The magic of the world around me by sanelisiwe buso


Name: Sanelisiwe Buso

Country Representing: South Africa

Storytelling is a way that most African cultures pass down their customs, beliefs and their history. I believe that this will be a way we can carry on with our cultural values so that they’re not lost in this now digital world.

what does storytelling mean to you?

I am a person who is not very talkative and am socially awkward. Creative writing and storytelling gives me the voice I lack in my social life. As a result, I take every opportunity I get to be expressive.

There is a poverty narrative when people talk about African villages. This was my way of showing that beyond what the world sees as poverty, lies beauty in nature, people and humanity.
