YJI Gives The Inside Story on Peaceful South African Student Protest
When she's not a busy medical student at Stellenbosch University in Cape Town, South Africa, Mariechen Puchert is a senior reporter for Youth Journalism International.
So committed is Mariechen that she paid a visit in June to YJI's Connecticut headquarters to meet us and a lot of other YJI students and alumni. YJI is, after all, a very friendly and welcoming bunch!
Students at Mariechen's university held a peaceful protest recently about increases in tuition and student fees. She wrote about it for YJI and took this photo of Stephan Nel. You can check out what she wrote, as well as a few more photos, at this link: http://tinyurl.com/39nl8af
