Thalia Holmes

Thalia is a business reporter for the Mail & Guardian. She grew up in Swaziland and lived in the US before returning to South Africa. She studied a degree in marketing and followed it with another in English literature and psychology before further confusing things by becoming a black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) consultant. After spending five years hearing the surprised exclamation, "But you're white!", she decided to pursue her latent passion for journalism. She spent a year as an intern for the M&G before joining the business desk. She hasn't looked back since.
