Short Story featured: “Growth Warrants Change” by Scholastica Memusi
Scholastica Memusi is a Telecoms Engineer in waiting who likes using words to express herself. Be it written or spoken.
An ardent fan of fiction, she also enjoys writing stories based on real experiences as she finds this a good way to vent.
“African stories are often intended to offer practical lessons, that’s how we were brought up. I believe there is always a lesson to be learnt at the end of it all.”
From Nairobi, Kenya, Scholastica is learning and growing as a writer.
She started this journey in 2015, at the prompting of someone somewhere, who insisted that there are people willing to read more, on the madness she is willing to spew.
Short stories are more of her thing, as this means the reader has no chance of getting bored too quickly.
Scholastica currently runs the blog http://www.mimimemc.wordpress.com
