High hopes for the Class of 2011

Jason Erasmus,
Hoër Tegniese Skool John Vorster

I would like to study Quantity Surveying at the University of Pretoria next year. I’m looking forward to the student life that awaits me. My dream is to succeed in my profession as quantity surveyor and have my own company one day. I would like to encourage every matric student to do his or her best with the exams, because your future depends on it. Remember, dream your dream, no one can take it away from you!

Ntombikayise Tshabangu,
Hoërskool FH Odendaal

I have a choice to study either at Midrand Graduate Institute or go to Tshwane University of Technology to study Information Technology. I’m looking forward to new challenges as a first-year tertiary student and attending my lectures where studying will be my own responsibility. I’m excited about meeting people from different walks of life and getting to know more about the diversity of Mzansi.

Juan Rall,
Durban High School

I would like to be an electrical engineer. I’m going to study at an electrical training academy in Umbilo, Durban. I’m very excited about the new year because 2012 means I’m going to be finished with school and I’m hoping it will be a good year for me. After studying I want to explore new possibilities within the electrical field and hopefully start my own business one day

Manika Moodliar,
Durban Girls’ High School

Next year, I ‘m going to the University of Cape Town to do a Bachelor of Science degree. I wish to major in Astrophysics and I hope to one day go into research after doing my honours and masters – and even PhD, who knows!!

Geraldine Moodley,
Stanger Manor Secondary School

There are so many career choices that inspire me especially Occupational Therapy. So I have decided to take a break in 2012 and go on a soul-searching journey. As young as I am, I find myself being a very diverse person. I want to know who I am and discover my true passion before I start university; the stepping stone to my future.

Yolisa Nyathikazi,
Hoërskool Langenhoven

I’m super excited about 2012 because I’ll be focusing on the thing I love most, professional make-up design.  I will be studying at Kohl make-up academy in Johannesburg and after that I will be studying research and development because I want to start my own make-up line for black skin. For me, next year is the year I make my dreams come true with hard work all the way.

Zamuxolo Masiya,
Christian Progressive College

To me, leaving high school is a 12-year chapter that I invested in and it’s been an adventure. It’s said that “No matter how much you hate high school you’ll miss it when you leave” and I’m going to miss it. But it’s about time I use living organisms to enhance crops, fuel, medical treatment and host tools that can and will help humans as I will be enrolling as a Biotech student. I think varsity life will be exciting.
