Hey, I'm Lieschen!

South Africa

Perhaps the best way to describe myself concisely would be to start of with a few basic words that encapsulate me: Curious. Adventurous. Feminine. Perfectionist. Lover of poetry,music and photography. Fluent in Afrikaans and English.

I'm a 20 year old student afraid of missing out on what life has to offer. I dream of travelling the world and reading libraries full of books. Right now, my mission in life is to complete my degree in Socio Informatics, to make the most of my varsity life and hopefully make memories that will last a lifetime.

I realise that as a reader the significance of this blog may as of yet seem rather unknown to you. Allow me to explain.. I grew up in a home where my mother had always been proud of being a woman, teaching my sister and I the correct manner and etiquette that she had thought apt for us as growing young ladies. My father, in my eyes, always being a true gentleman, had reinforced the rules my mother had lived by, by treating us as little girls and my mother with the respect a lady deserves. Being a grown woman, I have now realised that our home was but a microcosm of perhaps a world that people are no longer aware of. In the 21st century, I believe people have forgotten what it means to be true ladies and gentleman. In this blog, I would like to highlight the virtues I believe all women should stive for and live by. Being a woman is something to be proud of and unless one is proud of it, men won't treat you with the respect you deserve. Join my journey as I myself continue to discover the worth of a woman in the 21st century whilst simultaneously loving life and capturing moments of elegance and excellence.
