The ThinkQuest Narrative Team
|Lulu was the scribe who put together and uploaded, and then updated the KNWWL Chart||Jennifer was our group editor because she is good at spelling.She was also the scribe who gathered our comments comparing doctors and healers, and uploaded the comparison sheet to our project site.||Kayley took all the photograhs at the Botanical gardens. She made a Power Point presentation with the photographs because you can see them much better that way.|

Hello my name is Sani and I am proudly South African. I am Zulu and Venda as my mother is a Zulu and my father is a Venda. A lot of Zulus are indigenous healers but none of my direct family members are healers.I speak mostly Zulu in my home although I am fluent in English and I am learning in English at IPS. I am familiar with indigenous healing as it is easy to find in rural areas, and that is where my grandmother lives. I have family who do however live in rural areas and have seen sangomas in action! I have never gone to a traditional healer for treatment because we live in the city.
All about Lulu
Hello readers, my name is Lulu and I live in South Africa. I'm a pupil at IPS. I'm in grade 7 and I'm turning 13 in June.Being part of the team has encouraged me to learn more about both medical and traditional healing.My home language is Zulu and when I try to say something in English, my parents pretend they can't hear me(I guess they do this on purpose because I'm not so fluent in Zulu).The other interesting languages that fascinate me are Ndebele,siSwati and Afrikaans. We have 13 subjects at school but my favorite subjects are Computers,Maths,Arts/Culture and Afrikaans.Music is my passion and I don't go a day without singing at least one song.I love singing gospel. I'm a member of the Seventh-Day-Adventist church and we worship on Saturdays. One of my favourite hobbies is dancing,especially Hip-Hop and Kwaito.I love School,it's my second home!
My name is Karina and I am 12 years old. I am the team leader. I love it here in South Africa because of our cultural diversity. It is so interesting to learn about others points of view and ways of doing things, and I think that this plays an important role in our society, considering our history of Apartheid.
I feel it is important for us to learn to respect our differences here in South Africa, and we have just had our elections and proved we can do just that.
I am a bookworm who loves afternoons with a good book or my laptop, and I love spending time with friends and family. My favorite subjects at school are Math, English, History and art. One day I would like to be a famous Marine Biologist and have my own TV show.
I am bilingual, as I speak both English and Afrikaans. I would like to learn as many languages as possible, because I want to travel the world and experience different countries' cultures, customs and ways of life.
I'm am happy to be part of this amazing project because as I am sharing my knowledge and love for this topic, I am learning many new things and skills.
Hello! my name is Kayley, I am 13 years old and in Primary School .
I love to be in the computer center. I love animals, reading, ice-skating and going to the movies with my BFF. I live in South Africa. I am a Christian and I can speak one language fluently (English). I am in the process of learning Afrikaans and I would like to learn French and one day travel the world! I love comedies, romance and animation! I am terrified of spiders and crocodiles! I like to surf the internet and watch cartoons. I am a prefect and I am not good at sports! I like to sing and draw. I am very happy to be part of this project, I think it would be good for me to learn about traditional healers. When I first joined this project I didn't know much about traditional healers because I always visit the doctor. I have never asked about what traditional healers do and I didn't know that there are still traditional healers around today. So I am happy to say that this project has tought me so much!
