I am a student at the University of Pretoria. In 2018 I graduated with a BPolSci (International Studies) degree. I am currently completing a BA Hons (International Relations) and am planning to start a Masters in Security Studies (Course Work) at the University of Pretoria next year. I have had good leadership experience while serving on the Executive Committee of the Tuks Student Political Association. In my three-year reign I served as Marketing Coordinator for one year and Treasurer for two years.
My academic interests include Security Studies, Counter-terrorism and Feminism. This past June I completed a Graduate Summer School in Security Governance and Conflict Resolution at the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. During this Summer School I had the opportunity to visit various international organizations, such as; NATO SHAPE Headquarters, The European Commission, The UN MICT and The Netherlands Department of Foreign Affairs. This Summer School further sparked my interest in Security Studies.
By the end of this year I will have contributed to my first published article, in collaboration with other students at the University of Pretoria (Department of Political Sciences). I am also hoping to find a publishing opportunity for my research presented at this UN Conference. My presentation at this conference is based on my Honours Research Project that I Have completed this year. In the coming years I am planning on completing my Masters in Security Studies, participating in various internships at international organizations and further publish research.
