"You are accorded the respect, from even elderly people, but then you have to reciprocate it and let them know that, you know, your father, like I said, is the King or now my auntie is the Queen mother," she said.
"And it's not about you, so you don't have to start stepping on people's faces and talking anyhow. You have to respect yourself if you want to enjoy that position," she added.

Below is the video of Dr Caryn's interview.
