- A teacher has shared an essay by her student, regarding Saffa's who want to emigrate, to Facebook.
- The post was shared to Facebook group #ImStaying and has gained over 5 000 reactions
- Facebook users shared their pride as many were brought to tears by the essay
In a beautifully worded essay to South Africans wanting to emigrate, young Joreke Kleynhans has brought tears to the eyes of many Facebook users. The untitled essay of the English First Additional Language learner has gone viral.
A picture of the 243 word essay accompanied by a small caption was shared to the Facebook group #ImStaying by Joreke's teacher (with permission of course). The essay describes life in Mzansi in a perfectly structured manner.
From describing the way the sunrays hit the Savannah to the emotions felt when Siya Kolisi lifted the Rugby World Cup, Joreke really knows how to warm hearts by the simple usage of adjectives.
The post has garnered 5 500 reactions, almost 700 shares and over 600 comments from prideful South African Facebookers. Here's some what some Stayers had to say to the young writer:
Ena Du Plessis wrote:
"Beautiful! Excellent work and lovely attitude, Joreke! And thank you Simone for sharing! The reference to the turckloads of goods sent to the Knysna fire victims, brought instant tears to my eyes..."
Dinky Bogatsu commented:
"Wow, it is an incredible piece of creative writing, infact, social messaging. You're right may we draw so much comfort... Future creative leaders."

"Brings tears to my eyes."
