"I am my ancestors wildest dreams"

I obtained my LLB from Stellenbosch University, graduating in 2013. At Stellenbosch, I was an academic mentor at my on-campus residence and he tutored various modules throughout my undergraduate degree. I also formed part of a group of students who started the First Generation Camp, which is a camp that focuses on ensuring that the students who are the first of their families coming to University were equipped with skills to help them succeed at University. After University, I served articles and later become an associate at Bowman Gilfillan Inc. In July 2016, I served as a law clerk for Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga at the Constitutional Court of South Africa. I have been accepted to do my Masters in Law at the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA) in the United States of America. I was awarded the Sonke Human Rights and Health Fellowship, which will  cover my living expenses while I am pursuing my Masters. I will be doing my Masters in Law in Public Interest Law and Policy with a special focus in Public Health and my second major will be Critical Race Studies. 

My areas of interest include identity politics, intersectionality and socio-economic rights, reproductive health and gender equality. I enjoys reading books, poetry and attending other types of art performances such as plays, musical and recitals.I am one part of a duo that presents and produces a podcast €˜The Cheeky Natives,' which reviews books and other art performances.

Upon obtaining my Masters in Law, I will return to South Africa and work at Sonke Gender Justice working to promote gender equality in South Africa and around Africa. 

I am raising funds to cover my travelling costs to the United States as well as to cover any shortfalls that may raise as a result of volatility in the exchange rate.
