“I believe anybody can do anything. Charity is small bits that we do every single day – it doesn’t have to be anything huge.” Zaheerah Bham-Ismail
You are so going to enjoy this episode. Zaheerah was genuine, inspiring and she went deep!!!
Her advice to the youth: “Stay grounded.” Living in the age of the digital fishbowl, it’s easy to get lost in the hype and try to fit in. However, Zaheerah encourages them that it’s actually better to be different and stand out. She advises the parents within her generation to spend quality time with their families, even if it’s spent doing the simplest of things.
Her life motto: “Live for now.” Acknowledging that life is temporary and that there are no guarantees, Zaheerah makes the most of every moment and teaches her girls to harness the ‘power of now’.
Zaheerah would like to be remembered as someone who tried her best. The women she’s inspired and the charity groups she supports will emphatically bear testimony to this fact.
Even if you’ve met her for the briefest of moments, Zaheerah Bham-Ismail is someone who will leave a lasting and magnetic impression on you. The notable media presence and philanthropic legacy she’s built is a stepping stone for women in South Africa, proving that with the right attitude and dedication, we can achieve anything. Family-orientated career girl, goal-digger, dynamic orator, selfless social worker and overall superwoman, Zaheerah plays many roles, each one with grace and honourability.
