S.E.T. for socio-economic growth
I realised that I enjoyed maths and science above other subjects when I was in grade 10. My maths teacher, Mrs Bothma, taught maths in way that required you to analyse and be creative in the way you visualised and understood concepts. I think this is the reason I enjoyed maths and science: I could be logical and imaginative.
I attended Steelcrest High School. I believe that my school is special because it brings out the best in its students, of various talents. The school’s motto is “We strive for excellence”.
I worked consistently throughout the year.
My best friend, Aishwarya, inspires me. She is absolutely brilliant. She has an immense respect for and values education. I, myself, have learnt and adopted these values from her. She also taught me that nothing is worth compromising who you are and how you feel. It is very important to have the right friends during our formative years as they make us who we are.
Make sure that you fully understand the course that you are committing to and what it entails in the short term as well as the long term. Do your research before applying.
I am studying medicine at Wits. I enjoy learning and studying in general but I chose a course that I thought I would be best at.
In 5 years I will be completing the final year of my degree.
