I am currently a final year student who lives in Cape Town who aspires to become a journalist. Writing has been a detailed hobby of mine since high-school and I hope to use the skills I have learned to good effect in the working world. Currently, the uncertainty of the following year has become a defining moment in my current life. I have applied to do an honours course in journalism at two prestigious universities. However, I am also weighing up the option of entering the working world with my degree. Within journalism, I find enjoyment in feature writing and opinion pieces that can be viewed on my newly launched blog platform. Of this style of journalism, writing on sports and political issues have been most entertaining. In my spare time, I partake in other activities that include hiking, reading, and playing football.
