My interest in Economics dates to my years in high school, where I excelled in commercial subjects thereby matriculating with distinctions. When I began my undergraduate studies, I had the opportunity of being exposed to the full range of commercial courses, all of which tended to reinforce and solidify my intense interest in Economics. I graduated top of my class with distinction and received an award for meritorious performance from ERSA. Apart from my educational background ,I have a proven track record of participating in economy-wide debates, research and competitions. Moreover, I poses quite a number of desirable leadership qualities and to reflect on this, I founded and ably led the establishment of various academic structures including ESA, APAS and UL Writers Guild. In addition to that, I served as the Chairperson of ESA and Research Coordinator of APAS in 2016. In 2017, I found myself in the Top 10 Best Young Economics Minds in SA (Nedbank and Old Mutual) and Top 100 Future Leaders of South Africa (Grad Connection).
