Shudufhadzo Musida, Miss South Africa, has published a children's book named Shudu Finds Her Magic. By the end of August, the book will be accessible in six languages and in bookshops around the country.
This week, Shudu and Wits University received some backlash on social media. Musida was accused of receiving special treatment at the institution.
“There are some moments in your life that you dream of but then to see it in real life, something concrete, something to hold,” the Wits University and University of Pretoria graduate wrote on Instagram to share the news with her over 427 000 followers. “Wow, that's impressive.”
Shudu's personal experience of being bullied as a child inspired the book, which will be published by Jacana Media.
“It gives me great pleasure and satisfaction to deliver this book, which I wrote and which Chantelle and Burgen Thorne beautifully illustrated.
A bit of my heart was captured on a page, and it was written with children in mind. A tale of adversity and hope. Shudu spoke on falling down and getting back up, as well as the incredible journey we call life.
Toward the end of August, the book will be available in six languages in bookstores across the country and online.
“I hope that by reading my tale, you will realize that you are not alone, that you are important, and that the world needs you! “We were never meant to be perfect, and that is what makes us so unique,” she added.
Shudu is also a mental health advocate. On Monday evenings at 19h00, she broadcasts Mindful Mondays, a show on Instagram where she interviews various experts on a variety of issues relating to the subject.
The presentation is co-hosted by the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG).
