UKZN Attracts Matric Star to Study Electronic Engineering
A self-confessed dreamer, Ms Naymah Sameen feels that despite getting a 92% aggregate in matric she could have done better!
With a total of eight distinctions in her National Senior Certificate exams, she was always inspired and motivated by technology. ‘The power of human-developed artificial intelligence, electronic communication systems and their ever rising, rapid progress and domination in the modern market, led me to choose a career in Electronic Engineering,’ said Sameen.
Her older sister, who is completing her final year of Chemical Engineering at UKZN, is her role model. ‘My sister’s immense dedication to her academic career is what I call “positive fanaticism”, and even though I do not think I will be able to reach her degree of dedication, I will try my best to get as close to it as possible.’
Sameen, who is motivated by her faith in God, is extremely hardworking. Her parents and educators have been great motivators for her.
Sameen enjoys fashion designing, craft making and cooking. ‘We should never segregate the many factions in our lives. True success, I believe, is achieved once you learn how to combine values of reverence for humanity, spirituality, obligation, generosity and dedication in any field of human endeavour, thereby emancipating yourself into the greater world of excellence, which is where we all belong.’
