What got you into the content creation space?

When I started off as a model, that industry was still at the infant stage of diversification.

I was turned down at a lot of fashion show auditions and I didn’t get a lot of gigs that I applied for, it was a pretty helpless situation.

But I realized that I could create my own audience.

According to my research, Instagram was the best direction for the purpose of international reach.

I created an account and started posting as often as I could, one thing led to another, people took a liking to my content and boom, my follower statistics grew exponentially.

You’ve definitely done well in finding your niche and building your online community. How do you classify the type of content you share?

I would define it as positive living content.

I don’t only promote body positivity, but I also promote happiness in general.

My followers get a front row seat and see me living my best life happily, not allowing anything or anyone to slow me down or influence my opinion about myself.

This allows me to be relatable to not only the plus size community but people of all genders, sizes and ages.

LAB SCIENTIST BY DAY: Precious Mokotedi

They say you do what you love, and you will never work a day in your life.

I couldn’t agree more.

One of the things you vlog about is your travels. Which place can you say stood out the most?

I have been to Dubai four times and it definitely stood out from a lot of places I’ve traveled to.

The fast paced life was a culture shock and somebody said to me “money moves fast in Dubai”.

Everyone either goes there to spend or make money.

It almost feels like another world.

How are you able to travel so much considering your job as a Medical Lab Scientist?

I am currently practicing part time as a Lab Scientist.

Although most of my content is about fashion and travel, I am not always traveling.

When I do get time, I make sure to travel as much as I can though.

How do you finance your lifestyle?

My lifestyle is a result of planning, budgeting and saving.

My parents and siblings have supported me numerous times too.

Also, because of the popularity of social media marketing, most times it’s the local and international gigs I get that cover the logistics.

Growing up as a kid, what were you bullied for?

Obviously for being chubby.

Luckily I was smart so my classmates had to be careful if they wanted my help with homework.

I am sure you still come across such trolls online, how do you deal with the negative comments?

Block and move along.

Once you realize that strangers and cyber trolls don’t care who’s feelings they hurt online, the less you feel the need to lecture them on being nice.

I only ever hope that the positive energy on my page is contagious enough to bring out the best in everyone.

Any hidden talents?

I can put any baby to sleep!

Apparently this body of mine is super comfortable to lie on.

What is your annoying habit?

Popping pimples.

I am working on it though.

Luckily my acne subsided with the help of Le-Afrika organic soaps.

What would you change about yourself if you could?


I have a tendency to leave things to the last minute, but on the bright side I am a perfectionist and I work well under pressure, it’s usually a happy ending.

What is your relationship status?

I just got out of an amazing lengthy relationship so my love life is on a break.

Single and not searching!

Which celebrity would you rate as a perfect 10?

Palesa Molefe, even though I’ve never met her, she is really beautiful and seems like a gorgeous soul.

What is one message you would give to your supporters?

My online family knows I take breaks from social media as often as I can, they should too.

Social media is like junk food for the mind, it’s bountiful with very little nutrients.

Put down your phones and talk to the person next to you.

Lastly, Five things people don’t know about you?

  • I can’t whistle
  • I can’t sleep in clothes, i don’t know how anyone can!
  • I’m a pastor’s daughter
  • I’m dead scared of the dentist, thank God I have perfect teeth.
  • I am taller than I look in pictures. I am 1.8m which tends to shock people when they meet me in person.
