The GoTrend Team

Here at GoTrend we write because we can! Writing enthusiasts are often the most disregarded as apart of the Journalism community, so here at GoTrend we have an open platform to display what we’ve got. If you’re interested in writing along with us, then why not drop us a mail!

The GoTrend team works in sync with everyday life, capturing pieces of news along the way. Our aim is to provide the South African person with activities and information that are relevant to the people living in our lovely country of South Africa. We love a good story, interview or event and we’re going to make sure you get all the juicy details!

To know GoTrend, you should know our people!
