In Conversation with: Magdellin Chinata
My name is Magdellin Chinata, I am 20 and I live in SA. I was born in South Africa and when I was 2 I went to stay in Zim until I was 11 then I came back to SA. Both my parents are Zimbabwean. I am proudly Zimbabwean and not ashamed of it. I love food and I would say I am me and I don’t try to be anything that I’m not.
What made you want to get involved with this?
