Limpho Grace Khaile -March 2018 -present

My name is Limpho Grace Khaile, I am dual citizen of the Republic of South Africa and the United Kingdom. I am a final year student at the Royal Holloway University of London, completing an undergraduate BA degree in History and International Relations. I intend to commence a GDL (Graduate Diploma in Law) conversion course in next academic year.


In the future, my desired career would be work as a lawyer for international organisations such as the United Nations, WFP (World Food Programme) and the IOM (the International Organisation for Migration) which are focused on solving any human rights violations.


I have a deep passion for advocating and exposing any form of discrimination that the African-Caribbean diaspora face in the western world. I would also like to engage with policy work that impacts the African-Caribbean diaspora.
