Who is Nonhlanhla?

 

Born on the 30th November 1988, Nonhlanhla grew up in the South Western Township (Soweto) situated in Gauteng, South Africa. At the age 12, she lost her mother to an HIV related illness; her father died while still in her mother’s womb. After matriculating in 2004 she stayed at home for a year before leaving to pursue her studies at the University of Zululand where she obtained her undergraduate degree in B Com Banking & Honours in Business Management.

 

This 27 year old young woman is a published author of seven (7) books, three of which were written and published in 2013. Her first book, which she was honoured to have Buhle Dlamini do her Foreword on, Life Changes published in the United Kingdom in 2010, is a collection of motivational poems signifying the different phases in life we all go through. Like streams of water, so are our lives. Nonhlanhla takes us through some of those common moments which she personally experienced. Discovering the answers for the questions of life is never easy, nor is finding one’s purpose or anticipating what tomorrow holds. Nonhlanhla’s life is a testimony that brings to light her inspiration for overcoming all the odds stacked against her, especially when she felt like giving up.

 

Her second book: “Shades of My Brutality” is an autobiography consisting of 11 chapters of her very own journey in the seasons of life, sharing the valley and mountain top experiences of the past twenty four years. This books’ back page boasts reviews from Wendy Luhabe, Yvonne Kgame, Edith Venter, Rosie Motene, Masingita Masunga and Anusha Singh.

 

Fragile at heart, Nonhlanhla has survived many downfalls, gone through trials and tribulations, remained hopeful and emerged triumphant. A great dreamer, she passionately pursued the accomplishment of every goal, never resting till her good became better and her better became her best. Her third book is a short story about her mentor since varsity, Bridgette Ngobese who survived colon cancer, who was also fortunate enough to get fellow cancer survivor, Lillian Dube to do her Foreword.

 

She released her fourth book titled: “Overdue Resignation” which is a motivational work that speaks of the things and habits we perpetuate which should have long been abandoned. Chapters include: Growth-less Career, Futureless Relationships, Toxic Friendships, Unhealthy Talks, Selfish Desires, Addictions and Misusing the word “busy.” Legendary actress Vicky Kente did the Foreword. All four books were launched in 2013 under the umbrella theme 4 Books at 24 Years.

 

Her 5th book “A good woman/man but not a great partner” is a compilation of other people’s thoughts, with contributions from South Africa’s leading experts in the subject matter, i.e. Dr David Molapo, Yvonne Chaka Chaka,Dumisile Gwala, Dr Aaron Lechuti, Linda Yende, Zama Mkosi, Mr Jerry & Mrs Claudine Mofokeng, Thabo “Tbose” Mokwele, Dr Babalwa Funda, Felicia Buthelezi, and many more! The Foreword was done by Social Entrepreneur Wendy Luhabe, andlaunched in May 2014 under her trending theme “5 books at 25”.

 

She then launched her previous book title: “Township to City” with the tagline: VISION + PASSION = PURPOSE. The book speaks of the author’s road to becoming a Writer, Speaker, Producer, and Publicist as well as her journey to Film Making after receiving a partial bursary in the United States.
