Studying at UKZN a Beautiful Adventure – says Cum Laude Graduate
‘Studying at UKZN was a beautiful adventure. Besides providing me with an abundance of academic knowledge, it also gave me an opportunity for self-development.’
This is according to Ms Suvishka Barath, who was awarded a Bachelor of Audiology degree cum laude.
Barath heard about the Audiology Discipline through a relative and was captured by the idea of being able to improve or give an individual the gift of hearing.
She says her family - especially her mother - was her pillar of support throughout her academic journey.
‘I gathered my strength from God and my mother,’ said Barath. ‘My mom has been instrumental in every step of my life - a true inspiration, always reminding me to put in the hard work no matter the outcome, as I will reap the benefits in the future.’
Currently completing her community service at KwaMashu Polyclinic, Barath hopes to read for a Master’s degree in Audiology.
