Personal Statement

Since the beginning of my tertiary education in 2015 I have graduated from UCT twice. In 2017 I graduated with my BSocSci (PPE) degree with distinctions in all three of my majors, and a distinction overall. In 2018 I completed my Honours degree in Justice and Transformation and in April graduated with a first class Honours degree. I am a dedicated and hard-working individual. I have, in the last three years, been fortunate enough to find employment in fields relevant to my studies in the form of both an essay marker and tutor at the UCT School of Economics and in the UCT politics department, as well as an internship with Africa Unite, a South African human rights based NGO. I am currently working towards my masters in Human Rights Law at the University of Edinburgh, and will graduate in August 2020.
