Rose is originally from the UK and moved to Cape Town in 2012 where she completed a BA in Politics and History at UCT. Rose is currently studying for an Honours degree in Justice and Transformation at UCT specialising in Transitional Justice, a programme that has fostered an interest in structural inequality and injustice. She is passionate about gender-based issues, particularly around maternal and child health, and hopes to continue her studies in Public Health in the near future.
Rose is interning with the Community Education and Mobilisation unit for three months as part of her postgraduate degree. She hopes to use her time at Sonke to learn more about the intersections of gender, health and justice as well as Sonke’s approaches towards these issues. She looks forward to gaining some valuable experience working as part of a non-governmental organisation.
