Ndapwa Alweendo is currently completing a Masters degree at Rhodes University. She grew up in Namibia, where a brief and near-accidental foray into journalism led her to study political theory. While her research focuses on the intersections of race, class and gender, she has a particular interest in how memory continues to shape the world we live in.
