After experiencing some of the worst things a girl child can encounter including multiple rape, depression, neglect and low self-esteem, her spirit relentlessly fought to keep searching for her truth. In her own words through interviews that capture her pre-launch moments ‘The Arrow that I was born with to guide me through the journey to my destiny, led and guided me out of situations good and bad; its golden sharp end served as a light in my darkest moments telling me that i was different but not less.’
PAYT our sister organizational trust in South Africa, has taken its milestones higher this year by publishing a talented writer Kentse Bardiwang, whose captivating story has been captured in an e-book titled Kattey’s Arrow.
In retrospect January of 2012 PAYT saw the publishing of our collaborative music project A Dollar a day. This year Kentse’s e-book that has been published as part of Lerato Mosimane’s ebook Collections http://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/GuyPublishing1 is going live on the launch date today .
Here’s a little something about this book by my acquaintance Kentse Bardiwang whom I can tell you is quite a charming being. Despite all trials and tribulations in her life this burgeoning, bubbly, joyful Tswana girl, has defied the odds and stood tall. As I was speaking to Kentse during her photo shoot, she told me, “I have written this book over 3 years and during that period of time I found my healing.” I mentioned looking forward to her reading during the E-book launch, to which replied, “Tshepo I do not think I will be able to ready any excerpt from my book it, the pain is overwhelms me.”
The author continues to say, ‘After 37 years following the Arrow, it finally led me to my destiny Dikgabo Village, a place of remarkable creatures. Just like Tajewo left home with his brother’s Arrow from the village to become a warrior. My arrow is my Spirit.’
Let’s just say this is a bold step in empowering the confident African woman. Kudos PAYT!
