S.E.T. for socio-economic growth
Andile sees himself working as a doctor and running a programme in his community that will make people’s lives better.
I am a 17-year-old male who is currently studying Medicine at UCT. I reside in Botha’s Hill, KwaZulu-Natal where I completed my primary education. I then relocated to Adams Mission in 2018 so that I could study at Adams College where I matriculated. My family inspires and motivates me to study hard and to try to make a difference in my community, just like the person I admire the most.
Since early childhood, becoming a doctor was my dream. As I grew up my curiosity and passion grew in strength and I ended up choosing medicine.
In 10 years from now I see myself working as a doctor and running a programme in my community that will make people’s lives better.
I enjoy maths and science because they are challenging, thus they develop problem-solving skill. They also answer some of our childhood questions about mysteries.
I matriculated at Adams College in Amanzimtoti. It has an outstanding history of producing successful people and that is why I chose to enroll there. My teachers were working overtime trying to ensure that we leave high school with exceptional results.
Maths and science require understanding and application. Maybe when they read, they do not try to make sense of it and then they are not able to apply the information. Also, not amalgamating topics could be a cause because the topics are all connected in some way.
Have extra classes, they really help a lot. Manage your time well so that you will have time to do past papers. There are also Apps in the Play Store that they can download for practice.
Helping each other is the key. They must be willing to assist or be assisted by their peers and also pester teachers for help if there is something they don’t understand. Attending extra classes on weekends could also be a wise decision. Enjoy studying and study for knowledge not the CPR thing (Cram Pass Forget).
There is a lot of competition for space, so they must do their best in NSC exams so that they will get accepted in institutions of higher education.
I think I am an achiever because I’m committed to my goals and passionate. I am prepared to take risks in order to achieve my goals.
“A candle doesn’t lose anything when lighting up another candle, but the dark space becomes luminous.” So let us help each other, work hard so that we all make it in life.
Sisi Sbu, I am where I am because of her. She took me to boarding school and sourced sponsors who paid for my school fees. All I could say to her is that she has a golden heart and I pass on my gratitude to her for shaping my life and may God be with her.
