I am Jo-ann Rooi, born 23 November 1980 in Windhoek and raised in Swakopmund. It’s not until recently with the passing of one of Namibia’s national hero’s that one realizes just how privilege we really are. Namibia is full of culture and beauty and a history that upholds its name. With the likes of Herman Andimba Toivo ya Toivo , a Namibian anti-apartheid activist, politician and political activist. Who fought for our independence that all of us are enjoying until this day. Except for our country’s beauty, vast landscapes and cultures, we have a beautiful and proud history that will be passed on to our children. A history I can talk about and share with my son, for me that is the best inspiration and reason to be a proud Namibian.
