Hi there hope you are all doing well. My name is Jaco Hitge i am a 20 year old from the beautiful city of roses Bloemfontein in South Africa! I just want to say how excited i am to be featured in the next issue of Twisted Male Magazine. It’s still an amazing honor for me, thank you to everyone who’s making it possible and every who’s making it possible for me to live out my dream and doing what i love.
Here’s a few things about me.
I have a lot of talents when it comes to proofing myself to another person, or proofing myself that it is possible to achieve your dreams. Every single talent and gift i have is not just something to me. I am truly blessed and thankful for all the gifts and talents i have received from God and everything He does for me in my life!

My life is a true blessing and everyone in my life is a true blessing that i’m super thankful for every single day i wake up. My family, my friends, and even people i don’t know personally.

On that topic i just want to take this opportunity to talk about something that nobody really wants to talk about. And that is depression and anxiety! God made us all so special and worthy, and it breaks my heart to know that there are people out there struggling with depression and anxiety that makes them feel worthless and that they don’t have a goal in life. Depression and anxiety are just the devil pulling strings and playing with your head trying to make you think that you are worthless, and that is simply not the case. Don’t let ANYONE Or anything make you think that!!!

You are worth it in every aspect of your life, you are loved if not by friends then by your family and by God.

Thank you so very much for giving me this opportunity for me to really express myself!
