Meet our first group of budding bloggers!

Friday the 10th of May saw us venturing out into Makhaza in Khayelitsha to meet our first group of 10 budding bloggers. It was a beautiful inviting sunny afternoon where we got to know each other.

A Telkom cable theft incident prevented us from getting into the labs and onto computers and getting started on the internet.

At The Travelling Speech Bubble we believe that setbacks are a launching pad for a new way of working, so we re-designed the day to accomodate this unexpected occurence.

We packed a picnic and asked the students of IKAMVAYOUTH (Makhaza branch) to choose a spot where we could sit in the sun and enjoy our picnic.

After an excited buzz of chitter chatter the soon to be bloggers escorted us to the spot. The guards of the chosen location were not convinced of our request and suggested we get a 1.5l bottle of cooldrink which would help the decision making process. We nominated the fastest young one in the group to go and get the drink of choice.

This seemed to be a fitting exchange!

While Vuyani, ran as fast as he could to the nearest shop where the cooldrink of choice could be found, we laid out our blankets and got ready to begin!

We placed our offerings forward and we opened up about what fuels us. Where our passions lie.

We later handed each of our pre-selected participants an envelope to fill in and reflect on. They were also asked to write a letter to their future selves (which will be handed to them upon completion of the workshop).
