My name is Claire Dongo. I’m a Zimbabwean currently living in South Africa, working on my PhD in Digital Art as well as lecturing part-time. I’m a multi-talented digital artist with over 15 years’ of working experience in the digital media/arts industry and 12 years’ of teaching. I’m extremely passionate about animation and digital art as a whole, self-motivated, talented and always eager to continue learning. I have a passion for helping others, which is a trait that comes from my parents and has been showcased in having been part of the Rotary International family for over 15 years and counting …
I have attempted to visualise how much this pandemic has united the population of South Africa based on the stories that I have read on #ImStaying Facebook page during this period. Many of the stories were of people testifying that the lockdown gave them a chance to stop and reconnect with their families and friends as they were constantly checking on the health of one another. The level of positive engagement that these posts were receiving was amazing! COVID-19 may be dominating our problems, but the spirit of human beings will ultimately win.
