Ling Sheperd is a KhoiKhoi writer based in South Africa. Her work focuses on the Khoi people culture, history and language. She uses her work to decolonise the history taught of yesteryear, and to elevate first nation communities and their descendants. In 2020, Ling started writing for the Daily Vox; a publication that amplifies the voices of youth. She is determined to use any platform she has to uplift and illuminate marginalised folks in South Africa. In the last three years, she has been studying KhoiKhoi history and how it is reflected in modern society.
