'Words can change worlds' says Toni, who adds that she is inspired by poets like Malika Ndlovu, Primrose and Winslow Schalkwyk. She offers sound advice to young aspiring writers; firstly find a mentor and secondly explore your interests and learn how they feed into your writing.
'If you have come to save me,
you are wasting your time.
If you have come because
your liberation is locked up in mine,
then let us work together'
