South African Story 1
name is Bulelwa Runyjwens,
born on the 24th of July 1981. I live in New Brighton Township (Port Elizabeth,
South Africa). I am presently doing my first year at the Port Elizabeth
I love myself, some people call me a narcissist but I don't mind that
because i am one. I'm always optimistic in everything i do. I'm a presbyterian

I've recently had sleepless nights, wondering why I had 2 go 2 school.
I twist and turn all night long wondering whether this schooling business

But through all that, i still feel i owe it 2 her to make something out
of my life because she's always had dreams of my success.
As a very optimistic person, i think i can just overpower all of the negative
thoughts that run through my head and do this one thing my mom expects
of me to do.
Make her proud.
