South Africa is the place I was born. Where most of my family comes from. Where my parents and grandparents are. Where my longest friendships were forged. It is where I learnt about injustice, passion, fear, community, hatred, loyalty, distrust and forgiveness. It is where I have felt the safest when I was at my lowest. It is where I feel the safest when I need to recharge. Mountains. Beaches. Space. Sun. A buzz of desire to create a better world. Obstacles. Frustration. Anxiety. A place with a raw intensity that can learn from and teach the world.
