ALUMNA NAIDOO AIMS TO BE A LINE PRODUCER AND WRITER
Speaking to Alumna Alicia Naidoo, 23, who is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Journalism at the Durban University of Technology (DUT).

I wanted to travel, adventure and excitement and that’s how I knew journalism was for me. There’s that balance between the office space and actually going out. Working in television you often go out on shoots so there is that balance,” she said.
