What is your favorite book and why

Born a Crime by Trevor Noah. Why? “I became a chameleon. My colour didn’t change, but I could change your perception of my colour. If you spoke Zulu, I replied to you in Zulu. If you spoke to me I in Tswana, I replied to you in Tswana. Maybe I didn’t look like you, but if I spoke like you, I was you”. I like this book because it taught me how one can navigate the world while being different and yet find your fit while staying true to yourself.

What songs do I currently have on repeat

Which season [ Autumn, Spring, Summer or Winter ] best describes you

Spring describes me best. I am a very warm and bubbly person, yet even though it is all cute I still require patience as I like taking my time warming up to people.

In the event of an emergency home evacuation , what is the first item you grab

You are not ready for this one. I will grab Doudoune(my childhood teddy bear), at my big age I cannot survive without it, I literary take it on each and every one of my trips be it short or long. We are inseparable.

Which historical figures would you like to meet and why

I would like to meet Ndabaga. She really was living proof that women can be as great as men are and a great example of pursuing your set goals.

What makes a good blog

The blogger’s voice. Readers and followers really pick on this and can feel welcomed or just not interested based on your voice.

Back to the past or forward to the future

Definitely, the future. The past 6 years of my life each one after the other felt like real rock bottom but the following one gets even worse, I don’t think I am fit to redo it again. I will face the future head up.

Your proudest moment

In 2016, my uni hosted an exchange professor offering a creative writing class but to only 20 students were to attend the course. There were almost 200 applicants and we had to submit written material for admission. That admission email is the reason I blog today.
