  • Christy is an activist, researcher, and writer. She holds B.A. and LL.B. degrees from the University of Johannesburg and is currently completing her M.A. in Migration and Displacement at the University of the Witwatersrand as a Mandela Rhodes Foundation Scholar.

    Before joining Power Singh Inc., Christy worked as an intern at SECTION27 where she worked on matters relating to the right to basic education (2018-2019). Thereafter, Christy completed an internship at Lawyers for Human Rights as part of the Refugee and Migrant Rights Programme where she consulted clients and drafted submissions to refugee appeal bodies (2019). Most recently, Christy clerked at the Constitutional Court of South Africa (2022, Justice Steven Majiedt), as a foreign clerk for six months.
