On completion of my Bachelor’s degree, I ventured straight into the BCom Honours programme at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Immediately after finishing my Honours, I began working for Dynatech Information Systems as a BPM developer in Durban. I needed to move to Pietermaritzburg for personal reasons, so started work as a tutor at UKZN, Pietermaritzburg . Whilst working as a tutor, I managed to complete my Master’s Degree. After a few years of hard work and dedication, I was promoted to a lecturer. I am currently doing my PhD in Information Systems & Technology.
