WELL DONE: Engineering graduates take to the stage to be capped WELL DONE: Engineering graduates take to the stage to be capped

“Don’t be selfish, but be selfless,” says Kolosa Madikizela, Executive Director of Pragma.

Keynote speaker at the final Faculty of Engineering graduation ceremony, Madikizela, urged the graduating class to make a difference in South Africa.

A CPUT alumnus, Madikizela says the country is at a point where each of us should look at how we can positively contribute to our communities.

“Your education can open many doors for you, but it can also help you to make a difference in communities.”

Madikizela says South Africa is in desperate need of leaders who will “lead with the heart” and urged graduates to do just that.

“If we all do this, what an impact it will make on our country.”

Referring to a well-known quote, Madikizela says: “Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country.”
