|Dialogue Artist-Kim Berman|
My name is Nicole Bernadette Hodnett and I am quiet. Many establish that through my inability to communicate at times. Whenever people get together I do my best to escape the situation, it used to be very overwhelming for me. I always stood in the shadows of my outspoken sisters. I am the youngest of five and today I describe myself as an outspoken and very irritating person at the best of times. My grade one teacher often describes me as a late bloomer in life.
It symbolises that yesterday, today and tomorrow will be forever tainted by influence.
I look up to Nelson Mandela for his fight against the struggles of Apartheid and showing people that we have the potential as a rainbow nation.
I feel it the duty of our ancestors not to pass the ills of the past to the generation where we are supposed to be born free.
