Dr Nomonde Mqhayi-Mbambo is a medical doctor who is a senior manager in health, a wife to a reverend, a mother, a trained facilitator, mentor and director of Ziqonde Journey to Self. Ziqonde is a Xhosa word that means "know yourself”. Ziqonde was born out of a personal struggle that was overcome by a realisation that it is not what happens to you that matters, but how you respond to what happens to you. This is what matters. We want women to understand that the power to unleash one's potential lies in self-knowledge and understanding.
