Following the success of her previous book, You have a Purpose, in 2019, Tshauambea Ramukumba (27) of Dzingahe has now published her second book, titled Shades of Shock.
When Ramukumba was still young, she realised that she had a passion and a talent for writing. At the time, she was reading profusely and felt really inspired by the kind of literature she was exposed to. “I don’t even know if there’s a story behind my being a writer, other than that I started to create stories through my experiences and the experiences of the people around me. Everywhere I go, I see stories - stories that need my attention, waiting to be written. Pen and paper became my friends,” she said.
This second book, she said, was suitable for everyone, irrespective of the reader’s age, with the focus on encouraging, restoring and mending broken dreams and lives. “Shades of Shock was inspired by situations around me. The youth especially should read it carefully as the content might be able to help immensely in day-to-day life.”
She said that she was very thankful for the support she was getting from everyone. “It would mean a lot to me if the readers would provide feedback regarding the book to help me to improve as a writer.”
Ramukumba is a woman of faith, dedication and hard work. In her own life, she has endured hardships as well as happiness. She is very passionate about people and their well-being and has a mission in life to see people overcoming and succeeding, because she believes that we rise up by lifting up others.
She encourages the young generation to believe in themselves and their dreams and to never be shaken by anything. “Do whatever it takes to achieve your goals.”
