I am a current student at University of Cape town not yet registered due to lack of funds and that there are no financial aid for my course since its a conversion programme, The Postgraduate Diploma in Management (Actuarial Conversion Course now to be called Advanced Diploma) is an intensive programme designed to provide high calibre graduates from other disciplines an accelerated entry into an Actuarial Science career.
The course is run over 1 or 2 years depending how many subjects the student needs to complete, which will depend on how many actuarial subjects or exemptions they already have from another degree, or from ASSA. A student completing the Conversion Course will be able to attain exemptions equivalent to those of a student who has completed a BCom Actuarial Science, and may apply to do Actuarial Science Honours. , I am currently financially excluded to continue with my studies.
Sometimes all Doors maybe closed for me but i remembered they are not locked so this is why i created this Campaign. I have observed that within me there is the power to rise above any situation or struggle and transform into the Brightest, Strongest version of me than ever. I never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of my success will be how I treat other people.
The reason why I think I deserve the fund it's because I need to further my studies in Actuarial sciences so that I will manage to being a professional actuary , learning what's taught, mastering it, and also inquiring into unanswered questions and under-explored areas and going going to add value to the Economy of South Africa .I will appreciate the chance I'm being given and will continue to respect the reason it was given, to help others achieve their potential and contribute to society and to the company too. If I'm able to, I'll take that on as part of my purpose as well, to make this award even more powerful in society. I believe in being a contribution, so I'll also be a contribution to my fellow students that I am a graduate alumni from Cape Peninsula University of Technology(CPUT) based in Bellville campus, I was registered for National Diploma in Mathematical Technology in Applied sciences which I received the certificate on the 19 April 2018.
I am a very passionate student, hardworking and I live with force and devotion. I am person who insist much with trust and respect. I am profound of well-being and know how to appreciate the simplest things in life. I may have dreams like being an Actuary and I always follow my path with ambition and perseverance.
I have a great system in place for getting things done, which is great because its sense of determination. My best I shine under pressure and get things done in time. I have leadership skills too, that is why I have been representative of Mathematical technology students from 2015 till 2017, not forgetting that I was a motivator and tutor for first year students at CPUT in 2016, I was a team co-coordinator through work study programme for golden arrow bus services in 2016 and I was a career exhibitor in 2017 at CPUT in May 2017 during open day. I was a volunteer through service learning at Phillipi beautiful gate organisation were I was a tutor for maths and science grade 8 to 12
