On 12/12/12, I had the privilege of meeting Thandile and interviewing her in her home. She is a high school student who lives in the township of Masiphumelele, which is located in Cape Town, South Africa. Thandile speaks briefly on the hardships of living in the township and shares her hopes and needs for a brighter future. I was taken back by her enthusiasm and optimism, despite her situation. All the footage was captured on 12/12/12. I used a Canon 5D and Canon 7D for video and a Zoom H4N for recording audio.
