In 2020 during Lockdown Lindokuhle found herself stuck in her apartment, her companion a copy of “Those who travel meet Themselves” whilst she adjusted to the lockdown like most people across the world she struggled with the uncertainty that the lockdown presented as days turned into weeks and weeks into months of the unknown. In this time, we were not allowed to travel, go to the park let alone go for a walk in our street and so she began to travel through the stories that each page represented in the book. She laughed, she cried as she travelled with each person through their setback’s losses and triumphs.
The fact that these stories were from other young black and brown people such as herself gave Lindokuhle purpose and reason to believe that she too, could take some time out to go on a trip even though she is a student. In the months that followed she saved up and found cost effective accommodation and transport for her to visit Sodwana a town she had never been to before.
You can listen to Lindokuhle here as she shares her story with us.
Her story reminds us that anything is possible as long as we put our minds to it.
