DAMESOGGEND: BEYOND BEAUTY
Meer oor Marlene le Roux
Dit is vir Landbouskou van Swellendam ‘n groot voorreg om aan te kondig dat Marlene le Roux die spreker is by Swellendam Landbouskou se Damesoggend, BEYOND BEAUTY, Saterdag 2 Maart, 2019.
"I am a proud woman with a disability, but it was a painful journey until I got to this point.
And then God graced me with two beautiful children, Aimee and Adam. Adam had Cerebral Palsy and he was mentally and physically disabled. I needed to dig very deep into my journey of strength and self-acceptance. And this journey I would like to share with other women that are going through similar experiences.
I am blessed to be able to be an activist and an adviser to both abled and disabled persons. I am the CEO of Artscape Theatre Centre. I use my experiences to mentor company executives, government institutions on how to overcome their fear to employ persons with disabilities.
My purpose in life is to highlight the lack of “humanity” which marginalized groups face on a daily basis in South Africa, especially by women and the disabled. I lead by example by living my life to the fullest. I swim, I dance and I laugh at my inabilities and I love big.
My Motto in life is: THE WORLD OWES ME NOTHING."
