Mbali Madwe is a MA student in Media Studies. She holds a BA in Media Studies and Political Sciences and a BA(Hons) in Media Studies from the University of the Witwatersrand. Three words that best describe her are ambitious, passionate and selfless. Mbali is currently researching the violation of journalistic ethical principles in reporting on women and children, based on stories reporting the ‘16 Days of Activism against Women and Child Abuse in South Africa’ campaign. Her other interests include news, current affairs, politics, sports, entertainment, business and philanthropy. Mbali aspires to be a media mogul or influential business woman. The spirit of ubuntu and the ‘art of giving’ is something that she treasures and holds in high esteem. Once she becomes that household name, her dream is to give back to the previously disadvantaged community and to be that voice for social change through the only sustainable method: education. Mbali is an advocate for education and believes that it is paramount that every child has the right to an education as it is the only sustainable means to eradicate poverty and alleviate inequalities, especially in Africa. By raising sufficient funds, Mbali hopes to one day make a difference in a few children’s lives by empowering them through knowledge, which can only be achieved by providing them with an access to education. She also wants to have an organisation where she helps young girls build their self esteem, cultivate their confidence and groom them to be self sufficient. According to Mbali, “only then would I have done my bit for charity”.
