Former Miss South Africa Basetsana Kumalo will release her memoir. Set to come out in October, the book is titled: My Journey of Hope and will be published by Penguin South Africa.
“It’s about spectacular failures and great wins,” she said in an Instagram story. The business woman revealed that she didn’t want to rush her memoir.
In a post on her Instagram, Basetsana revealed that writing My Journey of Hope was among the most intense, yet cathartic, liberating, and healing journeys of her life.
“It is not one of the important projects of my life; it is The MOST important project of my life. I laughed, I cried, I reflected, I counted my blessings, I am standing in the light of my own truth,” she said.
The book is set to be an inspirational rags to riches story from her upbringing in Soweto to winning Miss South Africa, to creating her business empire from scratch.
