GWEN MATHEBULA (College Class of 2017)
After matriculating in 2017, I studied BA Law & Psychology at Wits University, which I have recently completed. I am currently pursuing my professional degree in Law (LLB).
My College years were truly a highlight of my life. What impacted me most was surviving the twelve gruelling days of the Grade 10 Journey. My process of self-introspection startedas a result of that trip, as well as discovering a resilience within me that I didn’t believe I had. That has carried me through until now.
I was also deeply impacted by Mrs Kolbe and her empathy towards us as her students. She looked at me one day and said “You’re a natural born leader”. I needed that affirmation and even though I didn’t believe it at the time, it changed my perspective about myself.
