Hi, and welcome to my blog. This blog will allow you to view what I have been up to in my years doing journalism at Rhodes University! What an amazing experience it has been thus far. It also shows how I have progressed from first year as well as the skills I have developed through my years practicing as a student journalist.

The sound clips and diary entries have all been produced by me so have fun and feel free to comment on the work I have been doing.

P.S. As part of my Journalism 3 Democracy, Development and Critical Media Production course I become part of an amazing initiative to represent wards 7 and 8 here in Grahamstown, who needed their voices to be heard. This group effort has been documented on

This course definitely marked the peak of my experience here at Rhodes University.
