My name is Thando and I’m the Mom and Blogger behind Modern Zulu Mom.  I started this blog in March 2015, with the intention of engaging modern mothers in real, meaningful conversations about our children, our cultures and all things parenting. I have an 8 year old son and a 1 year old daughter.

I am South African, born and raised in the township of Soweto. My biggest passion is family and developing people. I’m a learning and development specialist by day and a family-orientated Superwoman for the rest of the time. I blog as a dedication to my role as a mother who seeks continuous improvement and out of my love for growing and progressing others.

I love networking and collaborating with other parents and brands.
