For Youth Day we asked first-year journalism students from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology to write for us.
Here's what * Jane had to say:
Cape Town - Today will be the first time actually writing about the encounters I recently had regarding privacy and sexual abuse.
Since I can remember I've been objectified for the way I look. As a young girl, and I mean 12 years old type of young, boys of 17,18,19 sometimes even 20 would mistake my age for 16 or 17 due to how evolved my body structure was.
That was only guys trying to hit on me.
