Aside from my work experience, I have participated in a wide range of social and academic activities:
- In 2014 I became a Fellow under the highly competitive HSRC/ UCLA Leadership in HIV and Gender-Based Violence prevention programme, during which I designed and led a programme on HIV and GBV prevention among youth in a township school.
- In 2015 I was selected by the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation as one of ten Young African Scholars and from this work I conducted research among young men in Ntuzuma Township, focusing largely on how they experience growing class inequality within their township. I have also presented my work at a number of national and international conferences.
- I am the former Chairperson of the Global Shapers Community- Durban Hub. The Global Shapers Community enables youth to be a voice for the future in local, regional and global thought processes and a catalyst of entrepreneurship in the global public interest. I have participated in a number of World Economic Forum events as a member of the Global Shapers Community.
- In 2018, I selected as one of the Mail & Guardian 200 Most Influential Young South Africans in the field of Education. During the same year, I was awarded the World Bank/Sexual Violence Research Initiative’s Development Marketplace for Innovation on gender-based violence prevention and response. The award for a project titled: Evaluating a walking school bus as a school-related gender-based violence intervention in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. This study aims to understand community perceptions of learner safety, experiences of School-Related Gender-Based Violence (SRGBV), and risks associated with walking particular routes to and from school; and, to implement and evaluate a walking school bus intervention by comparing learners on key outcomes including experiences of SRGBV, academic achievement, absenteeism, and attrition across three study groups (walking bus intervention, departmental learner transport intervention and no intervention).
