Sakhile Khanye | Miss Classique
My name means “TO BUILD” and I believe I am on my way to building my own empire! I started blogging when I was 18 and I used to do it for the fun of it! However, my perspective changed when I was nominated for the Zimbabwe Achievers Awards (ZAA) and Zimbabwe International Women Awards (ZIWA) in the same year. Although I did not win either award, I was glad to be nominated at all and this gave me a whole new motivation to be better and to improve my art of blogging. I felt honoured to be nominated because this meant that people actually read my blogs and appreciated my work. It gave me new confidence levels. Fast forward two years later, I won ZAA young achiever award 2017 and I have had speaking engagements, notably at the VOW Fundraising event in July 2017.
This Magazine is an opportunity to learn about the most amazing talent in our community. The magazine will come to you every quarter and you can get involved through advertising, sponsorship and guest blogging opportunities! Classique Q&A has featured on large news Networks such as Nehanda radio and we have also worked with one of Zimbabwe’s top journalist Lance Guma.
Many people have been asking about where I got the name CLASSIQUE from! It was given to me by one of my Nigerian friends. He used to spell it with a C at the end though (Classic) but being innovative as I am I decided to own it with a ‘Q’
When I started blogging, I used to receive so much negativity from my people in my circles. I was encouraged and motivated to continue when I learnt through my interviews with people who had been there, and now I realise whether you do good or bad people will just talk. I have learnt not to let people’s words get to me and if people are talking it means I’m doing something GREAT and interesting.
