About Me

My name is Stacey Liezl Siebritz. I was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to the UK when I was 11. After graduating with a BA in English from the University of Leeds in 2007, I decided to move to South Korea to teach English for a year (and ended up staying for three).

While living in South Korea, I worked as a regional editor of Chungcheong Province for 10 Magazine, a Seoul-based with a national readership, where I wrote reviews and features relating to local events and places of interest within the province. You can see examples of my work here, here and here.

I have recently graduated from The London School Of Journalism, and have written for Footprints, Mind Body Green and Om Magazine, a yoga and lifestyle publication.

You can find me on Facebook and Twitter.

Some inspiring words from Dr. Maya Angelou

Last weekend, I managed to catch the BET Honours Awards, and Dr. Maya Angelou was one of the honourees. Her acceptance speech was one of the loveliest and most inspiring speeches I have ever heard. What an extraordinary woman.

The embedding from the bet.com site is failing me at the moment, but here is the link to check it out.

And because I know that the internet is the land of short attention spans (including my own), and not everyone has time for a video, here is a transcript of the final words of the speech, which are my favourite.

“I know, that since life is our most precious gift, and as far as we can be absolutely certain, it’s given to us to live but once, let us so live we will not regret years of useless virtue, and inertia, and timidity, and ignorance, and in our last moments we can say: ‘All my life, all my conscious energies, have been dedicated to the most noble cause in the world, the liberation of the human mind and spirit – beginning with my own’.”

- Dr. Maya Angelou
