So far, you’ve known us simply as a group of TV students at Rhodes University, but now you get to meet the individuals that make our team what it is. There are 12 of us all together, and everyone has something unique to add, and something to say about the world and what we hope to do to improve it and ourselves.
Drumroll please….. meet Ghettoverit.

I’m the token white, Namibian, Afrikaans-speaking loser. And I’m proud. Sometimes a little too proud. Annoyingly so actually. I am also passionate about Television Journalism. (Haha. The department forbid us from using the statement “passionate about Journalism”… They should ghettoverit.) I love my mom, and my tut group, and cheese. I want to be a fire-fighter when I grow up. And a documentary film-maker. And president of the world. To all my peeps on the (South)Westside: Peace Out.
Koketso ‘KK’ Potsane
My name is Koketso but some dumb white guy couldn’t pronounce my name, so now everyone just calls me KK! Alna is my only Afrikaner friend… we’re doing it for the struggle. I am a film-maker. I like beer. Lots of beer. All the time…
Pls fill in here.
Bianca ‘Bee’ Silva
Hey, I’m Bianca, and although I may look like a scary hippy gym instructor, I have to assure you that it is not my usual look. I am one of the more stubborn and curious people I have met. I think that is why I am a journalist, determined to see the world and to show it to people and hope that somehow I can make a difference. I do know how naive that sounds but as I said before I’m stubborn, which means I may achieve it, that and the fact that I won’t stop until I do. I’m loyal and very opinionated, always want to see the other side of anything. Can’t stay in one place for long, have yet to establish whether that is ADD but for now I’d like to call it itchy feet. Cape Town however is my home, I’d just like the rest of the world to be my playground. Oh and without music I think my soul would die. There are never enough hours in the day to do anything but I guess that is what happens when you marry yourself to a newspaper, especially a student newspaper. Whoever said women are demanding should take on a newspaper, I assure you there are far worse things than paper cuts. I drink too much coffee, sleep too little and love too much. But mostly I’m me and unique just like everyone else.
I’m the perfectionist with big hair. I’d like to do a number of things after completing my journalism degree: like travel to Mexico to drink tequilla and wear sombreros. I come from Cape Town, where people generally don’t wear sombreros… pity really. I like finger painting, blowing bubbles, afternoon picnics and pink shoes. I spend most of my time in the journalism department, I think its the mounted hats, fluorescent lighting and air conditioning that makes me feel safe. If I wasnt a journalist, I’d be a mermaid.
Hi everyone, I’m Lloyd. As you can see, I spend some of my time flying around in a cape. The rest of the time I’ll be found in Grahamstown’s local hot spots, from the journalism department to the Rat. I have a funny British accent too. It’s weird.
Please fill in.

Hey there people. I’m the crazy chick kzn chick with an attitude. After completing this thing called a degree I plan on becoming a rocket scientist or better yet a freelance comedian for the once exisiting Pure Monate show. Good times are my thing so if you’re down with that holler at a sister!!
well let’s start by saying that I usually don’t prance around with dolops of thick scew eyeliner and a floral tablecloth around my shoulders…I usually opt for other elaborate attire like feather boas and fairy wings, but only for special occassions like breakfast. Ok, jokes aside I’m a third year tv journ and sociology student, and I’m from Johannesburg… but don’t like it much cos I enjoy fresh air and down to earth people =0P Oh and I simply love lasagne…sell my limbs for some now in fact…
