I’m currently a 2nd year Paralegal Student at the University of Johannesburg , the course will be completed at the end of November 2020 and I aspire to continue to study until I get a Doctorate.

In 1997 I formally joined the ANCYL after I had started participating at the age of 12 serving in the ANC’s street Commitees. In 2003 while at the Rand Afrikaans University (now UJ) I served as SASCO Branch Secretary from 2003-04 and then further became the ANCYL RAU Campus Secretary in 2004.

I had to quit RAU due to pressure and went back to Polokwane where I started being involved in several Committes/Boards such as The Limpopo Geographical Names Committee which I became its member from 2006-2010 when I got appointed to be its Provincial Chairperson by the then MEC for Arts and Culture Cde Joyce Mashamba I served as the Chairperson of the Committee until 2013.
