I recently entered the Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year competition which I discovered through an advert on Facebook. I have followed Africa Geographic for a while now and love reading their articles and I dream of the day I can return to the continent that stole my heart!
In January 2015 I spent 2 weeks of my placement year volunteering in a wildlife rehabilitation centre in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, and it was one of the best experiences of my life!

2. Traditional Culture
I submitted all 3 of my images to the wildlife category. The competition is open up until May so I won’t hear back from them for a while – fingers crossed I get somewhere with it!
