Africa Reign: Khensani Mohlatlole

16-01

At only 17 years of age Khensani Mohlatlole has covered many a fashion show for her Blog Glitter Daiquiri and a reputable African Magazine. Khensani describes herself as a high school zombie from Johannesburg moonlighting as a cool kid on occasion. She is crazy about film, low art, prose and poetry and all these can be reflected on her blog.

I say a lot of things about fashion, photography and feminist rants on my blog, Glitter Daiquiri.

Khensani feels that Africa is arguably the wealthiest and richest continents in the world: not only mineral wealth but in its people, its histories and possibilities.”Africa Reign for me is basically about getting people to remember that we are rich and to utilize those riches”.

Glitter Betty is Khensani’s upcoming online store for the average South African girl who has assigned herself as “broke with expensive taste” and wants affordable fashion that is not seen on everyone. Glitter Betty promises to be your go to place for thrift clothes and some pretty rad jewelry. I am very optimistic and excited for Khensani’s future.

I don’t beleive that an African Dream needs to be build so much as I think it is all about abandoning concepts of what could be and then changing and bettering what is.

In realizing the African Dream or in trying to achieve the so called “Africa Dream” this youngster feels that is is too easy to get lost in narratives about some sort of cohesive future as opposed to making the most of your present.
