TV personality Nandi Madida was honoured to be the voice of SA women, when she attended the Natural Hair Academy conference in Paris, France.
The annual event has been dubbed to be the largest conference for women of African descent in Europe.
Women from across the globe gathered at the conference to speak about teaching the youth, to embrace their natural heritage.
Nandi who has become known for her signature pixie afro applauded the event, “Sometimes we don’t realize the impact we have on people around the world. I am so humbled!” “It is absolutely amazing. It is just an honour to be called to speak for what I stand for, which is basically being confident in your own skin and with your own hair,” she said.
Nandi added that it was important to have conversations to inspire women to embrace their natural heritage as Africans.
She explained that her natural signature look was a progression, after trying almost all hairstyles when she was younger.
Nandi tweeted “What an honour to represent my continent at the #NHA2017 in Paris was such an honour! #AfricanQueen #NaturalHair
