My name is Zonke


I would firstly like to introduce myself. My name is Zonke. I’m a grade 12 student at LEAP who is intending on studying teaching next year. Today Mr. Gilmour introduced me to your project and I had the chance to look at your website. I must say that it has made me excited about my choice of career and has really made me realise how much change I will be contributing to my country education wise.

At first I didn’t want to be a teacher as I thought it was not the kind of job for me due to the strikes that were happening and the kind of teachers that are in the townships. It was a process of looking at myself and looking at what I really want to achieve in terms of personal achievements and careers. I realised that the problem with South African education, can change through me taking a step. I would have an impact in changing the methodology of teaching and improve the marks of black students especially in the township schools. As I will be starting my first year of teaching next year, I will also coach the debating society that I was in here at LEAP. In the future I would like to open my own school where I will specialise in debating and public speaking for students in the townships.

I would really like to get more involved in your project and keep the connection going between us please reply so as to keep the connection going.
