Sandy Harvey

Sandy Harvey has a lifelong passion for writing and found this highly satisfactory years ago when encouraged by her colleagues to create articles for the College magazine and preparing presentations related to animal anti-cruelty and environmental protection.

In later years she was excited at the prospect of taking journalism to a higher level and is inspired by researching and digesting topics across the board.

Her years of lecturing in the beauty industry have been of great advantage in sharing her knowledge when writing for the cosmetic industry, proudly for the Matsimela brand.

She has discovered that perfecting the art of writing is fascinating as there is unlimited knowledge out there to be explored, one never stagnates and the satisfaction of sharing this with others is a joy in itself.
