So the Future Journalist Programme participants have been my family for the past 10 days. All too soon we've come to the end of the programme and I have to say farewell to my new family and my new second home, South Africa. I can't comprehend that I am no longer going to see Nandisa catwalking and saying 1ooo words per second and being fabulous, Sim breathing down my neck and shouting, Moagisi's lovely figure and fierce look, Andile's wonderful smile, Zuki's dancing and shouting, Amanda trying to be a lady, Colin being "Colin", Anelle being happy all the time, Jeff wearing sleevelss shirts in winter, Lucky running out of quota and being logged out, Sophiane buying wings and wondering off without anyone knowing where she is, Samu being her cute self, my naija brother Peter being a sweet gentleman, Ongezwa being quiet and keeping to herself, Jane coming up with her one liners, Nadi being jolly, D-bongz doing his own thing all the time, Masebe's lovely dreads and finally my darling Lwando who's always got all the time and patience in the world for me. I am going to miss everyone immensly.
The FJP has been an enlightening, educative, entertaining and a real eye-opener. I will forever be grateful to Highway Africa and FJP for this wonderful experience. I shall cherish the memories forever. By: Selina Bebaako-Mensah Pic: Selina Bebaako-Mensah
