Interests

What I read

I read a lot of Feminist materials by bell hooks, Patricia Hill Collins and Pumla Dineo Gqola but I also love to indulge in novels by Toni Morrison and Zadie Smith. I am, however, currently reading some works by Charles Bukowski.

Side projects

I am also a freelance writer for Marie Claire South Africa and previously Now.co.za. My own musings on varied topics reside over at my Wordpress blog. I'm also a nail artist, teaching myself how to play the guitar and speak Japanese.
