Zyma Amien

Zyma Amien was born in Landsdowne and attended Cathkin High School in Heideveld from 1976 - 1980. Her poltical awareness was shaped by the environment in which she she grew up. 

 

Even though she qualified  as a Medical Technologist specialising in Blood Transfusion, she found art to be a means to express her dire concerns.

 

Zyma Amien won the Sasol New Signature award in 2016 and is currently a lecturer at UNISA.
