In light of the latest Embrace All Sides campaign, our favourite brand of spirit coolers, Vawter Hard Seltzer, has teamed up with the beloved winners of Love Island South Africa season 1, Thimna Shooto and Libho Geza. Chatting to the lovely couple we learn about how they live life with balance and how they embrace the many sides of themselves and each other. From working out to chilling out, Thimna and Libho also reveal one unexpected fact about themselves that not many people know about in this exciting QnA collaboration. Let’s dive in!
What does living life with balance mean to you?
To us, living life with balance means being able to enjoy life, live guilt-free and show up for yourself by following through with your commitments.
Name one thing you think you are most known for and that people love the most about you?
We’re known mostly for being on television and winning Season 1 of Love Island South Africa. People love that we embody holistic people. We take care of ourselves and are disciplined.
Besides working, what other activity’s do you love doing for fun, relaxation etc.
We love trying new things, travelling and going to the beach.
Tell us one unexpected thing that not many people know about you? Something that not many people know that you are interested in or love doing?
Not many people know that Libho’s fave movie is Hairspray and he loves singing along to the soundtrack. Thimna used to hunt birds for sport at a young age.
Why do you think it’s important for people to embrace the many different sides/facets of themselves?
We think that being a holistic person is very fulfilling. Knowing yourself and truly embracing and loving the different sides of yourself helps you lead your own life and destiny and makes you truly content in life.
Why do you think it’s important for everyone to live with balance?
Balance brings peace and security to oneself. It is so important to tap into as many aspects of your life as possible.
What helps you achieve balance in your life?
Prioritising the different aspects of our lives and making space to enjoy our different sides.
Tell us the most outrageous thing you have done that no one would have expected you to do?
We recently climbed a 30m ride that dropped at 100km per hour on top of a 26-floor hotel in Cape Town. Thimna is afraid of heights, so it was a nerve-wracking experience for her, but so worth it!
What does Living Life on the Light Side mean to you?
To us, Living Life on the Light Sides means not taking everything too seriously and being able to laugh at each other and ourselves.
