I am Dineo Kgopong, a third year journalism student at the Tshwane University of Technology. I specialise in Advance Editing and Design for Printing and Contemporary Political Sciences. In my second year of studying, I was exposed to Broadcasting both TV and Radio and student writer for Journalism Department blog, Journ Express. I was also a student journalist for a period of six months at Tshwane local Newspapers (Pheli Times, Moretele Times, Soshanguve Pulse and Mamelodi Times).
I have been passionate about writing since before I started studying Journalism. I study journalism to help the vulnerable, to be a voice for the voiceless and bring communities together. I am excited to join the African Writers’ Hub and write stories/news for all societies.
