The 20-year-old Rabelani Angelina Nekhudziga of Tshakhuma-Luvhalani village, has released her first book titled Life with what It Holds (Life is Journey) last year.
Rabelani is a third-year student in Physiology at the University of Free State, in Bloemfontein. She explained that she wrote the book after she started realising how many people took life for granted and don’t make use of the opportunities at their disposal.
“We are all on a journey called life and we need to be guided by our elders. They must remind us what life is really about and why it’s worth living your life as an individual. After seeing what people do and hearing what people say, I realized there was a need for people to see and hear my perspective, but my advice is more from the Bible,” said Nekhudzhiga.
The book is a two-in-one experience, as the first part consists of five inspirational chapters with a touch of religious introspection and Christianity. The second part comprises a poetry anthology.
She said the book is suitable for everyone, irrespective of the age groups. The book is her way of reaching out, as it is impossible to have personal conversations with each and everybody.
Nekhudzhiga said that she would be elated if readers provide feedback regarding the book, which will assist her in improving as a writer. She also challenges young people to not just sit and relax, but to think positive about life, as they are future leaders.
The book was published in August 2020 and printed by Gifted Publishers in Polokwane. Those who want a copy, can give her a call or send a text message to 063 601 9361.
