Message from the GM

Being the General Manager for the Academic Advising Centre (AAC) since April 2016 has been a great learning experience for me. The running of the Centre has come with its fair share of difficulties, but I have always been a solution-orientated person who enjoy challenges. I have seen the Centre evolve since the inception stage in 2016 to what it is now, and I am excited about the future of the AAC.

As the late former president Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world”. I believe the AAC team is in a great position to influence lives and change the world by being the support system that our students need.

In every person’s story there is always someone supporting their success. At the AAC we do that by building relationship with our students and filling in the gaps to ensure the success of our students.

To my AAC team, thank you for the efforts you take every day to reach out to our students to give them the support they need. I really appreciate you.

To my mentors, thank you for the vision and believing in my capabilities as a leader.

Most importantly to our students, my wish for you is that you succeed and be progressive in your careers. Please make use of the AAC services. We are here to assist you to become the best version of yourself possible.

As my late dad used to say, “If it cannot talk, it cannot defeat me”.
