Nqobile Hadebe, a 2016 OWLAG graduate studying Social Dynamics at the University of Stellenbosch, is among 32 students selected for the First-Year Achievement Award. Hailing originally from Orange Farm, Johannesburg, Nqobile will be recognized at a dinner at Neethlingshof on 11 April 2018 alongside her fellow honorands. Only top-achieving students are selected into this elite group, and each is invited to identify the Stellenbosch faculty member who has made the greatest impact on their academic experience to date. In turn, faculty comment on the factors contributing to students’ excellence.
Nqobile enthuses, “I am beyond honoured for being recognized as one of the recipients of this award. Finding what works for oneself in a demanding and challenging environment becomes crucial in propelling one further. I remain grateful to all the individuals who continue to invest their faith in me. Without them, this accomplishment would not be possible.” Congratulations, Nqobile!
