Johannesburg - A teenager can claim proudly that she is a published poet. Her book of poems is endorsed by former president, Thabo Mbeki who in his foreword, described the book as one that tells an inspiring story.

Matseliso Tlelai says her love of poetry began after her uncle passed away. Her anthology of poems will be launched in May.

Tlelai says she will donate all the proceeds from the sale of her book to the Thuthuka Bursary Fund for aspiring chartered accountants.
