BON­GELA

Marie Claire (South Africa) - - MY STYLISH LIFE -

I’m ex­cited to be work­ing on my not-so-new job as arts ed­i­tor for the Mail & Guardian. I’m also ex­cited about a pod­cast called ‘Af­ter Dead­line’ with some col­leagues from the pa­per. It’s a work in progress, but ba­si­cally talks about things we go through as women. I’ve also started shoot­ing a doc­u­men­tary about hair, black iden­tity and my na­tional his­tory in an ef­fort to un­der­stand who we are and why our lives are up­side down. It started the day I held my hair in my hands and asked my­self why I hated the way it felt. In my hand­bag, there’s al­ways Vase­line, lip­stick, my cell­phone charger, a novel and a notebook. On my most re­cent hol­i­day I went to Dull­stroom for a week­end. It was nice to breathe in dif­fer­ent air and not see any­body within a 10km ra­dius.
