Delft Dad’s big plans

After matriculating Ornette Danse’s biggest ambition was to work at SAPS as a switchboard operator.

The blind father of three was so determined to realise this dream that he worked as a switchboard operator at a police station for free for an entire year. This sacrifice eventually paid off when he was recruited into the SAPS's busy 10111 call centre.

While juggling his studies, work and maintain his family in Rwanda, a married father of two will be receiving his Master’s in Business Administration in Entrepreneurship with cum laude during this Summer Graduation.

She had won second place in the regional competition, so the win at the national competition came as a complete surprise for Luzane Aiken, a BTech Electrical Engineering student from Atlantis.

Slow journey to graduation pays off

The road to graduation took a detour for two Cape Town-based media specialists. Gasant Abarder and Nashira Davids dropped out of Journalism studies years ago to pursue flourishing careers, but the pull to complete their degrees always remained. The pair completed their portfolio of evidence for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and completed their BTech year in 2017. Abarder is the Regional Executive Editor of the Independent Group and Davids is a journalist and News Editor at the Tiso Blackstar Group which publishes the Sunday Times. Around two decades after starting their studies the pair graduate this week.
