BA Degree, 2019

 

Background

I completed my matric in 2018 and commenced with my degree at St Augustine in 2019. I made a decision to major in Law, Psychology and Philosophy with Politics as an elective module. My motivation is driven by my fear of being average and living a mediocre life. That coupled with my desire to help the oppressed majority through cutting down the long chain of poverty caused by previous laws.

 

Career ambitions? Goals:

My career goals and efforts are spearheaded towards practising in the legal field as a silk advocate, specialising in civil rights.
