Introduce Yourself: hii my names sameera Mahomed but everyone calls me Sam. I’m 19 years old and live in durban south Africa.
Thoughts On People In The World?: I think there are the selfish and the selfless. While the selfish flourish the selfless are breaking their back to hold them up.
What are your inspirations & goals?: I want to empower my gender, stand up for the voiceless, speak on things that people try to ignore. I’m currently in my second year of university with a major in psychology and with that I’d love to go into developmental psychology and be the help to kids that I never had growing up.
How would you impact the world?: Through empowering the youth, I think the only way to change and better our future is to nurture our youth.
Struggles In Life? : My dad’s always been a pretty difficult person, he has two wives and life’s not always peachy. More than anything we go through financial hardships and it’s really difficult to make ends meet. I live in a family with 4 brothers and i have this internal war to prove that just cause I’m a girl doesn’t make me less than. I struggle with depression and anxiety and usually find it hard to cope especially in a family where mental illness isn’t considered an illness.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : Some days I feel good, some days I don’t. There’s a lot I’d change. I hate my nose, my back, I’d change my voice and my weight. I seem confident but I’m extremely insecure and I know it’s terrible.
What does love mean to you?: Love is an illusion. I don’t believe in it at all. I feel that it’s only an excuse for people to hurt you. Like “oh I cheated on you because I love you”. I think it’s because of growing up in an environment where my parents only ever fought. I just don’t believe in it.
