Let me tell you more about myself...

It has been a journey of success and lessons from failures. Below is some of the work that I have been involved in.

Timeline

2008 - 2009

Cartoonist at Media 24 (City Vision)

My first official job - working as a freelance cartoonist. I drew cartoons for a local newspaper called City Vision and worked closely with journalists and editors from the Daily Sun. One of the best times in my life and a privilege to have been exposed to the world of media at an early age.  

2010 - 2014

Member of the Wits Disability Awareness Movement

Through my time as a member of the Disability Awareness Movement, I have served as Treasurer and Chairperson of the organisation. This was one of the most fulfilling times at university, as I gained a lot of experience and met a lot of people who have had a positive impact in my life and in the way I view the world around me.  

2011 - 2011

Member of the University Forum of the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg)

My participation in this committee widened my perspective on principles of academic freedom, transformation and the general overview of university management. I set in this committee as an activist of disability rights through the Wits Disability Awareness Movement.

2011 - 2011

Member of the Student Services Advisory Committee of the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg)

As a student leader and disability rights activist, I sat in this committee to ensure that the needs of students living with disabilities were met by university management.  

2011 - 2012

Member of The Consulting Academy (Johannesburg)

The Consulting Academy is the first student-run consultancy in Africa. It is based on a European model where students are part of the management of an actual company. I learnt a lot of soft and hard skills, and also made friends internationally. I was one of the first-generation students who were part of this amazing initiative.

2011 - 2012

Member of the Organisation of African Youth

As Secretary for Agriculture and Entrepreneurship of the South African region, I had insightful exposure to the work of NGOs. I was hands-on and assisted in organising events as well as speaking on behalf of the organisation in media platforms.  

2013 - 2013

Selected for the Google Bold Immersion Programme (EMEA)

In 2013, I was the only African student to be selected for this programme. Students from Europe, the Middle-East and Africa were selected for a development programme at Google’s head offices in Ireland. I learnt some of the most valuable skills, some of which are still in use today.

2014 - 2014

Member of the Security Services Advisory Committee of the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg)

This was an amazing experience. As a disability rights activist at university, I was given the opportunity to sit in this committee and to raise the security concerns of students living with disabilities.

2014 - 2014

Graduate of the University of the Witwatersrand (Johannesburg)

My experience at the University of the Witwatersrand was amazing. I acquired a lot of valuable skills and established a solid and reliable network. I qualified in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering (Civil).

It is the simple idea of demonstrating to South Africa that more can be achieved through constructive engagement and collaboration (www.tcmovement.org).
