I hold a BA Degree in Politics and International Relations, Honors in Public Policy, Management and Governance, and Master’s in Policy Monitoring and Evaluation at the University of Johannesburg (UJ), Postgraduate Diploma in Labour Law (UJ) and Certficate in Public Policy Analysis and Africa’s Development.

I have previously worked as a Health Facilitator for two years in an NGO named Society for Family Health (SFH). I also worked as an Academic tutor and peer mentor at the University of Johannesburg for 2 years. I have a previous working experience as a M&E Researcher at the company named Underhill Corporate Solutions (UCS).

I am currently a leader of the youth community and a member of Career Avenue and Education (CEA) an NGO consisting of young educators and student teachers aiming to create awareness and continuous support to inspire geographically isolated learners by creating in-depth career exhibitions. I have many goals and plans which revolve around improvement of youth well-being, involvement of young people in SA society, and finding and promoting young leaders. That’s why I strived to take part in an educational organisation like JET Education Services as a JETStreamer.

I plan to join in researching and developing of projects together with the world’s best academics, public policy analysts, evaluators, officials, educational activists and leaders in human rights protection in order to solve the global problems of mankind as well as the challenges of my community. I am eager to gain new experiences, improve my skills and broaden my understanding of the dynamic economic world.
