I am Sibusiso Klaas and I was born 25 August 1994.
I developed an enduring love for poetry when I was doing Grade 9 but when I was in Grade 10 I started attending poetry classes. I began writing poems for the Upstart newspaper when I was in Grade 8, in 2008.
When I am not writing poems I like to read.
I started school in 2001 at Samule Ntlebi Lower Primary, continued at N.V Cewu Higher Primary and then in 2008 moved to Nombulelo Secondary School, where I am now doing Grade 11.
I joined the poetry group because I love writing poems. I am shy so I like to express my feelings by writing them down. When I am not actually in school I like to attend extra classes so that I can get a lot of information. I get involved in many things so that I can see where I fit in. In 2008 I joined Upstart because I wanted to know how to write for newspapers and also to get experience of journalism. Maybe if I am good at it I can do it further in University.
I am a talkative, loving and caring person who does not like to see people sad. When I am around I make sure people laugh, and my friends tell me I should become a comedien.
My goal is to study at Rhodes University or the University of Cape Town, and when I finish school I will work and them help my community.
