SHAWCO education: tutoring students from disadvantaged neighborhoods around Cape town, Robogals : teaching young girls how to “program” Lego Mindstorms with the intent of encouraging them to join STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) fields, archery, table tennis, Investsoc and ABSIP, and EFF and SASCO: to learn about the political nature of events that happen around us and on campus.
Dream For Your Country:
I dream of a South Africa that is truly non-racial, non-sexist and equal for all. A South Africa with quality education that is accessible to everybody! A South Africa that does not rely on corporate monopolies like it does now. A South Africa that creates more opportunities to the previously disadvantaged so they can fend for themselves.
“… without commitment you will never start, but more importantly, without consistency you will never finish. Ease is a greater threat to profess than hardship, so keep moving, keep growing, keep learning, and see you at work!" - Denzel Washington, accepting his NAACP Image award 2017
