I am a team player, team leader, time conscious and cope very well under pressure. I stated the above because I have been involved in lots of team work and leadership both at university and workplace. Time is one important thing I adhere to at all times.

I have respect for myself and the people around me. These include listening skills and being very patient with colleagues who at times might say things that I might not agree with. I am very passionate about legal research, Constitution and Administrative law in their entirety. My research skills are immeasurable as I got coached by two outstanding professors from Wits University. I am also strongly confident about my legal writing and I believe that’s the most important skill for anyone in legal practice. With that said, I believe I will be of great value to the organisation.
