How did your studies prepare you for the workplace?

It enabled me to transfer most of my skills/knowledge acquired during my time of studies as a HR student, it prepared me to work better in teams, manage my time better (time management) in order to ensure that I hand in my reports in on time.


What was the most valuable thing you learnt while studying?

The most valuable lessons I learnt whilst being at varsity is that each and every individual is different and that we have to treat everyone with the respect/fairness that they deserve, talk less and listen more and to also give your best in everything you do regardless of how difficult or challenging the task is, it also taught me that I can and will achieve everything I set my mind too.


Do you have any advice for current students?

“Too many people go through life hating their jobs, never realizing their potential, and never following their dreams” so the best advice I can give to you as a student is to be true to who you are and what you love, follow your dreams and always put your best foot forward.
