How do we get through this trauma? |#Lifestyle |#Monique Strydom| Podcast


As we approach the 60 day mark of lockdown, how are we as a country doing emotionally? We have been in survival mode for weeks and how are we going to deal with this as a collective?

We caught up with Monique Strydom, hostage survivor of over 120 days, author, philanthropist, business woman and South African.

Monique shares with us what it took for her to survive as a hostage and what we collectively can do to help us deal with the present situation, which ultimately will write the future of tomorrow.
