Ayanda Mvimbi wrote an autobiography. She share more about her life and the writing process.

I was born in Johannesburg, but grew up in the Eastern Cape in the small village of Mbonisweni, which is in Nqanqarhu (Maclear). In 2005, I was involved in a car accident 2005 while I was very young. Now, I am a paraplegic.

The accident change my life in a way I never thought or imagined. The doctor told me that I will never be able to walk again. How sad it is for someone to deliver such painful news. I couldn’t understand. I said that they had made a mistake. Not me, I cannot be paralysed.

I questioned God, “Why me?”. I was so angry at him. It was never easy for me to accept my condition. It took me years.

During my search for healing, I met a man of God who is an author. I bought some of his books while others were gifted by people who found them inspiring. Through this experience, I fell in love with writing and reading.

At the time, I wasn’t a professional writer, only journaling. But that dream died and disappeared.

In 2022, my paster said I need to write a book about my life. I was shocked and confused as it was a dream I didn’t have any more. We prayed together and I started writing.

To me, it was exciting thinking about or imagining I have my own book. It was emotional going back to things I went through; even some things I’ve never spoke about or told anyone.

All I can say is that life is unpredictable and its cruelty is beyond imagination. It can change in a second in a way you’ll never imagine. No one can be the master of life. Enjoy the little things you have and things you can do.

There is life after a disability. You can enjoy it to the fullest and achieve things you’ll  never thought that you capable to achieve. Everyone who found her/himself with a disability enjoy life and take good care of yourself. Love life and eat healthy.
