About

Welcome to all the news that’s fit to bling from me, the original Ugly Betty. I was born in a tiny village in Malawi, Africa. I grew up to broadcast to millions within the global village. That’s in spite of villains who told me I was too ugly and too stupid to achieve my dreams.

I showed them. What helped me is found within the pages of  my book, Starring in Your Own Life published by Simon & Schuster. You can read an excerpt at http://www.nozizwe.com. If you don’t want to get the book, here’s the take away.

 It’s all about the inner bling. And of yeah. You’ve got to fight for your right to sparkle.

    I enjoyed the snippets of you. Bento baby,bento. I want a Bento box too! I will have to look for one the next time I am in Philly. My daughter wants one as well. I am actually building a blog on blogspot … LOL! You are simply AMAZING. I really do miss you and will get in touch with you soon.

      That’s so groovy. I want to keep track of the bento progress of you and your daughter.
      I did a bit of research and found out that the 10th St hood in Philly is your best bet in terms of finding a bento.
      I have not bought an official one yet. I’ve been using a storage container from Crate & Barrel.
      In terms of size, look for one with a capacity of 350 ml. Stuff it with healthy food and you’ll have about 350 calories.
      Eventually I’d love to get the bento below and then get a more traditional lacquered one. But the truth is that all you need to start to bento is a container, Tupperware will do, a knife and a will to eat well.

      Oh, do fill me in when your blog is live.
