Facebook Feedback Fridays: Your favourite Madiba memory
Born and bred in the Mother city, Leilah lives an average-Jane life in the quiet side of Cape Town suburbia. Her favourite things to do in Cape Town include getting sand in her Havaianas on the beach, and watching the bright city lights on Long Street at night.
Leilah heads up the Content Marketing team at iProspect, so naturally is addicted to all things digital. She is an avid Instagramer who "belongs" to the Igers Cape Town community, and collects memories of her city adventures (instameets) for her Instagram feed, as well as the feed of Cape Town Tourism.
"Instagram makes me see the world through different eyes," she says, yet insists she is not a hipster.
Every week we ask our fans on our I ♥ Cape Town Facebook page a question. And since it’s been a week from when we heard the tragic news of Madiba’s passing, we thought it would be fitting to ask the fans about their favourite Madiba memory.
To me, Nelson Mandela represents the visionary qualities that I look for in every leadership role. The difference between being a visionary leader and a militant one is that you inspire people to make a change – instead of ordering change. Madiba touched the lives of many because of his alternative leadership style; because true success is when you inspire others to do things differently. And that’s my favourite memory of him.
