Lehlohonolo Moshaathama Phatudi

Johannesburg, South Africa

Summary

I have graduated with a BA degree, majoring in International Relations and Media Studies, from the University of the Witwatersrand. I also hold a BA Honours degree in Media Studies from the University of the Witwatersrand. I recently graduated with a BA Language Practitioners degree (Cum Laude) from the University of Johannesburg. I have a passion for languages and linguistics. I enjoy applying the skills and knowledge I have acquired at university and the internships I have taken part in to ensure that texts I receive on a freelance basis communicate their intended messages to readers in the most clear and understandable manner; whether this is using my translation, writing, editing, proof-reading and quality checking skills.
