Hannah earned an honors degree in politics after studying political science and philosophy at the university. “I’ve always felt a deep need to contribute to humanitarian causes,” she says, “which prompted me to get involved in outreach at university. “[My] desire has always been to serve as a public servant, to be active in finding solutions to South Africa’s various difficulties while using the platform provided to help as many people as possible.”
To that purpose, she joined the Democratic Alliance (DA) and worked in a variety of capacities, including research, media, operations, and management, until being elected to the House of Commons in 2019. She has served on the Portfolio Committee on Environmental Affairs, Forestry, and Fisheries, and she is currently a member of the Portfolio Committee on Agriculture.
