Sivosethu Ndubela (Vovo) lives in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth. When she was orphaned at the age of 13, Tony Pearce, a family friend involved in an after-school dramatic arts project, became her guardian. A few years later she was diagnosed with a rare heart condition and underwent two open-heart surgeries.
"Even while you read about the harrowing realities of township life, you will be inspired by Vovo's resilience and optimism." Khaya Langa, author of These Things Really Do Happen to Me
