I have often heard people say politics is a dirty game. Many a times when l try to engage fellow students in dialogue they are quick to show boredom; Why did you choose Public Management they ask. Why not pick something more understandable like Accounting or HR? Well…

Overcoming the Bully

In the 3rd. grade, a girl called Liz and the other kids would laugh at me whenever I said the word “CHOCOLATE”. They would rub it in my face that I could not pronounce tʃɒk(ə)lət/ or “choklat” like normal people do. It didn’t matter that I was generally good at reading and writing or that I got praise from my teacher for being the best in diction that darn word CHOCOLATE always got in the way.

Being a student often times means good health is not a top-of-the-list priority – class attendance, assignments, tests, exams, having a social life- take centre stage. Funds are limited and there is little to no time to look after numero uno. Worry not because there are actually ways to maintain your health without spending all your precious money on gym membership, exotic detoxing herbs and exorbitant doctor’s appointments.

Be Open to Adventure

Adventure is a sure way to gain interesting experiences, knowledge and stories you can laugh about later (Because you know they sure as heck may not be funny in that moment). In my opinion, the biggest and most rewarding adventures include leaving your comfort zone and throwing yourself courageously into the unknown. That was me a couple of years ago, at the threshold of an adventure I might regret or enjoy. There was only one way to find out.

Success not about running the biggest business ever or driving a vrrphaaa, success is about how you made it, what you went through for you to get that business and drive that R32.Success is about the achievement of a goal. If you don’t sacrifice for what you want, what you want becomes the sacrifice. Honesty and loyalty are the key masters’ of success. If you want to succeed, prepare and do what you love. With preparation you create your own opportunities.

University is bigger than the classroom

We are three months into 2017, and as far as I’m concerned this year is nearly over- it’s going so fast! But well, there will be those that feel like March has dragged on. Especially considering that UNAM has already had a semester break and the next time we are sniffing any type of holiday will be sometime mid-April.

It’s simple: Never try to be somebody you are not, it is a pure waste of time.

Broaden Your Mind

I really detest getting my hair done. It is such a traumatic experience for me. I am not at all melodramatic but I never know if I will look great or if I will look like a circus clown, not to mention sitting for hours is really torturous. But if I am to be taken seriously in this world I just have to suffer for beauty. If anyone ever told you looks do not matter, they lied!
