Author - Amandla Didiza

My name, Amandla, has been so profusely and profoundly proclaimed by the past leaders of my country. I grew up in a small family of 4 in Queenstown, in the Eastern Province (Eastern Cape) in South Africa. I spent most of my early childhood days on the beautiful grounds of Queens College. I am currently a Law Student at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. I have had a piece titled “The Real Her” published in the NMMU Arts and Culture book called “Expressions within”, published August 2012. I have also been elected as the Chairperson of the Black Lawyers Association Student Chapter in 2012 and the President of NMMU Toastmasters in 2013. I am the founder of a Non-Profit Organization called the Nikilitha Foundation, which, in English, means “to give light”.
