Testimonials

Within a space of a week upon my arrival at The Digs, I had made friends who also threw me a surprise party on my 21st birthday. This year, I enjoyed Heritage Day with my fellow corridor mates here at The Digs, preparing South African cuisines together, singing along to Brenda Fassie and other South African jams, celebrating our differences and our journeys.
