THULANI My name is Thulani Shoko and I am from Zimbabwe which is in Southern Africa. I have been living in the UK for 10 years. 

 ALI Do you have a passion or vocation in life?

THULANI My passion in life is books I love literature. Currently I’m writing a book and I hope there’ll be plenty to follow it. The book I am working on at the moment is a comedy and has no title as yet. It’s a half fiction half truth book about growing up in Africa and then coming here. In the book I write about the culture shock I experienced when I got here, I mainly compare my school life here and back in Africa. All the characters are inspired by real people. I had to change a few things to avoid being sued!! 

ALI A quote from  Diana Vreeland – “The only real elegance is in the mind; if you’ve got that, the rest really comes from it.” What is elegance for you?

THULANI  Elegance is confidence. With enough confidence anything is possible.

ALI What do you appreciate most?

THULANI  In life I appreciate my freedom of expression the most, whether its by speech or by what I wear.
