EREBB CONGRESS 2020: Keynote Animator # 2 – Candice Mama
We are excited to announce that Candice Mama is one of our Keynote Animators at the EREBB Congress in Cape Town.
Candice is a young woman who started her work in forgiveness, reconciliation and trauma after her story of forgiving apartheid assassin and her father’s murderer, Eugene De Kock, made international news.
Her life is dedicated to showing people how to not only survive pain, trauma or setbacks but to thrive. She is a Forgiveness Advocate and to her “Forgiveness is the healing balm of the human soul. To live is to forgive”.
She has recently written a book about her journey – Forgiveness Redefined. She has been named Vogue Magazine’s one of 33 Most Inspiring Women in the World alongside Michelle Obama and Malala. Candice will share her story and her insights on wellbeing, overcoming trauma and how we teach forgiveness to young people.
The human experience is filled with moments whereby we feel dejected, rejected or in pain and in many instances it’s due to no doing of our own. It is in those very moments that we need to make the choice to carry that pain forward for the rest of our lives or to free ourselves and in turn healCandice Mama
I have known severe pain and trauma throughout my life therefore I do not say it lightly when I say forgiveness is one of the most necessary life skills we can build in our lives
