Meet Simone a biokeneticist and Nike Trainer living in Johannesburg, South Africa. I first met Simone at the Nike Training Club in Rosebank and I just had to find out more about her and her passion for fitness.
I’ve been watching the Olympics my whole life probably since Seoul1988 (I was 3) but Sydney 2000 has stuck with me with Cathy Freeman making history by being the first Aborigine to win gold in 400 metres in her home country. This being Women’s month I would love to celebrate the Women breaking down the sporting barriers.
I’ve watched #RIO2016 with same excitement as always and seen once again significant history been made. I yelled at the screen, celebrated when my own country Zimbabwe ‘s Mighty Warriors scored their first ever goal at the Olympics against Germany. This was the first time any Zimbabwean soccer team had made to the Olympics (men or women).
Once a month my favourite book store Skoobs holds the writers bloc where poets come together and share their craft. I found this event on Facebook yesterday and decided to attend. I had never been to a poetry reading session before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It’s great to see Skoobs giving young people the platform to bring their poetry, art , music and books. The writer’s bloc was organised by Calen who circulated the bookstore welcoming everyone before the show started. The topic was DREAMS.
