My name is Clinton Johnson. I am 16 years old. I am a male with dreadlocks. I live in Johannesburg. This is my diary entry…


I live in Johannesburg (eJozi). Jozi is a nice place full of different people. Yesterday my mom got a phone from the hospital (Baragwanath). My father was admitted to the hospital two weeks back. He had collapsed.

The doctor said he had few months to live, because he had cancer. It’s sad because I’ve only just found out who my father is… it was six months ago. My mom said we had to see my father’s family… The problem is we don’t know where to start looking for them.

My dad used to tell that he had a brother who lived in the United States of America (Louisana). He used to tell me about how he was wealthy… I forgot to mention this my father is American.

Tell us: Would you like to find out what happens next in Clinton Johnson’s life and read more of his diary entries?
