Author Haji Mohamed Dawjee has graced us with her new book Here's The Thing. This comes after the release of her first book Sorry, Not Sorry: Experiences of a brown woman in a white South Africa in 2018.
Her book includes the loss of loved ones and becoming a parent for the first time.
I was just in a different place in my life at the time. I think Sorry, Not Sorry was necessary at the time. I stand by the things I wrote in Sorry, Not Sorry, but I also grew up in my thinking since writing that book.Haji Mohamed Dawjee - Author
In the book, Dawjee touches on parenting, being an investigative journalist and what it means to be human.
Dawjee also has a great passion for Serena Williams. She even thanked her in her acknowledgement section of the book.
I live in hope that one day she and I will be very good friends or that she will adopt me. You know, if she sees the acknowledgment then it'll be a foot in the door.Haji Mohamed Dawjee - Author
