Lerato Botha

Lerato BothaMy name is Lerato Botha. I am a Second-year student studying a BA with majors in English Language and Literature and Gender Studies. My passion for writing has been one that I have developed since my years in Primary School. Despite being a child of big dreams who wanted to try everything from being a lawyer, to a designer, to a therapist, I always came back to writing as my desired career. News, Features and Opinions are three of my favourite topics to write for. I enjoy writing for News as it affords me the opportunity to share relevant and unbiased information with readers, whilst Features and opinions allow me to tap into my greater interests as a writer, such as giving reviews on different creative pursuits, or getting the chance to express my opinion on certain topics through language. I am also the current Editor-in-Chief for VARSITYNewspaper.
