23 Jul We have a new show called #AskGiGi
Have you ever wanted to get advice but you were too afraid that you would get judged or be ridiculed for even having the issue in the first place?
That’s why we are starting the #AskGiGi webseries because every girl deserves a safe space.
In this digital landscape, minefield, we’re afraid of being screenshot or our messages getting forwarded to other people. Next thing you know your dirty laundry is all over the social media streets and everyone is in your business.
Do you need advice on some real issues? DM us your story & we will discuss it on #AskGiGi with @ThembiTerry & @buhlembambo. If you’d like to submit your story anonymously, use the link below, we won’t know it was you: https://t.co/mjMPjUXJ5T #GirlGrandeurZW #GirlTalkZW #AskGiGi pic.twitter.com/pyNoLiPUyw

How will #AskGiGi assist us with this?
#AskGiGi is a safe platform for you to share your stories and get realistic advice from Thembi and Buhle. Personal relationships nowadays are so strained that people are scared to trust and be truly vulnerable with one another. This platform allows you to get objective, unbiased and uncompromised advice from two different young women who will give you two viewpoints on the issue.
How will I submit my story anonymously?
Technology is an amazing thing! Girl Grandeur Zimbabwe has a CuriousCat account which allows you to post things anonymously. You don’t even have to create an account, that’s how anonymous it is. You simply click the link and submit your story/question and it will be shared into our CuriousCat inbox.

What if my story is stupid?
There’s no such thing as a stupid story. If a situation has you stressed out and all out of sorts then it’s not stupid. If it’s important to you, it’s important to us and we want to hear it. The one thing we have noticed is that there is nothing new under the sun. You aren’t the only one going through something and someone else can relate to your story.
The reason why we decided to have this show is so that everyone has a shoulder to lean on and a listening ear. A problem shared is a problem halved. Sometimes a problem can stress you out and you feel trapped because you can’t talk to anyone about it. This leads to loneliness and other mental health issues. We want to start talking about these taboo things and bring them into the light where they can’t haunt us anymore.
