I’ve started my career as a student in journalism in South Africa in 2001 at Rhodes University in Grahamstown ( Eastern Cape). With a bachelor degree in Communication and Information obtained in France, my native country, I’ve decided to learn investigative journalism in South Africa. So I followed a one year intensive course, studiying journalism specialized on TV, but also Writing and Editing and New Media. During my studies, I followed two internships in Johannesburg. One with Business Day ,a well known South African economic media and the other with Agence France Presse (AFP).
