How to Overcome Shyness
Step 1
Determine why you're shy in the first place. For example, are you scared of what someone might say about your physical appearance? Remember, there's an underlying reason for how you react in situations.

Step 2
Act as if you're not shy. In private, behave as if you're oozing confidence. Hold your chin up, stick your chest out, add a swagger to your walk and speak firmly. It may seem ridiculous, but you will see results when you're out in public.

Step 3
Practice making eye contact and smiling in your interactions with others. Strike up casual conversations with strangers about weather or current events.

Step 4
Look your best. One way to improve self-consciousness is to always look good and limit ways you can be self-critical.

Step 5
Lower your fear of rejection by imagining the worst possible outcome. If you approach someone, they may say "no" or they may just walk away. Absolutely everybody has been rejected at some point, but no one has to dwell on it.

Step 6
Look and learn. Watching friends or even strangers who aren't shy is a good way to learn some tips first-hand.

Step 7
Feel positive about yourself, don't get frustrated and have fun. Remember, the real goal is to find someone who will like you for who you are.

The spunky and fabulous Salome Damon who joined us in studio to chat about what’s been happening with her after her hit single “ I don’t want to know”. She mentioned she’s currently partnered up with two women, act called …Step sisters (excuse the missing word(s)). We then ended off the interview one of her latest singles called, “ I don’t wanna fight”.

We then were joined by Ludmila Ommundsen from Alliance Française Cape Town as well as Nwabisa Mayema from Township Patterns Non Profit. They joined us to speak about the exhibition taking place at Alliance Française in association with Township Patterns called “Art in the Street”.

Township Patterns is a South African company which markets and sells bags made by womens’ sewing cooperatives from the township of Khayelitsha and the Cape Flats of Manenberg. On the behalf of its Non-Profit arm, which trains, equips and supports the co-ops, Township Patterns has launched a fund-raising operation called “Art in the Street”.

  • Alliance Française was established in 1883 in Paris by eminent figures of the arts, the sciences, and politics to ensure the influence of the French language and culture around the world.

  • Alliance Française is the world’s largest French teaching centre with over 1,000 schools in 134 countries, serving over 350 000 students, sponsored by the French government.
    To find out more about Alliance Française visit them at 155 Loop Street, Cape Town or call 021 423 5699 and Township Patterns visit them at Studio 602 8 Kloof Street, Cape Town or contact them on 021 422 4830 /
Lastly we spoke to Locnville. A new age group consisting of New York born twins, Andrew and Brian Chaplin who are indeed related to the late Charlie Chaplin. They joined us to chat about their album called, “Retro Electro”. It’s a combination of slow hip hop (being big fans of hip hop) and electro-like samples and it wouldn’t be hip hop if there was no message in it. You’ll hear some rock coming through and a bit of drum n bass. To find out more about the debonair Chaplin twins check out their website coming out soon, I’ll keep you posted.
