The illustrator: Lorenzo Plaatjies

His illustrations paint an honest picture of his heartfelt feelings.

The Designer: Daisie-Jo Grobler

The Game Developer: Bahiyya Kahn

Game developer, Bahiyya Khan is a strong advocate for marginalised groups. The games she has created aim to raise awareness around issues facing women of colour, and other hot topics you wouldn't normally hear about in the gaming world. The 23-year-old says the only way to change some of society’s biggest problems is through education and that’s why she’s making gaming an educational tool and an emotional outlet.
