She started photography at the age of 18, where she used to visualize stories using her old Samsung S4 phone. In 2018, she started her first year at City Varsity School of Film and Drama. Moeketsi enrolled and completed the Photojournalism and Documentary Photography Program at The Market Photo Workshop in 2020.

Moeketsi's passion is human interest stories. She aims to use the medium of photography to tell the stories of ordinary people in their own language.
