I am a competent graduate of a Bachelor of Science Degree majoring in IT. I have attained numerous achievements of merit for academic excellence in both my Secondary Educational and Tertiary Educational Institutions. Having been listed as a local top achiever for Matric and receiving certificates of merit in 2008, I continued to overachieve at the University of Johannesburg where I went on to receive another award for being the top achiever for Computer Science 3 in the last year of my BSc Degree.
Because of the quality of my work, I was chosen as one of the individuals to represent the University of Johannesburg in an International Academic Workshop that was held in China in June 2013 but commenced in January of the same year. In this Symposium I gained an amazing experience working with mechanical and electrical engineers from diverse backgrounds and countries such as China, Colombia, Iran, Greece and the Netherlands. Overcoming the language barrier and producing fully functional projects of high International standards were the toughest requirements of this workshop and in the first semester of 2013, we managed to achieve this with exceptional results.
Another achievement that represents not just my academic work but also my practical work was my 3rd year Informatics group project. This project won 2nd place in the Academy of Computer Science and Software Engineering and went on further to win 2nd place in the Microsoft Imagine Cup National Finals.
So far I have proven myself as a proficient individual in the Institute where I’m currently completing my master’s degree (MSc IT) and I look forward to applying myself in any area of activity that will contribute to the progression of my career.
