While a college junior, I saw a poster for an essay competition from the Elie Wiesel Foundation. I barely thought I had anything to say worthy of Professor Wiesel's reading, never mind a winning essay. But something compelled me to write. I was shocked when I won, and remain deeply humbled by meeting and getting to know both Professor and Mrs. Wiesel. For me, this essay and its journey mark one of the most pivotal moments in my life.
The Ethics of South African Identity, was published in an anthology edited by Professor Wiesel, celebrating 20 years of the Elie Wiesel Prize in Ethics Essay.
