Yesterday, I blogged about how Miss SA (and pageants in general) attract our attention to causes we might otherwise never have heard of. Today I’d like to see if I can do the same thing.

It’s hard. At school and in any tertiary learning experience, every year presents new lessons, growth and change. It keeps you humble, and it gets you learning-fit. But then you leave that rhythm behind and the risk of falling into all kinds of comfort zones is EVERYWHERE….
