About that Tomboy lifestyle…

Shesatomboy-Location Telkom-Joan-1-9

Last month, we hosted a GIVEAWAY to reward one of our Facebook readers with a photo shoot. The feedback was amazing. Thank you to all the participants and all our readers for your compliments, comments and or suggestions.

Meet Ms. Joan, the winner….

How would you describe Joan?

I am an introvert, very shy, loner by birth. I act silly at times, joke and act serious in equal measure. I can be noisy and quiet depending on the occasion.I respect people’s choices and I just  love my freedom.Professionally I am a mathematician and a computer scientist. Above everything,I fear my God .

What do you like doing for fun?

I play soccer for my favorite team: Old is Gold Slum Youth (OGSY), a ladies soccer team in the Kenya women premier league .

How would describe your style?

My style is old school, yet multi generational and current as well .I dress down most of the time . My favorite color is white, half if not all the time, you will find me in a white t-shirt and or vest. Except when am in bed (am tempted to ask what her sleep wear looks like, dear curiosity stay put)

Why this style?

It’s simple,easy to manage and very comfortable.

What do your friends and family think about your style?

My friends are fascinated and think I am a unique person.My family respects my style….my younger sister never gets enough of it

Any favorite attire?

I am very unpredictable on that, though Jeans and t-shirts would pass for any-day. A watch is a must have. I put on dresses on special occasions i.e to friends weddings.  Skirts are for indoor weekends

What do you think about She’s A Tomboy?

It’s a good platform to encourage Tomboys to be proud and comfortable in themselves and that there is nothing wrong with them and to teach the world to embrace diversity in this unique ,unspoken wardrobe that is commonly mistaken.

Anything we can improve?

 You are on the right track, it’s just a matter of time for this to be the next big thing …

  4. Read this and “more of this please” is what is on my mind. There are (tomboys) so misunderstood and I believe this platform enables them air out and correct the notions, big up Rael and your crew … more please

      1. Wow!! love that…*infectious smile*. one last question @She’satomboy and joan , does being a tomboy mean that you cannot put on girly things e.g. make up, dresses, skirts etc and if not, kindly make the meaning clear
