YEN.com.gh is in possession of a video in which 16-year-old, Sandizile Malindiza, reveals how she helps the people of Eswatini, better known by the name Swaziland, to preserve their culture and traditional values.
Malindiza learnt how to make designs from her grandmother and now earns an income by creating beautiful traditional attires.
According to her, she enjoys making people happy and is proud to refer to the designs as her own when her clients are happy with her finished work.
YEN.com.gh understands that her work has proven to be important for the people of Eswatini because it plays a role in preserving their culture.
BBC News Africa reports that Malindiza started her designs at the age of 11 years after she studied how her grandmother went about her designs.
She reveals that the most challenging designs are those that come in the form of pictures submitted by prospective clients.
This poses a challenge, she says, because people pay her for her services and they want exactly what is displayed in their pictures.
Malindiza therefore has to do it again and again till she achieves the exact request of her client.
She however reveals that she has no desire to be a designer in future as she has interest in biotechnology and wants to be either a chemist or a pharmacist.
