Meet UKZN’s Youngest 2020 Graduate
Just 19 and already a University graduate – that’s the proud achievement of Ms Clermentine Ngidi.
Passionate about music, the performing arts and a dream to build an arts centre in her hometown of Gamalakhe near Port Shepstone, Ms Silindile Shazi was thrilled when she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree.
‘I was also on a spiritual journey of growth. I had to go through phases of training on the road to become a diviner/healer. That is never easy, it can disturb your life in many ways and for a student it’s worse,’ explained Gasa.
The attitudes of students towards “blesser-blessee” relationships, the reasons why people engage in these relationships and the opportunities and constraints for changing such relationships were subjects of research for a master’s degree.
Ms Sonke Magadlela, who graduated from UKZN with a Bachelor of Social Sciences degree, says she learned a lot about human behaviour during her studies and now feels equipped with the necessary skills to take on leadership roles in her community.
