I am proud to be speaking isiXhosa and it makes me feel bold. It reveals my true identity. IsiXhosa is my mother tongue. I am grateful to be a Xhosa young girl.

I grew up with this language and it has been a very good experience to speak Xhosa and to be a Xhosa girl. I would never forget isiXhosa.

It is easy for me to share my views in isiXhosa. I feel comfortable when I speak isiXhosa but that does not mean I will not try to speak other languages.
