1.Who Twiggy is?
Twiggy is my alter ego. I got the nickname when I was in primary school because I was so skinny. When social media and that came about, I needed a handle so went for “Twiggy”. Twiggy is a little more outgoing than Tshepang, speaks her mind and isn’t afraid of what people think of her. What people won’t believe is that I really am shy so having this alter ego helps me break out of that shell.
2.What does she do for a living?
I am more than one thing. I think having only 1 job as a millenial is quite strange. I am a brand manager/ digital marketer, a lifestyle & fashion blogger. (Amateur) photographer and food stylist and full time fan girl for Riky Rick lol.
- A brief description on SleeplessInSoweto,Its aim& purpose?
Sleepless in Soweto is a women’s lifestyle blog devoted to inspiring an exuberant and creative life. Our upbringing in Soweto combined with my self-diagnosis of insomnia was the spark that began the journey of Sleepless in Soweto in 2011.
Founded by Myself, and co-authored by Lesedi Ramonyane, my sister and bff, the blog has grown over the years from simply being a space to share cool fashion photos to a platform showcasing our obsession with beauty, travel, food, fashion and photography. As sisters and BFFs, Sleepless in Soweto also offers a glimpse of our adventures together around Johannesburg.
4.Describe your style?
My style is very edgy and hip. I don’t have an exact description of my style because it’s constantly changing depending on my mood. It can go to sophisticated to sporty to hobo chic depending on how I feel that day.I always just make sure that I am super comfortable and sexy at all times.
5.A quote you live by?
“Never grow up.”
6.What does being a Maverick mean to you?
Being a maverick to me means being your unique self. Being independent, a trendsetter, setting your own rules and following your own opinions. Not letting other people’s judgment affect your life.
