Asanda: Beauty and brains








Asanda Guwa during the FJP’s spring school
______________________________________

Asanda Guwa  was born in East London. A bubbly, friendly and outgoing person, Asanda like making jokes. She the type of person people are drawn to.
She values education, a value instilled in her by her grandmother who still inspires and motivates her. Asanda loves spending time with her family, because she never spent as much time with them as she was growing up.
She wants to make documentaries and tell stories of ordinary citizens because “each and everyone has got a story to tell".
Asanda spent most of formative years in boarding school, a situation she blames for the disconnect she appears to have with her mother.
But at least she interacted wtih different cultures and personalities and found school exciting and fun. "My second home," she called it.
Her grandmother taught her to love education.
And she does.
