Meet Smart Girl – Tholakele Mbonani

Hello there! I’m Tholakele Mbonani from South Africa. I am a journalist; I am passionate about writing inspirational stories about ordinary people with a positive outlook on life. Nothing warms my heart more than sticking my nose in a well-written old book. I love fantasy books and the worlds they create; it’s amazing how far your mind can take you and the worlds you can travel to inside a book. I studied Journalism at the Tshwane University of Technology; I love the opportunity it has granted me to see life from other people’s perspectives. I am currently studying for a diploma in project management.
