Rhodes Community Engagement and Environmental Awards
Two thousand and eighteen was an eventful year for me because not only have I made huge strides in my professional career, but I have also managed to make a sizable impact on the larger Grahamstown community through my ever expanding snake awareness program. In recognition of my contribution to the city, I was nominated for two prestigious awards by Rhodes University; namely the Rhodes Community Engagement Award and the Rhodes Environmental Award.
Although I won neither, I am proud to announce that I came runners-up in the Individual Environmental Award Category (Rhodes Environmental Award) and third place in the Student Researcher of the Year category for the Community Engagement Award (Rhodes Community Engagement Award). Thanks goes to all those that nominated me and to Rhodes University for considering me for the awards.
