I am the founder and CEO of Kwasukela Books, a South African publishing company that produces content in various official languages. I am also currently pursuing my Honours in African Studies at the University of Cape Town where my research focuses on the isiZulu historical novels of R.R.R. Dhlomo.

My work in publishing, alongside my studies and research in the social sciences, has provided me with a wide array of skills that range from Adobe design software, digital marketing, market analysis and sales, to quantitative and qualitative research, editing, proofreading, translation, transcription and more. I hope to take part in projects as a freelancer in which I can make use of these skills simultaneously in a creative and gratifying way.

In particular I am offering my skills as an English to isiZulu translator, a fiction ghost writer, proofreader, editor, social media strategist, social media manager and market analyst.
