Cape Town – Content creator and social media influencer, Mihlali Ndamase has opened up about her weight loss journey on her Youtube channel.
The prolific influencer said that she gets frequent questions on social media about her body transformation and how she achieved impressive results.
“I was always tiny and I never struggled with my weight growing up. I actually wanted to gain weight when I was in high school because I was insecure about how skinny I was. Especially at the beginning of high school. And then I became insecure about my hips because I felt that they were too wide. I’ve always had hips and I was like ‘why are these things here?’ Back then an athletic body was found more visually appealing,” TimesLive quoted her as saying.
Mihlali emphasised the importance of self-love during her weight loss journey. She said that self-love doesn’t necessarily mean you are content with yourself, but it means that you love the body that you have during all of life’s stages.
She has been recently announced as the new face of Cian Malfy – a gin brand.
“The welcoming of premium influencer, Mihlali Ndamase could not have come at a better time. The fresh-faced and versatile Ndamasei is the perfect fit and exact muse South Africans want to follow as we enjoy living La Dolce Vita,” said Mapula Hadebe, the brand manager, as quoted by IOL.
