Law Graduate and Radio Show Host Aiming High
As an icon for youth empowerment through her show Teen Zone on Ukhozi FM, Law graduate Boniswa Moto says success begins with education.
Moto who hails from Umzimkhulu, South of KwaZulu-Natal says that she initially thought she had made a mistake in choosing Law but changed her mind when she decided to take the School of Law slogan “Law is not just for Lawyers” to heart and enthusiastically looked forward to the wonderful opportunities an LLB will open for her.
‘I was unhappy with Law at first until I saw the slogan on one of the Law School banners. That was a turning point for me as I realised that when I completed the degree I will be able to expand my potential as wide as possible. That realisation made me continue with my LLB more enthusiastically,’ she said.
Moto, whose broadcasting career began at a local community radio station, said she enjoys using radio as a platform to connect and inspire the youth.
‘When I joined Inanda FM at the age of 19, I was the stations youngest presenter at that time and so it was only fitting that I did the teenagers show. Radio is a platform I am very passionate about and I plan to continue with my radio career,’ she said.
From law to radio and now business - these are Moto’s plans as she wants to pursue a business administration qualification next semester.
‘My long-term plan is to one day be my own boss, create job opportunities and develop my rural community in all ways possible to me,’ she said.
