Bulelani is a Writer at Portal Publishing where he writes for the Careers Portal. My love for writing began in high school when I realised that had a knack for literature and set my sights on pursuing journalism as a career path.

I have completed a National Diploma in Journalism at Cape Peninsula University of Technology and I am currently studying towards an Advanced Diploma in Journalism at the same institution. My aim so far is to currently to further the initial parts of my writing career with Portal Publishing and contribute to its growth as an organisation.

I enrolled on to journalism not only to better my research skills but to also branch out into broadcast.
