Siyanda Kakana, a 25 year old mother with “daddy issues”, displays her strength by being vulnerable in her self-published book, Nudes: Addressing and undressing my truth. In her book, Siyanda reflects on her 10 year journey to forgiveness of the men who betrayed, abused and mistreated her. She wrote her book to inspire and encourage women to own their stories, acknowledge their pain and to forgive.
She’s an authentic writer who reflects on personal accounts of abuse, lack of self-worth and relationships. Forgiveness saved her from the pent up anger and bitterness that almost destroyed her. Her book, is currently available for purchase on Amazon.com for $3.99 where she offers a collection of poems, prayers and prose. As a woman of prayer, Siyanda hopes that her book will lead her readers closer to God, teach them to love their neighbour and to pray for their enemies.
