Lori-anne Biebuyck Lori-Anne Biebuyck braced herself for the bad news. Having lost both her parents to cancer, her mammogram had doctors on high alert. Six biopsies later, they diagnosed Biebuyck with stage four breast cancer. The days that followed brought tears, chemotherapy, and hair loss. Biebuyck tried to hide it with wigs and scarves, but none of them felt right. Then her friend made her a hat.......... Rita du Plessis Growing up, Rita du Plessis felt enormous pressure to fit in. She has Asperger Syndrome, a developmental disorder on the autism spectrum. Though not uncommon, it's still widely misunderstood. Today, Du Plessis is drawing up her own definition of belonging with the animated film, Sam the Hedgehog. With her insightful critters, this artist is reframing ideas of normality. Tandekile Mkize Tandekile Mkize avoids stepping on the cracks. He isn’t superstitious. But in these spaces, flowers thrive. Nature’s ability to grow past the concrete holds deeper meaning for Mkize. He sees a resilience there – one he bears witness to every day. His photography represents the way people of colour confront adversity, only to push through and emerge stronger. Songelwa Sicuku-Mkita The only knowledge Songelwa Sicuku-Mkita had about her father came from rumours. He’d abandoned her family before she was born. And when Sicuku-Mkita was seven, her mother passed away. The young girl began spending afternoons on the sports field, drawn to the sense of family she encountered in team sport. Sicuku-Mkita says. With positive leaders guiding her and the support of a team, she took her passion for games and ran with it. Qden Blaauw Qden Blaauw wouldn’t be the pianist he is today if it wasn’t for his iPad. At the age of eight, he discovered a piano app and the wonder of classical music. The sounds of Beethoven, Bach, and Chopin rang out from the speaker. Blaauw was entranced. He tapped his fingers on the screen, keeping up with the melody. Soon, he was begging his parents for piano lessons. Just six years on from his first app recital, Blaauw is travelling the world as a classical pianist.
