When she started writing at the age of 11, many people said that she was wasting her time. Now Rolivhuwa Ramulifho has released her very own book, titled Vhutshilo Vhuakonda.

Ramulifho, who is from Ngwekhulu, loves writing short stories and poems. She fell in love with writing when she was still in primary school. At that time, she was reading profusely, and she felt really inspired by the kind of literature she read. Her passion for it started to develop more and more, and since then she has never looked back. “I don't even know if there's a story behind my being a writer, other than that I create stories through my own and the experiences of the people around me,” she said. “Everywhere I go, I see stories; stories that need my attention; stories to be written.”

“It was so amazing how I came to write my stories,” she said. “I grew up in an environment where I was the black sheep of the family, so pen and paper became my friends. I would write about everything that came to mind at that time; I would even create my imaginary family where I was loved.”

She believes that even the smallest acts of giving and kindness can make a world of difference. “There are times when, for no apparent reason, we cannot seem to find the joy, peace and happiness that we used to know. The challenges that young people and women face today at home, in the community and workplace, are immense,” Ramulifho said.

Vhutshilo Vhuakonda is a motivational book for young and old. When asked why she had written this book, Ramulifho said that many platforms to address issues existed, but that she had found that writing was the best platform to express her views. She said that she was assisted by businessman Rudzani Munonde, who helped with the financing to publish the book.
