AUTHOR CELESTE LOUBSER
I am a 27- year-old principal, brand ambassador, writer, Vlogger, public speaker, MC, social influencer, wife, mom, photogenic model, dancer, choreographer and a passionate difference maker in Fourways, Johannesburg. I want to inspire people and change lives with this motivational journal,”The things I never said”. This book is different to any other book you will ever read. I am a proud wife and mom. My daughter taught me that after every storm, there is a rainbow. The difficult times we go through will pass. I believe that gratitude is the secret of life and kindness is magic. I embrace every obstacle that comes my way. I see it as a challenge to improve. I speak for those who can’t speak for themselves. I believe that empowered women empower other women. The best advice I have to offer is to stay humble and you will never stumble. Everything I do in life, I do for those who can’t. My biggest inspiration in my life was my disabled sister who passed on recently. She changed my life in so many significant ways. I am who I am today because of her. Monique, this book is for you. You will forever be our always. I am a very passionate anti-bullying ambassador for S.W.I.T.C.H (Standing with Individuals to Change Hurt). I was bullied severely when I was younger and now I can change that hurt into power by making a difference in the lives of our youth. I have been an ambassador for a few years now encouraging students to create awareness against bullying in schools. I do support different charities every year to give back to the community and set a good example. The youth of today is tomorrow’s future and I want them to be encouraged by young ladies like myself to be passionate difference makers and to bring the change they want to see in this world. To make a difference alone is nothing, but to do it with passionate people is everything. I am fortunate enough to be a part of the education system and believe in the famous words of Nelson Mandela that education is indeed the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world. I want to show my daughter that nothing is impossible and that I am strong enough to get through anything. I want her to grow up, knowing, that we become our thoughts and therefore, we need to change the way we think. Change your thoughts, change your life. My husband’s encouraging words is what motivated me to publish this book. He told me “some you win, some you learn”. I am excited to embark on this journey. The exciting part is, we don’t know what tomorrow has in store for us. It is not promised. We need to be grateful for every day! This book represents the true reflection of my soul. I embark on this amazing life journey in order to become the best version of myself. This book is a motivational journal that inspires, motivates and challenges every part of your being. There are solutions to every obstacle we face in life. I share my experiences in this book and I give guidance how to get through it. Perspective is everything. Change your perspective, change your life.
P.S My birthstone is definitely a coffee bean.
