The face of Travelling Toes.
As a writer and documentary filmmaker, as an adventurer and traveller, as a humanitarian, change-maker, visionary and as a young South African, I have found all parts of myself, barefoot, connected to our land and our people, not only physically, but also spiritually.
My tenacious, ambitious and energetic spirit gives me the ability and drive to do what most people cannot, or what most people fear to do - create the change.
I use the powerful medium of writing, filming, and video editing, to share my experiences and stories with the world around me.
I create and involve myself in community upliftment projects, while documenting the lives of certain individuals I meet along the way.
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail"
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I find myself falling deeper into the magnificence of our nation, our culture, and our land. I want to continue sharing the golden magic of who we are, as South Africans, and as humans, and what we are capable of, especially when united.
While I share these stories through my writing and short documentaries, I want to continue being a part of the physical, building earth homes for those without shelter.
Words can only say so much, short and sweet or long and endless, so rather watch a video or two, and feel for yourself.
If your eyes swell and tears leak, if your heart beats faster and you shiver with goose bumps, you have connected to the message.
It would be an absolute honor to be supported financially, so I can continue creating ripples wherever these toes travel to.
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
Why invest in me?
Because I am on a mission to be a part of the change we wish to see in the world.
I don't just talk the talk, I walk the walk.
This is not just an invitation to donate; this is an invitation for you to be a part of this movement, to join this new era where we move away from the separation of our past as we begin to rebuild the future of our nation, together.
Your generous actions make it possible for this new generation of young believers, catalysts, leaders and pioneers who believe in a strong, unified nation, to share their message and their story of hope.
This is your moment to be a part of the change we wish to see in our country, by investing in me and the story I have to share, with not only South Africans, but with the world.
We choose the destiny we want, we choose the world we want to live in, by our choices and our actions.
We only ever have this one moment, to make this one choice, to be a part of the change we wish to see in the world. One person at a time, one brick at a time – we build each other up, we build this wall up, and we build this nation up.
From the dust, we rise.
Together, we rise.
