Congrats mom!! :-)

So proud of my mom, Janet Buckland, who scooped Woman of the Year in Cape Town last night. She received the award for her work in developing the arts and uplifting communities in the Eastern Cape via her drama company UBOM! and the dance projects she runs in the local township. UBOM! brings together actors from the local community in Grahamstown and Rhodes University for performances across the Eastern Cape . Proud of ya gogo!! 🙂

    Wow – even I am proud of your mom! Well done to her, and the rest of the UBOM! team.

    It takes lots dedication and passion over many years, with loads of hard work – so an award like this just well deserved!
