In January 2011, I enrolled at Cape Peninsula University of Technology to complete a National Diploma in Mathematical Technology, specializing in Chemical Industry applications. In 2015, I converted my National Diploma into a BTech degree specializing in Project Management. During the course of my degree, I obtained three distinctions in Mathematics as well as a distinction in Project Accounting in my fourth year. My degree has given me a strong foundation in logical thinking skills, mathematical and statistical modeling; as well as project management strategies, implementation, monitoring, evaluation and research. I am proficient in a variety of computer applications including Matlab, C++ and MS Office. I am fully bilingual in English and isiXhosa. I work well in teams and have good people and communication skills. I have had to overcome many obstacles to achieve a degree-level education in science and technology. In this I have proven that I am highly motivated, disciplined and dedicated in achieving goals. I am keen to further my career by applying my skills in project management and mathematical technology. You can expect the same persistence, enthusiasm and intellectual application I have shown in my years of studying in your workplace.After graduating, I got involved in a GABS project for a period of two months (May and June2016) under CPUT as an enumerator and data capturer. In September 2016, I joined Yellowwood as an intern on the Insights team. I am passionate about working with numbers.
