Puno Selesho
Spoken Word Artist

I am a 22 year old BA Law graduate from the University of Pretoria currently completing my LLB. As a spoken word artist, I have performed on various platforms in South Africa, including TEDx Pretoria. I have a heart for uplifting the youth, advocating for women’s rights and impacting communities in a positive way. Social development is my main aim and I have started various social entrepreneurial ventures including The Cherry Blossom Project (NPO) which is aimed at preparing underprivileged high school girls for the ‘real world’ and helping them realize their self-worth. I have also established The Park Exchange which is a platform for professionals, students and creatives to engage on crucial socio-political issues in a series of community talks and dinners. My words are my gift to the world and I hope to share my own African narrative in a way that will inspire, uplift and ignite a spark in people.
