For our international friends wondering where in SA I’m from?
I was born in the city of Bloemfontein in 1988. My hobbies consist of a variety of sports,listening to music gaming and learning new skills that might come in useful in the future.
Bloemfontein is the most central city in South Africa. The city falls within the province of the Free State. It is also known as the “City of roses”.The city’s population is approximately 350000 strong with mining and farming being its main industries.
It is probably one of the most “Afrikaans” cities in South Africa. The people from my home town are a very proud people.We have been raised to die for our country and to uphold our countries name at all costs.
My family name, Wessels, is from Netherlandish decent. Our family is documented to be one of the first families within South Africa dating back to the 1680’s.
Many South African’s are from different ethnicities and as many of you would have gathered by now most of the educated young working force is leaving our country as to not be tangled up in the politics of our corrupt government.(This is truely just my opinion). It is truly a shame for our country to not realise this as we all love our country but is not given the opportunities we deserve within our own country.
To conclude I am a proud South African. I may have my flaws because of the circumstances I found myself in my country during my growth as a person. I do realise my flaws and I work at them to be a better person.
