Yani’s Corner is a newsletter on Substack written by Tiyani Chauke. It touches on her day to day activities and life through her eyes.
Typing that out in third person felt so strange. Hello there, my name is Tiyani Chauke. A young woman born in a small village known as Elim, in the Limpopo Province and later bred in two well known metro’s in South Africa; Johannesburg and Pretoria. I am witty, fun-loving and quite the introvert. I am currently a stay-at-home mom that enjoys reading books, HIIT training and going hiking.
I grew up writing short stories and distributing them throughout the classroom every second day however one day all that stopped and I forgot about writing for quite some time until I had an interview with the founder of this platform, Herby Olschewski. A 30 minute conversation reminded me of my love for literature and I was introduced to a platform made for people like me.
I have a wide range of interests namely sports, fitness, visual arts, music and reading just to mention a few. The newsletter will bring forth interesting pieces on each of these topics including my journey as a new mom during a pandemic.
