This blog reflects on life at work at comments on the latest news that shapes my 9-5 working day in a Corporate Communications consultancy.

About Me

I am a born and bred South African who has always loved to read and write. As a child my mother used to read to me and my siblings, from classics like the “Lord of the Rings” but later also from her own stories. She would write children’s stories and then use us as her test audience, but I loved to hear what she had written long after my siblings had tired of it. So I grew up in an environment of reading and writing, which inspired my love of these things. I hope to write a great book some day, and have learnt first hand the determination and will that it takes. My love of English inspired me to continue my study of it at university. I majored in Law and English in a BA degree at UCT where I found that I took to English much more than law. I enjoyed learning about South Africa’s history and the development of our liberal Constitution, which increasingly made me committed to the hope this country has for the future. Ideally, I’d like to find myself in a job where I am able to write; that allows a good mix of time spent with people and being able to work on my own.

Welcome to WOWers 2008!

It was a great pleasure to welcome the new WOWers to the programme on Monday. As I mentioned briefly in the session, it was a nice opportunity to reflect on the process I've been through. I've built a lot of confidence in the last year and learnt a great deal, all of which began with my first day in WOW 2007.

Lesley and Jean, thank you for setting up such a wonderful programme that has helped me in so many ways.

I look forward to reading all the new blogs and also to sharing my thoughts on the blogging process with the new group today.

And a very big WELCOME to you all. I hope you are all looking forward to it!

Nice one little Sue, and hey thanks for being the torch-bearer for all of us. I hope that the 2008 intake will enjoy the programme as much like we did.
