Refilwe Legwale says “I love giving back to my community and it gives me great pleasure to be involved in this pageant. It is an opportunity that is being brought to home in such a safe environment for them!
For centuries, the greatest thinkers have suggested that “If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody”.
This gravitates to happiness found in helping others.
Speaking to the publication a 30 year old vibrant and driven Refilwe Legwale from a small village called Pella near Rustenburg , north West fits the clove for giving back to the community.
She is a graduate holding a degree in Somatology, in the health and beauty industry.
“I absolutely love the industry im in and looking to make a mark in the industry.
Legwale is the Owner of Obliss Serenity Spa (Obliss Haven) which is a day and mobile Spa based at Rametsi Eco Game lodge in Lindleyspoort, Swartruggens.
“We are considered the best by our clients and my passion for the industry is a driving force on every responsibility that i have”.
“Our Spa is a haven for our guests. Therapies for an example massages are not a luxury but a necessity to a healthier lifestyle”
“I love working on guests and ultimately changing their skin and making them love and appreciate their bodies. We also give our best in our healing work because thats what our Holistic therapies do, they heal. We want you to walk in and walk out feeling like you just got yourself a new body and soul”. She ponders!
The biggest challenge of life is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else.
” I think being a young woman in a rural village is a challenge itself. I have experienced that a lot of education is needed for people to understand the importance and health benefits that come with complementary therapies. The other biggest challenge would be marketing resulting in bringing feet in the spa and increase revenue. Its a new journey and has been beautiful and difficult at times but im hopeful and ready for great things to come”.
“I started my business last year December. Health and wellness are very close to my heart so i wanted to bring it closer to home. I believe that your body has the ability to heal itself given the chance and my passion for the industry pushes me to see a better change in the way our industry is. To improve livelihoods of spa therapists. Said Legwale.
Its believed Legwale draws a lot of inspiration from people that she cross paths with wanting to make changes in the spaces they are in.
“I want to bring facilities and activities to the young ones in the disadvantaged communities. Having grown up in the rural area, I also experienced the disadvantages. That is what pushes me. We also started a hang out spot under Obliss Haven which is called Kream Chillaz in Pella. We come up with creativity and fun activities for people to come relax and chill with us”. She said.
A gift that touches the heart ignites the soul with flames of passion.
“I love giving back to my community and it gives me great pleasure to be involved in this pageant. It is an opportunity that is being brought to home in such a safe environment for them. My role would be giving motivation and of course experience in the Spa world.
The Queen( Face of North 21) would then come and experience us and the importance of self care and wellness at a young age”. She added.
When asked if models are given enough platform in modelling industry especially in the rural area she said
” It is not enough especially in the rural areas under Rustenburg.
There is a lot of talent getting wasted because people dont have the right information, those who do sometimes dont have the means to travel to Gauteng for such opportunities. Parents are also wary of their children traveling that side because of all the horrific stories we hear and read about” she sighed!
In conclusion she said “I believe you can be anything you want and you are already half way there. Nothing can stop a determined heart and mind. Also Do not let the challenges get you down, do what you love and have fun doing it.
