In a few words, I am a fervent patriot, a scientist and an aspiring journalist. At the moment I am completing my MSc degree in Biochemistry in Germany, and next year I will enrol for a postgraduate Honours degree in Journalism at Wits. I have a passion for writing and an understanding of science - a good combination for sharing valuable info with all kinds of people and across all sectors of the economy. I am a firm believer that a broader knowledge of science will boost our economy whether it is applied in subsistence farming for the poor or providing electricity for a city. I would also like to see top SA scientists get more recognition for their work in the public eye, which may inspire more people to get into science - the more South Africa can create its own innovations in science and technology, the cheaper the cost of implementation will be and the more local jobs will be created. Perhaps I am thinking too big but science communication could be a powerful catalyst.
