About Alida graduated at the end of 2010 from the University of Pretoria as a journalist, specialising in Heritage and Cultural Tourism. She took this specialisation further with an honours degree in Heritage and Cultural Tourism, which she passed with distinction in 2014. She also completed an online short course (10 weeks, presented by the University of Cape Town via GetSmarter) in WordPress web development. Alida is currently working full-time at Fantasi Books, a children’s book publisher. Some of her informal writing can be read here. These were not published anywhere. Most of it is in Afrikaans, and most of them are opinion pieces, but adding a few pages to the English side of the scale is on Alida’s to-do list for 2016. Please feel free to contact Alida, should you have any questions.
