Oteng Mpete

Nickname: 'Otee'

AudioVisual Specialist and Writer


Currently resides in: Free State, South Africa

Born in Johannesburg South Africa

I am a young and enthusiastic journalist but I am better known as, Oteng Mpete. I completed my B.A Media Studies and Journalism degree at the University of the Free State.
I had worked for the university since my first year, working as a campus reporter for Kampus Volksblad, Irawa Student Publication, a news-compiler and news reader for Kovsie FM.
During my last year at the institution I tried my hand at student leadership and become part of my residences’ representative council. I was one of four interns being trained for four months at the Volksblad in Bloemfontein, where I learned the ropes of newspaper journalism but mainly page layout and sub-editing.
I know all about hard work, strict deadlines, discipline, working within a diverse newsroom, and most importantly drive and ambition. I am self-motivated and extremely charismatic.
I value my tertiary education because it did not come cheap nor did it come easy. The analytical skills I have learned and the principals I possess from the institution where I studied make me a holistically well rounded individual, who believes that I deserve to be in a part of a company that appreciates well groomed individuals.
I have an outgoing personality and I am an extrovert. I am a well versed speaker with an internal thesaurus to match, I appreciate all the small blessings of each day and I have a good working ethic. I am always looking for a new challenge, hardly ever saying no to learn a new skill, I will to go above and beyond the call of duty.
Working while at university has helped me develop good communication skills, and to communicate with people of all ages and in different languages. I adapt very quickly to new environments, I take everything that comes my way day by day.
I was a full-time subeditor and page layout artist for Media24's Volksblad Group, I pride myself in creating great visual content that is consistent, likable, eye-catching and gets the story across.
