My name is Rirhandzu Marivate.
I have been called by many names, Rhandzu, Randzo, Ranzo, Ri, Rara, and Rando, to name a few.
I am a black girl from Ga-Rankuwa, South Africa.
My father calls me a nomad. I was born with wanderlust. I am an explorer.
I do not ever want to imagine myself as one thing. I have many hats I put on, but there are three that really stand out; one, as an ecologist and environmental scientist; two, as an active young South African focused on community development; three, as a creative using photography as a medium of expression. I imagine in future to have gained more.
I love exploring new places and meeting new faces, be it at home or away. The journey thus far, has been spectacular. It has made me appreciate even the smallest of things in my daily life.
I have been blessed with the opportunity to witness the world.
I hope this platform will serve to convey some of my experiences.
