Motivated by inclusion my mission is to use my passion for others and their differences to bring about lasting change. I aim to promote non-discrimination and substantive equality in as many forums as possible.”
Warona Mtjila, who achieved seven distinctions, says, “Matric was by far the most challenging year in my school career, from the gruelling workload to immense preparation required for the three sets of exams, time management, dedication and work ethic. However, because I was forced to work consistently throughout the year I found the Finals manageable. I’ve applied to study Accounting Sciences at University of Pretoria this year as I hope to qualify as a chartered accountant.”

I hope to obtain my masters and eventually my PhD in astrophysics and contribute to space missions, analyse astronomical data gathered from telescopes and satellites, and be part of projects exploring the cosmos.”
