My name is Phelokazi Tsoko I am 20 years old. I am doing grade 11 in Khayelitsha, in Cape Town. I’m originally from the Eastern Cape. I speak isiXhosa. I’m a talkative person and am curious about good things.
I’m an Equaliser from Equal Education (EE). I join EE in 2012. I was invited by my classmate Landile Sibeko. I have continued attending youth groups and have become an activist. In 2012 I joined a project that was based on filming. It’s called Amazwi Wethu (Our Voices). They teach us how to use the camera, how to edit etc. All the students in Amazwi Wethu come from different schools in Khayelithsa. In 2013 I made photo voice called Importance of Hygiene. And I was a character on a film called Siwe’s Journey (Sanitation in Khayelitsha). In 2014 I directed a film called Hear Me Out (Mob Justice in Khayelitsha). This year I worked behind the camera helping the Amazwi Wethu 2015 students with a film called Induku Ayiwakhi Umzi (isiXhosa idiom meaning bullying/beating does not build a house).
