THE SOUTH AFRICAN: TRUE COLOURS
AN INSPIRATIONAL ROLE MODEL OF THE STORY.
Saesha was born in July 2009 on a bench overlooking the sea in Palma de Mallorca, Spain and shortly after that her story continued in the mountains of Saas Fee, Switzerland. “I created Saesha to represent the struggles that youngsters from all walks of life face while growing up and want those who read about her including adults to be inspired to move forward and believing in themselves no matter the odds.” T. Dench Patel designed Saesha with a futuristic vision hoping to inspire those who will read her story. “I hope that Saesha can help readers draw strength, consciousness and awareness through mutual connections and experiences.”
“Saesha is my child, the girl that I can imagine being in my wildest dreams!”
