Khoza obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Media and Writing and English at the University of Cape Town (UCT).

You learn about life, as you learn about English.

She said studying in the Humanities forced her to think long and hard about her career prospects.

After furthering her studies in London and Scotland, Khoza says she grew up very quickly and deepened her love for linguistics.

She then returned to South Africa to work in the corporate field doing management consulting for five years, and then later worked in public relations work and reputation management, before giving birth to Mint Language.

Language is a function in every business. There's a business case for impact language.
