Bafana – On graduation day

What did you study?
I am doing chemistry and geology. I have been here since 2011 because I was in an extra program. This is my final year. I am very excited. Next year I will be doing my honours degree at the University of Pretoria.

Fantastic, I was just going to ask you how long you have been studying.
Oh sorry.

No, dont be silly. How are you feeling today (graduation day)?
Well I am so excited. To be honest I am the first graduate at home. Where I am from it is a big thing, not only for me but also for my family and my community.

That is a big deal, congratulations. Your family must be so excited.
Yes, yes they are so excited. Unfortunately, my mother and my father, they couldn’t make it here. I am only having my brother here.

Best of luck and thanks so much for the chat.
