Bonang Matheba reacted to questions she gets on a daily basis at the UN Summit while in India, Mumbai.
SowetanLIVE reports that the goal getter response revealed that young girls should not wait for a man in the position of a husband before they live life and achieve success.
“We always teach girls that they must aspire to be a wife or mother. I turn 32 in June, the one thing I always get asked is ‘when are you getting married?’ ‘When are you having children?”
“No honey, I want to make some money, I want to travel the world. I want to come to Mumbai. I want to speak at the UN Women’s Summit. I want to be an inspiration.”
“I don’t have a husband and children. That will come at a later stage. Why is it that the things that I have achieved with the help of my mom and sisters can’t be celebrated? Why does it have to be validated if there is a man next to me? To enable girls to be unstoppable we have to give them access to education.”
