Faeed Amardien

Faeed Amardien has been living in Parkwood on the Cape Flats for a long time. He obtained his bachelor’s degree in education (B.Ed.) from the Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) in 2020 with Afrikaans and Accounting as major subjects. He is currently undertaking his honours in education at UWC with linguistics and literature as fields of specialisation. As a young teacher at Plumstead High, the diverse backgrounds and cultures of his learners affect him deeply. His approach to education is creative and also includes the use of Kaaps as a means of making his learners experience the wonders of language. This is why he is focused on young people and writing a youth novel.
