A third year Journalism and Media Studies Student at the University of Malawi— The Polytechnic, Tamanda Kanjaye has been selected to attend the Eight African Cities for Afro Young Adult Workshops.

Kanjaye’s story titled A Change in Sleeping Arrangements earned her place on the possible list of being featured in an anthology by young adults across Africa.
