Akhia Andersson, 18 years old- Bryanston, Johannesburg

Without the end of apartheid firstly I probably wouldn’t have been born, and if I was born I wouldn’t be in South Africa and I would never have met my boyfriend, who is white, and if I had he would be a completely different person. The impact of that is huge. So being able to appreciate what I have and compare it to before, even if people are less fortunate they are still able to interact and mingle with different races and different backgrounds, that’s really important, that’s really amazing.”
