Thandolwethu Gulwa is 16 years old. She’s in Grade 10 at the Christian and National Secondary Girls’ School, Oranje, Bloemfontein.
Thandolwethu grew up in a household of good speakers, writers and politicians, an environment which has influenced her writing as well as her decision to study Constitutional or International Law (and maybe become the next Adv. Thuli Madonsela).
Thadolwethu’s essay “A Better Life for All?” appears in the Paperight Young Writers’ Anthology 2013, a new multilingual literary anthology of original short stories, essays, poetry and illustrations by South African high school students.
