UNIZULU students who excelled in their junior degrees last year are looking forward to completing their Honours degrees.
Ntamo Yonela, 21, from Eastern Cape said there were no miracles, but dedication and determination helped her to become one of the top achievers in her biochemistry and microbiology degree.
“It was not easy but complaining about difficulties won’t help. I just worked very hard to achieve my degree with distinction,” said Yonela.
She added that having good lecturers and supportive family helped. Her dream is to become a molecular biologist.
Amsha Viraragavan, 21, from Felixton was one of highest achievers. She said to succeed you need to focus and persevere. “The journey was not easy but I knew why I was here, and what I wanted to be in the near future. Supportive family members, lecturers and good friends helped to make me a star.”
