There is no stronger force than a group of passionate people who want to transform the world. I am proud to join such a group.


Amy Booth graduated as a medical doctor from the University of Cape Town, summa cum laude and gold medalist. During her studies, she was actively involved in leadership and societies, winning several awards including the Vice-Chancellors Leadership Award, a Social Responsiveness Award, and the Klaus Jurgen-Bathe Leadership Scholarship. She practiced medicine for several years, working on the frontline during the pandemic. She was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship and is currently doing her PhD at the University of Oxford, looking at how to reduce the carbon footprint of health systems. For this work, she has been invited to speak on national and international platforms and has published several peer-reviewed articles on the topic. She has also previously worked with the WHO, looking at the role of the environment on anti-microbial resistance. She sits on the Board of Trustees for her high school, where she runs a scholarship programme.
