We would like to welcome our newest staff member, Samantha Bath. She was born in Pietermaritsburg and grew up in Cape Town before attending university in Stellenbosch. Studying politics, she became part of an outspoken group of students on campus who raised some of the issues faced by first generation students in integrating into campus life. University management responded by creating the Unit for Multiculturalism and Diversity, for which she then worked for 2 years. After 6 years in Stellenbosch, believing it was time to spread her wings a bit, Samantha moved to Korea to be an English teacher in public elementary schools for four years. Upon returning home to Cape Town, she started volunteering at the Scalabrini Center as an English teacher, where she now works as the assistant manager of the English school organizing the English Alive co-curricular program.
