A high school pupil answered a question about what it is like attending an Afrikaans school.

Crystal Motoedi, a black student who attends an Afrikaans school she did not identify, took to her TikTok account (@_allthings.crystal) to answer whether it is boring to attend such a school.

The question may have been posed because white students typically attend Afrikaans schools, and the percentage of black students at the school is rather small.
