Twins Parrol and Penuel Adam have graduated with Bachelor’s degrees in Community Development while Mpilonde and Mpilonhle Ncube graduated with Bachelor of Arts degrees.

The Adam twins chose to pursue this particular degree to help uplift the community in Ntuzuma where they are from. 

‘We have a passion for community upliftment, especially helping the youth get educated and make a success of their lives. Youngsters need to know they can be anything they want to be as long as they put in the hard work,’ said Parrol. 

‘We have worked really hard to get this degree. Our family has been there for us through it all and we are grateful for their support,’ said Penuel. 

The twins advised other students to work hard and ensure they reach their goals. 

On their future plans, Parrol said: ‘We are planning to pursue postgraduate degrees but at the moment we are busy trying to establish a non-profit organisation in our community that caters for the youth.’ 

The Ncube twins, who hail from Savannah Park in Durban, could not bear to be apart from each other, choosing then to study towards a Bachelor of Arts degree together. ‘We’re very close so it was only natural to want to study together. We’re even registered to do postgraduate studies in the same field,’ said Mpilonhle.

Agreeing with her sister, Mpilonde added, ‘UKZN was always our first choice. There’s no doubt about that. We were really under pressure to complete all our modules on time so we could graduate together. We finally did! And it feels so amazing. I love my sister and I am so glad we are on this academic journey together.’
