HO Ulfrieda

She’s a first generation South African, born to Chinese parents who arrived from China in the 1950s and 1960s. She contributes to South African newspapers and magazines on a range of topics and has followed the story of the Chinese in South Africa as one of her keen areas of interest.

In 2011 she published her book “Paper Sons and Daughters”. It’s a childhood memoir about growing Chinese under the apartheid regime in South Africa and straddling two identities informed by growing up in Africa and her parents’ imagined homeland in China.
