After completing my school career at Bellville High, I pursued my greatest love – the theatre. For the last three years, theatre has been an integral part of my being.
Not only has it shaped the way I walk and talk, but also the way in which I think about the world and its people. Finally, it paved the way for my future career as a journalist.
I am a firm believer in doing what scares you the most and I think that is part and parcel of why I am where I am today – in the Journalism Honours class at the University of Stellenbosch. My inquisitive nature, my willingness to learn more about the world around me and my acceptance of the fact that I am not a nine-to-five type of person, has guided me to this exhilarating profession.
Over the past five months, I think I have found a niche in feature writing with specific focus on topics related to the arts and theatre. Other than that, I love telling the stories of people who have not been granted the opportunity to do so. More than that, I love the idea of providing a platform for these people – the marginalised and in many instances, the unsung heroes of this country – to speak for themselves.
I love stories, I love to tell them and I love to know them first. My wish for the future is that I will always be granted the opportunity to do just that.
