FHSS High Flier Aiming to Attain a Doctorate One Day
Nonjabulo Nonkululeko Mkhize (20) from Escourt, KwaZulu-Natal is standing tall after emerging as the top second-year student in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Science for the year 2022. She achieved a commendable 86.6% in her studies.
Asked what motivated her to attain such an impressive overall mark, Mkhize, who is currently embarking on her third year of the BA Psychology degree, said her dream to one day assume the title “Dr Mkhize”.
She is determined to dedicate more hours to her schoolwork in her final year. Her passion for the psychology profession is bound to see her through the year with ease. “I can’t say I was influenced by anyone to do psychology. I did this cause because I love assisting people. Being a psychologist will always keep me interacting with people,” Mkhize said.
To make sure they improve their academic performance, Mkhize advised her fellow UNIZULU students to find a study method that works for them and stick to it. “We are different. We [have] different IQs, meaning the techniques and tactics we use for studying are different. One must [therefore] do what they [works best for them],” Mkhize emphasised.
She concluded that students should try by all means to overcome the problems they come across and not allow their social life to interfere with their academics. They should only be pushed by the goal of changing their situations instead of making them what hinder them from achieving all they want to achieve in life.
