Social work isn't for the faint-hearted in these parts. Not only does one encounter all manner of social challenges, but the tools available to solve them are relatively few.
Amanda joined us in January 2017 as an unpaid volunteer, then as a stipended social work intern by the department, but that was only for a year. She's currently on extended maternity leave. She is a Walter Sisulu University graduate and her particular interest is the social causes of mental illness. Her favourite quote is "Be who you needed when you were younger and who you might need when you're older." Her love for singing is infectious; her presence energises the department.
