Jessica Smith

Jessica Smith is a 21-year-old, born in Kwazulu-Natal to a family with a vague history in Europe and in South Africa’s indigenous people. In high school she took history as an extra subject, seeing the teacher once a week and doing self-study. She believes that examining the past can lead to a better understanding of the present. Her interests include hiking, horse riding and the occasional venomous snake handling course. She currently studies music in Cape Town and hopes to discover more about the indigenous ancestors in her family tree.
