In August 2016, I’ll be celebrating the 1 year anniversary of writing Multicultural Me. I’m going on this tour to read my book, share my stories and tell children how I use cartoons and comedy to make new friends.
I wish to show kids that if I can make friends anywhere in Australia and the world, then they can too!
My own story started in Zimbabwe. My character Sammy is inspired by my soccer-loving brothers and my hilarious experiences of life in Africa! I haven’t been to Zimbabwe since I published the book and I’m planning to give talks at my old primary and high schools.
I also have family in poor city areas and rural villages of Zimbabwe. I can’t solve their financial problems, but I can spark imagination and show that there is ALWAYS hope! (That’s my little niece Rufaro in the picture).
