I am Debbie, I am Mme (which means mother in Sesotho) and I am Me. I am Mme to two beautiful daughters, Lerato aged 5.5 years and Nia aged 3.5 years. I am South African-born, from the beautiful city of Cape Town, but London, UK is what I've been calling my home for the past 7 years. I am a marketing professional with work experience in the FMCG sector and in a strategic brand and innovation agency but since starting a family my career has been somewhat on ice. I started blogging as the first step in doing more for me and living out my personal mantra of "courage in my diversity over mediocrity". This is my journey, this is Mme and Me.
