UWC not only encourages responsibility but independence
What do you enjoy most about life at Waterford Kamhlaba UWC?
The thing that I enjoy the most is the freedom given to students. As a school, we pride ourselves on the high number of student-led groups and activities. UWC not only encourages responsibility but independence too.
What’s been the hardest or most challenging part?
As I've come to realise with the IB, the school has so much to offer yet there isn't enough time to do it all. The most difficult part about being a student here is finding the balance between school life, my social life and my responsibility to the community I live in.
What subjects are you taking?
In the IB programme, I have chosen to do Geography, Business Management and English at Higher Level. At Standard Level I chose to do Mathematics, Environmental Systems and Societies and SiSwati ab initio.
What other activities are you involved in?
I play for the school's senior netball team as the goalkeeper and I have just started taking karate classes. I am also an active member of the Gender Awareness Programme and the Slam Poetry Society for the past year.
What are your ambitions after you leave Waterford Kamhlaba UWC?
I hope to go to a European University, major in Business Management and take a course on Event Management and Planning. After receiving my Masters, I'd like to work for a few years before venturing out to start my own Event Management and Communications firm in my home country, Tanzania. Before I retire I would also like to get into some NGO work and perhaps start a Publications company.
