My name is Lee-Ann Joubert, originally from Port Alfred and I am 23 years old. I chose Stenden because of my passion to study Disaster Management, and I always knew I wanted to work within the emergency management sector. I enjoyed the whole experience of studying at Stenden, the organisation’s culture and diversity added to the uniqueness of the campus.
I did my Internship at the Garden Route District Municipality (GRDM) for 8 month and my contract got extended for another year. I am fortunate enough to be back at the GRDM and was recently appointed as a Disaster Management Officer. I am looking forward to this new journey of my life and excited to actually do what I studied for. I would like to give credit and to, and thank Mr Pieter Smit (Career Development Coach) as he was with me throughout my journey at Stenden, until my full time employment at the Garden Route District Municipality.
