AU­THOR, Yolisa Mag­i­bile, said she was con­cerned with how mul­ti­tudes of women were still bro­ken in so­ci­ety.

Her book, Word Your Worth, is all about giv­ing valu­able ad­vice to women on re­gain­ing strength af­ter a set­back.

The Bloemfontein-based med­i­cal sci­en­tist said re­al­is­ing the strength of women was the sole rea­son that prompted her to pen her first book.

“As a young woman I re­alised that the power of woman has to start with me and I have to pass it to all women out there that we can ac­tu­ally change the world out there,” Mag­i­bile said.

The 24-year-old Queen­stown born, whose work is to con­duct re­search aimed at im­prov­ing over­all hu­man health, said she was also an evan­ge­list and a mo­ti­va­tional speaker.

“To all women out there, it is never too late for a heart­bro­ken woman to re­cover as it needs an in­spec­tion of the sit­u­a­tion that pushed her there and how to move for­ward,” she said.

“Word Your Worth is a tool to help women de­vise ef­fec­tive ways to help them­selves, young and old es­pe­cially those on the cut­ting edge in every area of their lives.

“The book is also about the ag­gres­sive­ness use of word of God to un­cover peo­ple’s true val­ues prac­ti­cal spir­i­tual chal­lenge, an ex­er­cise of faith, a war­fare for a woman who wants to si­lence any word from the en­emy,” Mag­i­bile said.

She said that with the use of a pow­er­ful weapon such as a word, one can de­clare in prayer, praise or wor­ship in or­der to max­imise their Godly po­ten­tial and be on the cut­ting edge of in­flu­ence in their sur­round­ings.

She said she was also in­ter­ested in writ­ing when she was still at KwaKo­mani Com­pre­hen­sive School.

“I re­mem­ber walk­ing to school every day and when I got tired I would sit un­der a tree and read a dic­tio­nary be­cause all I wanted to do was to in­crease my vo­cab­u­lary and im­prove my English so that I don’t have to be em­bar­rassed when I as­so­ciate with stu­dents from mul­tira­cial schools.

Lit­tle did I know that read­ing would be­come a habit and even­tu­ally im­print­ing my love for writ­ing,” Mag­i­bile said.

She said the chal­lenges for any pi­o­neer are re­ally de­fined but her big­gest chal­lenge was that of not hav­ing ac­cess to young lo­cal writ­ers who walked the path to guide her and ad­vise her what to do next and how to go about get­ting a pub­lisher.

“Hence I ended up do­ing self-pub­lish­ing of the book, this is just the be­gin­ning the best is still yet to come,” Mag­i­bile said adding that the book was avail­able at Life­style books in Mi­mosa Mall, Bloemfontein or or­der through email yolisam­ag­i­

NEVER TOO LATE: Au­thor Yolisa Mag­i­bile re­alised long ago that her power lay within her­self and her book speaks of how to achieve that.
