Inquisitive as they come, very conscious and driven by the vim of triumph and prodigy. Thabo Moyo is a benevolent and an esoteric daylight dreamer who is studying BSc in Mathematical science at the University of the Witwatersrand, a bibliophile infatuated by books and literature and a debater. He grew up in Wattville and later moved to Tsakane with his parents and two younger siblings when he was in grade 9. He started being conscious of leadership and books during his incipient primary school days impervious of teachers and neighbours . Leadership was a wondrous burden because by default he had to do better so as to maintain the notion of leadership. In high school he joined debate and a book club, such gave way to his growth from being a relegated grade 8 to the Deputy president in grade 9, and finally President in grade 10.

Michelle Moswane is a young woman who believes in inspiring others and in lending a hand into shaping young African children into better beings that will contribute to a better society. She believes that the culture of reading is one necessary tool when it comes to acquiring information. Her mission with Club Readership is to introduce as many black children into the culture of reading as possible. To share with them how reading has shaped my being, my thinking and how I navigate and understand the world. To expose the black child to stories written by Africans for Africans, stories that do not only portray Africa as a place of poverty, hunger, and war. As Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie puts it “Stories can break the dignity of a people. But they can also repair that broken dignity.” It is time African child, to start telling your own stories and restore your dignity and that of your people.
Kgothatso Dinalaloves Jesus with all her heart and fears God because she believes that's where wisdom begins. She was born in Dennilton (Mpumalanga) and was raised by her grandmother until she finished primary school (Moteti Primary) then she moved to Benoni to live with her mother. She started high school at Dalpark Learning Academy(DLA) and later moved to Ephes Mamkeli Sec School. Being a rural girl all she had to read or study was her textbook. Attending at DLA did not make things any easier, she still wasn't motivated enough to start reading, she was surrounded by spoilt rich kids who just wanted to finish matric. Everything changed when she moved to Ephes, she got more than inspired to read because people were reading and Michelle Moswane really played a big role in getting her to read and today she is acquainted with diction.
