THE NEW DAWN
My name is Lethabo Moropene. I am a 24-year-old from Hammarskraal, Pretoria. I am an artist and science graduate. I am a born problem solver with natural curiosity. This and the need to get hands-on experience led to me studying sciences. I am also a visual artist who uses different media for different reasons – to tell a story, express my emotions, and to make people laugh. I use art to communicate. I am both an artist and a scientist – I like to refer to myself as “A Doer”.
This is a collection of four images.
