Get to know Kopano Shimange
What are the 3 words you would use to describe yourself?
Inspired, curious, faith-filled
What is your biggest fear about the future?
I have two because I’ve already started writing it in my head haha, the one is “Eat cake, make money” (because I think in life you can have your cake and eat it, making money shouldn’t be difficult in today’s digital world, you can enjoy what you do and make money while doing it) and the other is “I Own My Time” (time is the most valuable thing we have and we tend to trade it for things that are less valuable, I believe I own my time and I’d like my story to help others own theirs)
What would be the title of your memoir and why?
“Sliding into home.” Basically finding myself, my voice and who I really am and my true purpose.
What is your definition of success?
Success to me is having the freedom to spend my time as I wish, doing what I want and having ample time to love my family and praise my God!
One fun fact about you?
Haha I’m such an open book I actually have to think about this one… my parents are farmers and they live on a farm with cows and I’m terrified of cows! I’m always scared that one is going to charge at me *hides*
