Media personality Zizo Tshwete Open Up About Her Body Trauma
There’s a saying that says the more you keep quiet about something, the more it eats you away, slowly on the inside, but If you share your experiences your healing process starts, and by opening up, you heal others as well. Former Miss Teen SA Zizo Beda has motivated many of her fans by opening up about her traumatic past experiences.
On Sunday, Zizo took to Instagram a sexy black and white picture of herself in lingerie. She did this to educate her fans on self-love and how she overcame abuse. Her fans know that she hardly posts sensational pictures of herself but she took to Instagram and shared her journey.
The TV presenter caption her picture with “Before you pass judgment, can you see things from my perspective? Barely surviving (abuse), only to encounter it again repeatedly as a young adult, took any last hope I may have had for the goodness in people. You can only imagine the abyss I have had to crawl out of to know of self-love, let alone have the courage to allow myself to experience it. Yet, here I am. Celebrating for myself that, in fact, my vulnerability is is giving me back every inch of power that has ever been taken away from me.”
Zizo did not detail exactly what the come across was but she does admit crawling out of the place she was in she needed to be brave and today she is her celebrating herself. Her comments were filled with messages of support from some of Mzansi’s famous faces such as Anele Mdoda, Boity, and Unath.

BEFORE YOU PASS YOUR JUDGEMENT CAN YOU SEE THINGS FROM MY PERSPECTIVE: Nobody deserves to have their innocence taken away from them. NO MATTER WHAT. My body has carried that trauma for so many years. I couldn’t handle the pain as a ten year little girl I passed out. Never thought about it again until as a deeply broken adult who desperately needed to heal. Barely surviving that only to encounter it again repeatedly as a young adult took any last hope I may have had for the goodness in people. You can only imagine the abyss I have had to crawl out of to know of self-love let alone to have the courage to allow myself to experience it. Yet, here I am. Celebrating for myself that, in fact, my vulnerability is giving me back every inch of power that has ever been taken away from me. So instead of any judgement of how you think I should express myself about my life journey, could I submit for your consideration that you get to know me. As told by me. Maybe you would see more than a ‘respectful girl who is now showing her thighs’ and maybe the thought of a woman who has survived terrible hurt but has fought to restore her self-love in a healthy and balanced way could occur to you. 🦋 Cheers to everybody fighting with everything they have to have the life that they want – a life that places emphasis on the wellness of our spirit being too. ❤️ #ShakingAsIPost #NoMatterHowSlowly #HeartIsRacing #FightingEveryday #Growing #TrulyBlessed 🕯
