Pharmacy Student Receives Pius Langa Award
It is such an honour to receive the prestigious Pius Langa Scholarship award, says BPharm student. Mr Travis Lee Ajodha.
The scholarship, awarded to top performing new undergraduate entrants, is named after the renowned former Chief Justice of South Africa, the last Chancellor of the University of Natal and the first Ombud of UKZN.
‘It was such euphoric feeling when I got the news and I felt blessed,’ said Ajodha. His family was proud and equally happy about his achievement.
He said the scholarship was a blessing from God, ‘I believe He is the one that provided it for my hard work. God is my strength and keeps me going while my family are my pillars and they keep me motivated always.’
Ajodha advised his fellow students to persevere and to do their very best, ‘We all have the potential to achieve, and we just need to fix our eyes on the prize.’
He said he was extremely grateful to the award funders, ‘I pray that they stay blessed and continue to change students’ lives.’
Ajodha loves studying, watching TV, spending time with his family, going to church and playing chess. ‘I have two amazing parents who are my inspiration and three siblings who are my best friends.
‘In life we may not always win but sometimes it's not only the winners but also the sacrifices and efforts that become legendary,’ he said.
