I am from a place where becoming a doctor, a teacher, or a lawyer are the only valid dreams.
A place where creativity and art are for those who sit at the back, whose biggest struggle is maths.
I am from a place you are constantly reminded passion does not pay the bills.
Job security becomes your everyday song and daily bread.
Your feet dance according to the rhythm of money.
So that you can at least pay some of the bills because that is what life is about…
not reaching your dreams.
I am from Mtunzini.
