THEME: Building Self-esteem
Character Name: Prudence
Area/Province: Cape Town, Western Cape. Fourways, Gauteng
Prudence has tried to commit suicide because of depression. She moved to Johannesburg from Cape Town where she feels more at home, but doesn’t quite fit within her family. Prudence has also been laughed at and ridiculed in her past because of her ‘funny’ hair, which doesn’t make her feel any better about herself in the present – let alone confident about the future. Watch as she tries to build her rock-bottom self-esteem with the help of a journal.
