DJ Roxy puts her teenage life in a book

Journalist and DJ, Rosalia David is better known as DJ Roxy has just released the long-awaited novel titled Belinda after promoting the later to be serialized book for almost a year.

The book is about the life of a teenager named Belinda who had to go through a few challenges growing up, from losing both her parents to waking up in a hospital bed fighting for her life,
“This book is very special to me because it reminds me of the scars and challenges I had to go through as a teenager. It took me close to five years to complete this book because I would write and contemplate whether to continue or not. I was struggling to make up my mind because these are live events that remain fresh in my head” she explained.

Perhaps what also delayed the book was the fact that she was struggling to balance between having a full-time journalism job and being one of the few female DJ’s in the country.
“I didn’t have much time when I was working at The Villager, we would work until late every week and work during the weekends as well, so, every time I got home I was too tired to focus on writing the book,” she said.

She added that the only time she got to write a few chapters was when she was stressed about work.

“Every time I felt like quitting my job, I tell myself that I am going to write this book, release it and resign that was always my plan, but it just never worked out. I only managed to finish writing after I was fired from The Windhoek Observer. That is when I told myself that things just got real,” she said.
David who managed to get sponsorship from SME competes further told unwrap.online that the books are now available going for N$200 per copy.
The official book launch is scheduled to take place on the 26 July 2019.
