Born Free Generation

Akhia Andersson was born one year into the new democratic South Africa to parents of different races. Akhia lives in with her family in the Johannesburg suburb of Bryanston. In a few months she will be going to the United States to study performing arts. “In history in high school we studied South Africa during Apartheid, and if you look at the standards of living compared to now I think have a lot of freedom. I’m free to go any school I can afford to, I’m free to walk down the streets, I’m free to date somebody of a different race.” Alexia Webster/The Stand
