“My name is Patrick Chabedi Seleka, I’m 19 years old and I’m an artist. I love writing poems and entertaining people. I’m from a small township called Seshego in Limpopo. I’m fun to be with and love making jokes, seeing people smile makes my day. I hate people who lie or hurt other people because we were meant to live together in harmony. I’d love to see myself winning an Oscar one day, it doesn’t matter how long it takes.”
