In 2012 a small publishing house in George recognized my talent to write poetry and my book, "Muses of Wandering Passions" was published and launched in October 2012, a few weeks later Peoples Post did an article on that publication. Now three years later I am about to launched my next book titled, "No Greater Love Than This" by the same publishing house KREATIV SA in George.
My aim through my books is to show other young people from our rural areas that it's not about where you come from, but where you going to. To reach for your dreams at all cost. To realize that not all of us come from wealthy backgrounds, but we work towards becoming better people and achieving our dreams. In 2014 I worked alongside an NGO to show case local poetry talent in the community of Steenberg I was one of the organizers of this event and what a great time people of the community had to see our artist and poets doing an amazing job in showcasing their gifted talents.
My name is Chimnese Davids, author and poet.
