I am Nyx McLean, a Makhandan by birth, a former Victoria Girls’ High School pupil, and a Rhodes School of Journalism and Media Studies graduate.
I have lived in Johannesburg and Cape Town for the last decade, working as an editor, digital strategist, and recently as a lecturer, supervisor, and researcher in multimedia and digital culture.
I am joining the Grocott’s staff to assist with social media engagement and innovation, mentoring student journalists in creating social media content, and all the challenges and opportunities that may go along with this.
My work is intersectional and driven by a need to address social justice issues and develop and sustain a sense of community and belonging.
