Embrace your natural being: Thando

Thando Dube

By Sindiso Dube in Bulawayo

Bulawayo model Thando Dube has urged other models and fellow females to embrace their natural look and not resort to skin-lightening, commonly known as bleaching.

Talking to Standard Style on the sidelines of a photoshoot, the model who was sporting her natural hair, said she loves expressing her natural being.

“I am young and confident in my natural being. I believe being natural gives women a cutting edge on looks and I am comfortable with my skin, on which I don’t apply lightening creams to be a ‘yellow bone”, Dube said.

“I have been sporting this short and natural hairstyle for some time and I have been feeling good about it and it feels free and refreshing over the artificial braids and wigs. I urge females to take pride in their natural beauty, God made us the way we are for a reason.”

The model said she enjoys conversations with the camera lenses.

“I like taking pictures, I never go a day without documenting my day, outfit or my daily errands with pictures. I like doing photoshoots and have deep conversations with the camera lenses every time I do shoots,” she said.

Dube, who turns 23 this year, is a Journalism and Media Studies student at the National University of Science and Technology in Bulawayo and is looking forward to joining the broadcast industry in radio or television.
