Robyn was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, still isn't dead and despises writing in the third person.
She received her undergraduate degree at Rhodes University, having completed a Bachelor of Arts in Politics, History and Journalism at the end of 2013 and completed her Honours in Journalism (career entry) at Wits University in Johannesburg during 2014.
From April 2015 until March 2016 she worked as the Communications Intern for the MRC/Wits Agincourt Research unit in rural Mpumalanga.
This blog is a collection of the work produced:
- for the Wits University student newspaper and website Wits Vuvuzela during 2014
- during her internship at MRC/WIts Agincourt Research Unit (2015/2016)
and independent blogging (2014-present).
Robyn is interested in everything besides sports and mean people. In the past she has specialised in photojournalism and television journalism, and considers visual media to be one of her strongest skills.
She decided to become a journalist because learning about other people’s lives was more fun than putting on pants and having her own.
