I am an IsiXhosa lecturer at Nelson Mandela University and a Xhosa language translator. I am the author of two books, "IsiXhosa for Beginners" and "IsiXhosa For Beginners 2". I was also a board member of the Unako community-based movement. I got accepted for the GNOME outreach programme internship as a software translator. I translate English to Xhosa. In 2011, I worked as an IsiXhosa language practitioner at Translate.org. I have been involved in substantial translation projects like the ABSA translation project as a Xhosa specialist. I also had the privilege to be involved in a reading week project for Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Library as a judge for the Xhosa novel year 2014 and 2015 as a facilitator.
I hold a doctoral degree (DLitt, isiXhosa), master's degree in IsiXhosa (2011), a BA honours degree in IsiXhosa (2009), and BA degree in media, culture and communications (2008) from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University. During my university studies, I served as a Sergeant at Arms and public relations officer for the Toastmasters Society.
