A’Eysha Kassiem

A’Eysha Kassiem, born and raised in Mitchell's Plain, lead a "sheltered" life with her head full of stories which her sisters would act out. She talks us through the 15 year process of writing her novel, Suitcase of Memory. It's a story share of perseverance with life happening along the way. And chronicling life, memory and those smaller moments is close to A'Eysha's heart. It's what inspired Suitcase of Memory and is what A'Eysha believes we should be paying attention to. While big news stories will always grab headlines, it's the little things that can truly define us as an individual and thus a nation. Give yourself permission to wander back in time with your own memories through this story share - A'Eysha and 1001 share some sumptuous synergy!
