DAG is all about developing for the better – not just developing our cities, but also developing oneself – to help build a better society.
Sharon is an intern at DAG and assists with socio-technical support to community-based organisations. She is passionate about placemaking and creating gender equal environments for women and girls. She is a graduate from City Planning (Hons) at University of Cape Town and has a background in architecture. Her previous work experience includes volunteering at the PHA Food and Farming Campaign, where she helped to conceptualise designs of farmlands along the urban edge for subsistence farming to prevent urban encroachment. She enjoys working at DAG because the organisation is value driven and attends to what the communities have to say. This allows her to develop her skills while putting people first.
