On behalf of the entire body of the Young Earth Scientist (YES) Network, South Africa chapter, we will love to wish every YES member a prosperous new year 2017 that will be filled with unspeakable joy and seismic-range advancement in all ramifications.
We will also love to introduce to you our new national coordinator, Mr Zakhele
“A hearty greeting to all SA YES NETWORK Members!
As we welcome the New Year, I thought I’d send my first official greeting to all members of YES Network (SA Chapter). I recently assumed the position of President and National Representative of the SA YES Network and I look forward to the next 2 years of serving and growing this network of young earth scientists.
So, who am I? Well in a nutshell, I grew up in Soweto and went on to adopt the University Pretoria as my second home, where I am currently pursuing my postgraduate studies in climate change related research. Apart from being a rock-star, I enjoy reading (A LOT) and cooking – as well as the eating thereafter. My biggest wish is to (time) travel as much as possible. My colleagues and I look forward to an exciting and fruitful 2017, and I hope you will join us in making this YES Chapter exemplary.”
