Testimonials

Vivienne Jane (Former lecture)

""Buchule was a Media and Journalism student at the Independent Institute of Education who excelled in his work and as editor of the campus magazine. During that time, he was also a freelance co-host and producer at Arise & Shine at Radio Tygerberg. He had already created his own blog as a student and now has his own web-site and an online magazine.

His articles and photographs of celebrities not only grace his own sites but have also been used by established media such as Drum magazine. He is an entrepreneur who creates opportunities and throws himself into projects with enthusiasm.

These days, when I see Buchule on campus it is when he has accepted my invitation of being a guest speaker to my Media and Journalism students." -
