She plans to follow her passion of helping sickly people by studying medicine at the Nelson Mandela School of Medicine. Talking about her secret recipe to excelling in her studies, she said prayer and being focused on her goal helped her achieve seven distinctions.

“My passion and drive for helping people made me decide on the direction of medicine. It has always been my heart’s dream to help sick people get better,” she said. When she is not studying, she said she loves spending time with family, reading or appreciating nature.

The humble Morningside resident who is the youngest of two siblings in her family thanked all her loved ones for support throughout her matric year.
