I missed my family, friends, my home, but most importantly my freedom.

Language gives us the ability to connect, without language we wouldn’t be able to communicate feelings, solve problems and form complex communities. Due to the many diverse cultures and languages that we have in South Africa, barriers are often formed amongst certain communities and therefore language separates us. In order to help break down those barriers and reconcile the nation, the philosophy of Ubuntu is encouraged.
