Writing this book has been a great privilege. It has been a journey, a series of travels across South Africa into the lives of truly inspirational South Africans.
I travelled more than 13 000 kilometres, accompanied by photographer Pep Bonet and his assistant Joan Roig. From the beautiful Mother City of Cape Town to the lush sugar plantations of KwaZulu-Natal. From the bright lights of Sandton and the tough streets of Johannesburg to rural communities in Mpumalanga. The purpose of the trip was to seek out the best of the human spirit, stories of hope, of endurance and of perseverance.
We have chosen to feature 27 individuals – we could easily have documented hundreds more. The stories are endless, and once we began, many more remarkable individuals crossed our path. These stories give you a glimpse into the lives of individuals across this beautiful country. Individuals who have dared to live their passion, individuals who have put the wellbeing of others before their own and in doing so, have touched humanity.
