Singer Lira on what empowers her…

 

 

South African music star Lira (on the verge of releasing her latest CD, “Born Free”) shares with Sophisticate’s Black Hair these inspiring words when we asked her: What would you say empowers you?

“I consciously take back my power. I’ve gone through the whole process of finding myself sort of taking on perceptions,” shares the gorgeous singer known for her signature Natural cut. “For instance, I realized my lack of confidence when I was coming up was because—before I could form my own opinion about what I think about myself—society already pumped in my head what the standard of beauty is. Learn to love what you are because there’s nothing out there that compares to you or who is like you and accept your uniqueness. I’m very conscious of not conforming or doing things without considering what I’m doing. It makes me much more empowered, I’m much happier; I live my own life by my own design. I like that.”
