My name is Leigh-Anne and for as long as I can remember, I have loved to hear stories.
I was born and raised in the Lowveld. I still live here and I have watched the small town of Nelspruit develop into the City of Mbombela. But while big companies move in and make their mark, and while city slickers in their business suits fill up the newly built office spaces, my interest has always been for the underdog. Local Lowveld companies are still very much a part of the community although these days they have to fight a little harder to keep their place.
The Lowveld, and Nelspruit (Mbombela) in particular, has some of the most interesting people. I find them in all kinds of places, and they always seem to cross my path. Maybe that is because I believe everyone has an interesting quality. Whether it’s a hobby, a trade or a side passion, everyone has a story to tell.
And I’m telling them, right here on this blog. So join me in my storytelling and read all about the people and places that make the Lowveld the special place it is.
Lately, I’ve been pulling other writers into this project. Be sure to keep an eye out for the new names.
