Thula Zondi (Junior Communications Officer)
What are your background expertise and how does that relate to what you’re doing now?
I studied Journalism and upon completion, I worked briefly at Media24's Digital Magazines before I moved on to develop my career in Communications which I found to be fulfilling and more aligned with my goals. Since then, I feel the combination of the two (Journalism and Communications) will definitely serve as a great foundation for my role here at GreenCape.
What kind of impact are you hoping to have at GreenCape with this role?
I am hoping to come in with some innovative ideas, to share as much information among my team, and to hopefully learn as much as possible in the process.
What have you been working on since you’ve joined us here at GreenCape?
I have been getting myself acquainted with the MailChimp software. I am currently building internal relationships with colleagues. I am also working on some content planning as well as blogging.
Why have you chosen this particular career path?
Firstly, I enjoy this kind of work and I feel like I will achieve more in this space than anywhere else.
Considering the that you’ve started at GreenCape during a national lockdown and you haven’t yet had a chance to be at the office to physically interact with the rest of the team, what has been your first impression of GreenCape so far?
I feel like everyone is quiet cool and very accommodating. The entire team is generous with their time; I don’t even feel the distance between us because of the ease of communication.
What are your hobbies?
I really enjoy writing. In my spare time, I am reading, listening or attending live poetry events.
