About Me

Who am I, you ask?



Born and raised here, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I love this city and what it has to offer.


It’s my goal to explore Pretoria in search of cool things to do and places to go to. And if you think I’m missing something, reach out in the contact section and I’ll put on my Dora-the-explorer-hat!


WHAT ELSE?Ilka Steyn

I have a BA (Hons) degree in Drama and Film studies – where I majored in Writing for the Media. This was followed by a PGCE diploma in Arts and Languages.


My love for writing encouraged me to take English and Afrikaans – as extra subjects – while finishing my degree at the Pretoria University. Understanding a language enables you to play like an artist with words like a painter will play with their paint.


My love for writing and creating grew stronger during my four years as a high school teacher and I’m now working full-time as a writer, lecturer, and digital creator.


I created this digital world to share my stories and creativity, while offering the following services:

  • content writing,
  • scripts,
  • digital illustrations,
  • and the designing of logos and social media content.


Take a look at my Facebook Page to see some of the work I’ve done! Just get in touch if I can help you with your writing or designing needs.
