I am Siyabulela Mchila, most people call me Siya. I reside in Nyanga, Cape Town, Western Cape.
I have never loved reading but when I met FunDza in 2013 and read their stories. I started to love reading, even now I am not that attached to reading but I make sure a week doesn’t end without me reading a story, short story or poem. FunDza also inspired me to write. After my first piece was published, I got very excited and wrote more.
I am currently studying Education at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) and this is my second year. I am also in love with performing arts and youth development and community development.
My motto: When you are not pursuing your goal, you are literally committing spiritual suicide.
