I’m inspired by a girl who goes by the name, Hyjiah Mariam Conde, as young as she is, she has learnt the art of self love. She was bullied in school for her ethnic background, skin color & unique body image, but instead she decided to do empower herself.
Hyjiah started her own nonprofit organization called SuperGirlzland. The purpose was for Hyjiah to be the voice to all the girls who have been emotionally and mentally bruised by being bullied. I had the opportunity to interview Hyjiah and this is what she had to share.
I want to shout so that the whole world may hear my vision and voice. Click To Tweet
Hyjiah you are an inspiration, you have been bold enough to stand up and be the voice of the youth. Is there anything you are afraid of?
Is there a reason you chose South Africa in particular, to kick start your charity?
So Hyjiah you are all about making other girls happy and special. What makes you happy?
I saw an interview of you and you were talking about how you have become popular. How has that popularity changed you as a person?
Can you share with us how far you are with the other interests you want to pursue like choreography, singing and maybe writing.
Do you have a plan in place of how you are going to achieve all your goals?
I am just stunned! Honestly, with all these activities going on you are also an Ambassador and a member of a couple of groups. How do you manage your time?
Can you give a brief pitch to potential sponsors telling them why they should assist Supergirlz Land.
Low self-esteem is not given enough attention. It’s a disease like any other sickness, which needs direct attention & support. Low self-esteem can be caused by bullying, poverty and lack of education; which at times result in suicide. Help me help them as we help one another to save our young girls, one at a time.
Fun question! Would you rather be able to whisper or only able to shout? Pick one.
