I am researcher and I co-run the legal advice office. I started working at SECTION27 on 11 of January 2016.
I consult members of the public, take statements and do research on any legal issues they have. If their issue falls outside of the mandate of SECTION27 I refer them to one of our partner organisations and ensure that they receive help. I also do research and advocacy work on a few health matters such as TB and School Health.
I have only worked here for a little over a year but I have been exposed to so many opportunities and so many more are coming my way. I have gained so much experience in many different things and this is one of the reasons that I’m going to turn out to be a well-rounded human rights lawyer one day. This organisation is the only one of its kind and holds a special place in people’s hearts. It really does feel like being around family every day when you’re in the office.
