Title of Dissertation: Social Media and Agenda Setting: The South African Trade Unions’ Perspective

My study will look at how South African trade unions are using social media for agenda setting. I started at CPUT in 2017 and hope to graduate in 2021. Being at CPUT reignited my fire for academics and the world of media. I enjoyed being around people from different backgrounds and hearing their views on the world. It was a huge achievement for me when I completed my proposal and got approval from the ethics committee. I didn’t think that I could reach that point.

Read, read, and read some more.

I grew up in Mitchell’s Plain, Cape Town, Western Cape, and now live in Muizenberg.

My advice for those wishing to succeed at postgrad studies: You are capable. Read, read, and read some more. Take in all the knowledge that you can. And always, always be teachable and greedy to learn.
