I am currently doing a Master of Philosophy degree specialising in theories of justice and inequality at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and I hold a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) degree from UCT. Growing up I had always believed that I was meant to be a voice for the voiceless and speak out against the injustices our people endure daily. This was one of the reasons I opted to study law. However, studying law was a challenging path for me. Many unpleasant, insightful, and vital realisations occurred to me, not just for myself, but also for my passion for activism. I have learned about to the various laws that govern South Africa, as well as how they influence the lives of ordinary people, many of whom do not even have access to this legal system that purports to represent them. This quickly taught me that the law is not synonymous with justice and that our judicial system was not established with individuals like me in mind. Consequently, in both my academic and personal pursuits, I have given much of my work, time and heart to the pursuit of justice, equity, and transformation in South Africa. I believe that this programme will help aid in this pursuit.
