BSocSci - Politics & Governance, Sociology - 2022

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me - Philippians 4:13"

I am a final year undergraduate student, currently completing my BSocSci, majoring in Politics & Governance and Sociology which means that I am equipped to produce critical analysis of different social phenomena. I have communication skills and interpersonal skills – highlighted by the different leadership positions I have held.

Career Aspirations

I see myself working in the policy-making process in different statutory institutions, ideally working towards eradicating unequal access to basic resources and advocating for social justice for all. This includes positions that particularly look at public policy analysis, implementation and evaluation.

Work & Volunteer Experience

I am a youth leader and an active member of the youth ministry in my local church - Thembalethu SDA Church, helping with classes and activities and involved in different community service projects. I am involved with the Golden Future Project, which is a community outreach project as well as a tutoring society that provides academic support to high school students.

Other Interests

I enjoy leisure reading, staying fit and going for jogs, mindfulness exercises and doing volunteer work. I also have interests in the basic graphic design and the arts, music, and drawing.
