mother. Her beautiful smile lit up the room and after only exchanging a few words, I knew that we would be soul sisters for life. After hearing her story, my eyes filled up with tears. She has experienced loss, love and is now on a mission to use her life for the betterment of others. Once a little girl from Zimbabwe with big dreams; Dr. Ncube is now creating a legacy by paving the way for little girls around the world. She is proof that behind every experience and outcome is a blessing and benefit. I feel truly blessed to have her in my life and I cannot wait to see what God has planned for her next. Here is her story…

It gave me purpose and hope.
