A Briefly reader has shared an inspiring story about how her 12-year-old daughter overcame bullying and became an anti-bullying activist.
Nonjabulo Zulu was bullied about her dark skin colour at school and it broke her. According to her mother, the hurtful comments caused her much suffering and pain.
"They used to say she's black like a shoe polish."
But the young girl did not let the pain keep her down. She decided to start a campaign and stop bullying at schools.
The Grade 7 pupil is now a motivational speaker and radio presenter with her very own anti-bullying campaign. She goes to schools around her community to address the issue of bullying.
The multi-talented young lady is also a preacher and a violin player.
This Sunday she will be going to Rankuwa to motivate other kids and tell them what it means to be a symbol of African beauty.
