"You have to be always drunk. That's all there is to it—it's the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk. But on what? Wine, poetry, or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk." - Charles Baudelaire. This quote will remain one of my favorites because it reminds me of the franticness of a world without art. As you may tell by now, I am an art geek, yes, I spend most of my time painting, writing, and reading. I drown in the beauty of music and film as well, there is a lot that comes from it. Nothing makes me more grounded or happier than an aesthetically pleasing experience, in many spectrums. It can be from a perfect cup of coffee with jazz and the sunset to a breathtaking mountain view in a backpacking adventure. I love finding inspiration and art in many ways there is, the world is my canvas.
Hello! This is my story.
I have had the privilege of graduating with a Bachelor of Arts Degree majoring in Philosophy and African Literature at The University of the Witwatersrand. I have been exposed to multi dynamics of courses in my undergraduate experience, mostly in European, Indian and African Literature. I have dedicated myself to taking an academic career in the prospects of being a lecturer at a professional level. I love teaching literature as it always opens up to many aspects to analyze. I recently published my first African literature novel called In the Midst of the Womb, it has been a blast, I will have talks and tours on it.
I hope to share with you what I have learnt as this is how my classes would be if I was lecturing at a tertiary literature class.
