Ronnie Strydom (21) het sy debuut-digbundel, so u, doop ‘n os bekendgestel.

Hy is ’n nagraadse student aan die Nelson Mandela Metropolitaanse Universiteit waar hy verlede jaar sy BCom-graad verwerf het.

Strydom was in 2013 die top presteerder en hoofseun by Brandwag Hoërskool en in 2014 een van die ontvangers van die gesogte NMMU visekanseliersbeurse.

In sy matriekjaar het Strydom op Litnet gedebuteer met enkele van sy gedigte. In sy eerste jaar op universieit is van van sy gedigte opgeneem in die ATKV/JIP-digundel: Ek en Als Tussenin.

Strydom, ’n top NMMU akademiese pre-steerder in rekeningkunde, is lid van die PinnAcle Leierskap program, wat studente begelei as toekomstige sakeleiers.

Bekende sanger en digter dr. Koos van der Merwe was genader om sy mening te gee oor Strydom se werk.

“Strydom neem ‘n mens op reis. Na donker plekke en hoopvolle plekke. Vir almal wat ‘sonstrale soos balke rondsleep’ en wens om ‘die maan se benediksie soos ‘n mantel’ te kan dra, is hierdie gedigte bakens op die roete,” het dr. Van der Merwe gesê.

Volgens een van Strydom se mentors, prof. Marius Crous, óók ‘n digter, “is daar ‘n paar mediese dokters wat as digters onthou sal word, maar daar is beslis nie veel rekenmeester-digters nie.”

Hy beskou Strydom se volgehoue voorliefde vir die digkuns die genotlikste van sy interaksie met hom.

Strydom se digbundel is uitgegee deur Jessica Knoetze-Raper. Om een van Ronnie Strydom se digbundels aan te skaf e-pos ronnie.strydom@gmail.com
