Yanda Bango

Bango 2013

I was born in the beautiful, underrated and underdeveloped city of Mthatha (Eastern Cape) but have had the experience of living in different cities in an outside the Eastern Cape, throughout my life. I have been at Rhodes since 2009; I did a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in Politics and Industrial and Economic Sociology. I further completed a BA Honours in Development Studies. I am now in my first year of Masters in Development Studies and also working as a Teaching Assistant in the department.  

My research interest is in youth development, youth involvement in South African social and political issues and to what extent we as youth are using our agency as citizens to secure a more stable future for our generation and the next ones to come.
