Jenna lived, studied and worked in beautiful, Cape Town, South Africa until the end of 2015. She studied at the University of Cape Town where she spent her time embracing a variety of humanities subjects.

She has taught English, drama, art history and theory of knowledge at a variety of secondary schools across South Africa and has taught in both The Hague and Rotterdam in the Netherlands - this is her fourth year at NAISR.
She is an ardent lover of poetry and has published two autobiographical anthologies and writes a blog in her free time.
